So far this is what it looks like, I am using it with my Pebble Classic watch and it is installed on my BQ Acquaris E4.5

You  connect your Pebble watch to your Ubuntu device using bluetooth.
You can manage notifications by deciding witch ones to activate...

install apps directly from the app and manage their settings...
