Pebble- after watching this company for a long time on the kickstarter website and being very interested in the wearable tech. I decided to give the Pebble smartwatch a try in December of 2014.
I must say that I went into this Pebble-iPhone relationship thinking I will just give this a shot for about a few months or so until Apple unveil/release the much anticipated Apple Watch. But after wearing the Pebble for a few months I’ve grown to like this freaking piece of tech.
The Pebble basic layout and ease of use, plus the added bonus of 4-5 days on a single charge has reeled me in and has me hooked. I am so hooked that I’m really thinking of skipping the first generation of the Apple watch altogether. Can you believe that? Coming from an Apple Fanboy, no way.
Being able to glance down at my wrist in a meeting to read and dismiss a notification of text message, or maybe how about packing the dishwasher and being able to dismiss or answer an incoming call (Bluetooth headset on).
As much as I am anticipating the Apple Watch to the wearable game, I have to say with the news of recent that Pebble has a new watch and interface on the roadmap for 2015 it has me second guessing the Apple watch purchase.
So in short if you or anyone you know wants to get into the wearable. I would highly recommend the Pebble Smartwatch.
With all of things mentioned above plus many other things such as tracking my sleep or steps with the Pebble and having it recorded in Apple Health App, also checking in via Swarm or skipping currently playing track on my iPhone.
It is totally worth it.
