Default Apple now rejecting apps with Pebble Smartwatch support?

We have just had the latest version of our SeaNav US iOS app rejected by Apple because we support the Pebble Smartwatch and say so in the app description and meta-data.
We noticed that your app or its metadata contains irrelevant platform information in the app. Providing future platform compatibility plans, or other platform references, is not appropriate for the App Store.

Specifically, your app and app description declare support for thePebble Smartwatch.

Next Steps

Please remove any instances of this information from your app and its marketing materials, including the Application Description, What's New info, Previews and screenshots.

*update: not a new policy

Apple is not rejecting apps that support Pebble. This is the usual hyperbole from this site. Apple's guidelines say you can't talk about other platforms in your description. It's not a new rule, this developer broke the rule, and has now rightfully had his or her app rejected. The only mystery is how he or she got away with it for so long. The fix is not to remove Pebble support, it's to fix the description. Once that fix is made, the app will be approved, and will still support Pebble.

Apps or metadata that mentions the name of any other mobile platform will be rejected
