Pebble Time review: A smartwatch stepping stone

 

When Pebble announced its second-generation smartwatch it became the most successful Kickstarter project ever, smashing all records and reaping $1 million in just 30 minutes of the funding round starting.

Full colour e-paper screen (albeit 64 colours to play with), up to seven days battery life, lightweight design, simple in operation, waterproof to 30 metres, works with both iOS and Android

Cannot filter notifications – it’s all or nothing, microphone and voice functionality is underutilised, backlight is too dim, plasticky finish for the price

The Pebble Time is a highly versatile device that is the product of experience, one that gets the fundamental basics right. It's small and comfortable-to-wear footprint delivers unparalleled battery life, while a vast selection of watchfaces and...

Pebble Time review: Is this the ultimate Apple Watch alternative?

 

It's geeky, charming and has an impressive 5-day battery life

Excellent battery life ; Unashamedly geeky ; Comfortable

Looks outdated next to rivals ; Large bezel could bother some

Pebble Time review: The best smartwatch available for under £100

 

The Pebble Time is nearly a year old, and now that it's gone down in price its simplistic yet accomplished charm is easier to recommend.

The Pebble Time is a good smartwatch, made all the more attractive by its price. It is probably the least you can spend on a fully-fledged (there's some cheap tat out there) smartwatch, costing as it does the same as some high-end activity trackers. If...

Pebble Time review

 

Pebble blasts its way into the future with… a 64-colour screen

It’s way too easy to scratch, but great battery life and a simple UI make this a dream to live with.

Pebble Time review

 

The antithesis of the Apple Watch, there are a few teething problems but the Pebble Time is still a great smartwatch

We’re largely enamoured with the Pebble Time. The design is respectable, the key features work reliably, the app store is well stocked and the battery life is beyond compare with most smartwatches.

Pebble Time Review: In Depth

 

Pebble Time review: Pebble's latest e-ink smartwatch boasts all-week battery life and a colourful new screen, but is it the perfect Android and iOS wearable?DesignLike the original Pebble watch, the…

Colourful screen ; Great battery life ; Plenty of apps

Iffy notifications

The Pebble Time is a really good all-purpose smartwatch that has two main advantages over most other wearables. Namely, it can connect to both iOS and Android handsets and it has really good battery life.

Pebble Time review

 

The original Pebble smartwatch blessed your wrist with plenty of what we've come to expect from modern smartwatches, including notifications, reminders and app integration, and the company's come a long way since its humble Kickstarter beginnings. The...

While the Pebble Time does look a little toy-like, it's anything but. It's a solid timepiece that keeps you up to date on the going ons of your digital life, pushing forward notifications to your wrist rapidly, while also incorporating smart elements...

While we like the Pebble Time for its forward-thinking simplicity, it does fall down a in a few areas. While it's smart enough to be used to reply to messages with a quick voice reply, or a shortcut here or there, it's not as smart as some of the other...

The Pebble Time is definitely a step in the right direction for Pebble, giving you a slick smartwatch that peppers your wrist with all the notifications you could need, but it's not perfect. Its plastic build quality leaves much to be desired, while...

Pebble Time vs Apple Watch comparison: Battery life or beautiful display?

 

Apple and Pebble have similar design views on what a smartwatch should look like. Is that where the similarities between the two end? We find out…

Come back when both watches have been released for a full verdict.

Pebble Time

 

The Pebble Time brings a color display and a microphone to the company's winning formula, making it a solid choice for first-time smartwatch buyers.

Excellent battery life. Always-on color display. Voice-to-text functionality. Instantaneous notifications. Comfortable. Lots of apps. Syncs with Android or iOS.

App store needs curation. Little reason to upgrade.

Conclusions The Pebble Time is the Game Boy Color to the Pebble's original Game Boy, and that's great. It displays charming visuals in color, adds voice-to-text communication, and has all the things you expect a Pebble watch to have: instantaneous...
