Last night I converted by pebble from being a single contained unit, to a 3 part kit.

I am probably going to have to replace it.
Pebble the company is dead, I can still get replacement hardware from amazon or ebay and I suspect it will be generally available at reasonable prices for a year or two.
I used my pebble for 3 things
- It's a smart watch, so I used it as a watch for time and date
- I used it for weather, with the awesome relaxing watch face
- The vibrate function is amazing for notifications. My phone hasn't been off silent for since I got the pebble, notifications for calls and messages are awesome. Better I can forward notifications from a service bus app like pushover and generate them based on things I want.
I can just wear a watch to deal with 1, for 2 I am probably going to use the awesome forecast.io app and not rely on being able to casually check the temperature.
For 3 I am really at a loss what to do. I could just replace the pebble, but really I think I want a smart band with a vibration motor for notifications.
If what I want doesn't already exist, it is probably too niche to ever become a thing.
