  • Toys 'r' Us would have been more appropriate. Ugliest piece of tech I've seen in a while. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Seriously tho who allowed this thing to leave the drawing board? I'm a Classic man
  • Compared to Android wear offering and judging by the meh look of the watch pricing is important Posted via the Android Central App
  • What is the facination with pebble when there's so many better options in form and function? I like underdog stories but pebble is just so cheesy compard to the current batch of smart watches out there Posted via the Android Central App
  • I got a pebble steel with a metal band and it looks good to me (not jaw dropping, but it works). I've had people recently asking me if it's an Apple Watch - which shows average consumers don't really know form differences too much. I decided to go with the PS because of the lower cost. It gives me all the notifications I need just fine. And, I figure the smart watch market is just in the beginning, so I will give it a few more years to work the kinks out before I drop $300/$400+ on a watch. And of course, 7 days on a battery is AWESOME!
  • I had someone ask if my pebble time was an apple watch today! Posted via the Android Central App
  • The fascination with Pebble is: A) they were first
    B) they were crowdfunded
    C) they are the little guy
    D) they offer a very affordable product It is no surprise that pretty much everyone (but the Apple people) are rooting for them even if they would never personally buy their products
  • This x1000. It literally looks like my watches from my pre teen years. They are in dire need of a designer. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I dunno. Agree. It makes no sense to me, whatsoever. I use Android Wear with Sony Smartwatch 3 and am quite happy with how much I can do from the watch, and that it lasts at least the day (given all the functions). Happily charge it by my phone at night, or periodically through the day at my desk.
  • I have one that I purchased to supplement my 360. It does what I want. Nothing fancy and in my opinion looks a lot better in person than in the pics. Biggest issue I have is that it's hard to see in some room light. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I think in person it looks good and I am really enjoying mine, also I don't have to charge it every day and worry about the battery like most android wear watches. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Also I changed the strap for a black leather one and it makes it look even better. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Would have been nice to include the Suggested Retail Price.
  • 199 for pebble time, 279ish for pebble time steel. . Kickstarter was 179/249 I think Posted via Android Central App
