Starting today, Pebble officially supports Android Wear notifications. This means Android Wear-compatible apps can now communicate with Pebble devices.

Now that it’s available for everyone, though, the feature should help Pebble compete with actual Android Wear devices like the Moto 360. Of course, Android Wear watches aren’t exactly flying off the shelves.
Pebble’s real threat is probably the Apple Watch, but we won’t know if Apple’s smartwatch is a hit until it’s released this April.
For now, here are two videos showing off the Pebble’s new-ish Android Wear support.
