Pebble Watch review

 

The Pebble watch began its life with a simple proposition: what if a little watch could pair with your phone and run apps right from your wrist? It took about a year, but the true dream of the Pebble has finally been realized: a new Pebble app store...

The Pebble Watch is waterproof, runs a ton of apps, and works with both iOS and Android phones. A new app store improves the whole experience.

A lack of touch screen and multitasking limits the capability of apps; scratch-prone polycarbonate design doesn't feel nearly as impressive as the Pebble Steel.

Thanks to plenty of apps and an affordable price, the original plastic Pebble remains a solid budget smartwatch pick.

Pebble Smartwatch review

 

It's kicked up a storm on Kickstarter, but does the Pebble make a splash or sink like a stone?

This probably won't be the last smart watch you buy, but it should be the first. An impressively timely debut

Smartwatches have created a whirlwind. Pebble sits calm at the centre, focusing on functionality

Pebble Smartwatch review

 

Kickstarter project proves wearable technology is the future

Handsome design, simple interface, great battery life

Display sometimes poor, far too much searching around the web for suitable apps

The Pebble Smartwatch is a great first attempt at a smartwatch, but despite all its 'indie' qualities we have to say that £107 is a steep asking price for such a basic device. It does look great, and with a few apps installed it is certainly very...

Smartwatches are all the rage right now, but while Samsung and Apple are furiously working away behind closed doors, one company's already gone from Kickstarter to shop shelves with its Pebble watch, which connects to your iPhone or Android phone over...

Pebble Smartwatch

 

The smart-looking Pebble smartwatch delivers on its promise of wireless notifications right on your wrist, and while there are still some bugs that need to be ironed out, if developers can get behind the platform, the potential is huge.

Simple, understated design. Easy setup. Instantaneous notifications. Customizable watch faces. Syncs with Android or iOS.

Greater iOS app compatibility than Android. Some bugs.

Conclusion As a category, the smartwatch is still in its infancy and despite its many improvements, the Pebble is still more for the avid geek than for the everyday consumer. The growing collection of third-party apps separates the Pebble from its...

Pebble Watch Review

 

The Pebble is a fashionable e-ink smartwatch that displays notifications from your smartphone and offers an array of apps, but the experience is limited on iOS.

Comfortable, attractive design; E-ink display easy to read in sunlight; Robust customization apps; Waterproof

Limited iOS experience; Drains smartphone battery

Pebble Smartwatch Review

 

Pebble stole Kickstarter's heart, eclipsed companies hundreds of times its size at CES, and got many people reconsidering the role of the wristwatch in today's smartphone-saturated world: not bad for a startup already burned once from a failed...

It’s fair to say we’re torn over Pebble. After the furore of the Kickstarter campaign, the practicality is a generic-looking watch with basic notification functionality; yes, there’s the promise of so much more, but we’re nowhere near the point where...

Pebble smartwatch review

 

Pebble is already an excellent value, but new features will increase the appeal.

Easy setup ; Stable performance ; Android / iOS compatibility ; Waterproof to 50 meters

Limited app selection at launch

We've really enjoyed our time with Pebble so far -- it's not a fashion statement, necessarily, but we wouldn't be surprised to see it pop up on many wrists in the weeks and months to come. Functionality is still quite limited at this point, and...
