Pebble Smartwatch for iPhone and Android (Black) Review






Upgraded to this from Nike Fuelband

Pros

  • Easy to setup
  • So much potential
  • Number of apps and watchfaces increasing by the day
  • Absolutely love the notifications on my watch instead of having to pull phone out to check (also a con, see below)
  • Battery life
  • Waterproof - so far so good in shower and pool
  • Integration with runkeeper


Cons

  • Still early in development
  • Its a very well known issue but notifications sometimes (understatement) drop from IOS (Deleted space like the recommend and try and clear background apps but still have issues with getting all notifications - IOS 7.04 Jailbroken)
  • No activity monitor/pedometer integrated without having to be in exclusive app or companion running on phone


Final Point
Lots of potential but I would wait until they integrate sensor on board in newer models. I returned mine due to the fact that their are no sensors, the notifications stopped working almost everyday. I moved on to a fitbit, but looking forward to the Apple iWatch!
