This repository contains the Gobot adaptor for Pebble smart watch.

It uses the Pebble 2.0 SDK, and requires the 2.0 iOS or Android app, and that the "watchbot" app has been installed on the Pebble watch.

How to Install

go get -d -u
  • Install Pebble 2.0 iOS or Android app. (If you haven't already)

        work := func() {
                watch.SendNotification("Hello Pebble!")
                watch.On(watch.Event("button"), func(data interface{}) {
                        fmt.Println("Button pushed: " + data.(string))
