While Pebble supports both Android and iOS, one of the few smartwatches to do so, it leaves out a portion of the mobile world out in the cold.

As the little 8-bit, smiling watch humorously mocks us (not really), we’re left to wonder what’s going on.

Sony tipped to be considering an “all e-ink” smartwatch

Smartwatches might be useful, at least to some, but their battery lives are nothing to write home about, given the available space you can cram a battery into. Some smartwatch makes, most notably Pebble, have opted to stay with the colorless but more power-efficient e-ink types of display. Based on an insider source, Sony might be eying something similar too, but with an intriguing twist. It won't just be the watch face that will be using e-ink, but the whole wrist band itself as well.
