The first Pebble developer SDK is already in limited testing, the company has confirmed, allowing coders to create custom watchfaces for the smartwatch.

Full production is now planned for 85,000 watches, but ramping up for that kind of volume will mean Kickstarters will have to wait a bit longer to get their wares.
