Sure, by definition every company is small at the start...but sometimes it takes very long time to grow in size and do what you are known for...Samsung for example was created in 1938 as a trading company and entered electronics in the sixties and dominated phone market just recently...this is 70 year long journey...Kris

Evem Apple and Samsunng had to start somewhere, which means they had to start off small as well. If the American Dream is alive anywhere, its definitely in the tech sector...

I agree, I really think it is the simplicity that made this a success.

I'm thrilled that the Kickstarter campaign was so successful - and that the cost estimations for the device were correct.  If a Kickstarter campaign is a loss leader market test or the materials costs are slightly off then such a "windfall" of orders could prove to be a success disaster. Well done.

Really an out-of-box thinking and simple implementation of that idea with limitless product variations possibilities.

I'd love to hear other experiences with smartwatches and/or crowdsourcing.

@DrFPGA: Yeah, I think Pebble's goal is to monitor but not manipulate data, but even that as you note implies the need for security.

Anyone know if BT has any built in security mechanisms?

If healthcare apps are on the table simplicity would seem to be impossible to retain. Security requirements and other medical standards would seem to be the issue unless the watch is just a gateway to a central medical 'server' in the home. Maybe thats the best way to go.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
