In conclusion smart watches have a long way to go, but this is pretty damned good!
The bluetooth range is very impressive meaning that I am able to get to more calls that I need when my wrist buzzes, and reject those that are of little importance.
Oh, and it tells the time too!
I've had my Pebble for just over a year. In the early days it was a bit flakey, with unreliable connections and few apps. But as time has gone on and with each update it has now become an integral addition to my iPhone.
Firstly it connects to your iPhone using both Bluetooth 2 and Bluetooth LE. As it comes out of the box it will simply show the notifications your iPhone displays through the Notification Centre. That's from any app on your phone, not just emails and texts. You can then add to you Pebble with apps from the Pebble iPhone app to increase what your phone can do, as well as additional watch faces. So, from constant weather updates from within watch faces to when the next bus, train or tube is due, the Pebble does it all. RSS news feeds, loads of fitness apps, thousands of watch faces and 99% all free. It only needs charging every 5-7 days and the e-paper display is readable in any light with an excellent backlight when there isn't any.
The Pebble has evolved into a fully fledged smart-watch in a way Samsung can only dream of.
I like the tech look of the watch, but it may not suit someone used to gold/silver bling.
Comfortable to wear, it has already become my constant companion. Fun to use, and much more than another gadget - this is no toy - it is joy!
That's without some of the apps that can be downloaded, my favorite is runkeeper. buying the pebble is making sense..
New apps arriving daily you can do anything.
This little beauty arrived this morning, I am using the watch with an IPhone 5 & all is working really well, the watch automatically updated to the latest firmware one I had paired the pebble to my phone notifications from the phone to the watch are now instant.
Downloaded an app called Smartwatch + which adds more features to the watch such as live weather & stocks etc.
Really pleased with my purchase after a few weeks of making my mind up whether to buy the Pebble or not.
The only downside for me is the strap on the watch is not that attractive but a replacement 22mm leather strap is in the post to me now as I type this.
Thanks again guys
Since changing to android phone and installing a few apps on the phone and the watch, I now have Full control of music (including volume), full control of phone calls including viewing contacts and starting a call from my watch! (great with bluetooth a headset) and the ability (using Tasker) to even launch apps or change settings on my phone...
TL,DR - if you're an iPhone user, functionality is limited. If you're on android 4.2+ and install companion apps (many of which are free) the Pebble ROCKS!
Loses one star because it's a bit plasticky and you really need a screen protector on it as otherwise the plastic front of the screen scratches easily. (Google for "gadgetwraps pebble")
