Pebble’s New Smartwatch Getting Bluetooth Smart Device Control API in 2015

Pebble’s killing it over on Kickstarter with their new Time smart watch, but lost in all the shuffle was the mention way down their Kickstarter page that they will be creating an “Bluetooth Low Energy API" to enable control Bluetooth Low Energy (AKA Bluetooth Smart) enabled devices.  
Specifically, here’s what they said: "(Later in 2015) Bluetooth Low Energy API. Use Pebble to control BLE-enabled objects"
I’ve been somewhat obsessed with smart watch control in the smart home ever since I created the first panel on that specific topic at CES 2014, but now it seems everyone is jumping on board. Put this together with Tim Cook’s recent mentions of the Apple Watch being a key control interface for things like automobiles, and I expect you’ll see some serious advancement in the wearable space around integration with smart home and the broader IoT market this year.
