Previously revealed in December alongside a new SDK for developers, smartwatch maker Pebble is today launching its dedicated app store for the device. The company’s blog post says the store is now live through the Pebble app on iOS and currently offers over 1000 apps and watchfaces:

The appstore features separate areas for apps and watchfaces, with six app categories: Daily, Tools & Utilities, Notifications, Remotes, Fitness, and Games. This makes it easier than ever to find your next favorite app — whether you’re tracking your workout, managing your music, or controlling your thermostat.

Since Pebble is only capable of running eight apps at any one time, the app also features a locker feature that will allow users to store and manage downloaded apps. All content in the store is currently offered for free as Pebble does not yet allow developers to charge for apps or watchfaces.

You can download the updated Pebble Smartwatch app rolling out today for iOS to check out the new app store.
