    Practical

    I think I have it figured out. Pebble is for kids who are never exposed to sunlight and want silly graphics on their watch face. Metawatch is for working class people who want easy access to practical information. You can easily customize the watch face readout. I have my Meta watch face divided into three sections. The top half reads time and date. Bottom left reads current and hi/lo temperatures. Bottom right reads calendar events. Just a couple gripes that prevent a 5 star rating: 1) I want the ability to format the time and date data to my preference. For example instead of "2/27 THU" I would prefer it read THU 27-FEB-14. 2) The watch face has to be at just the right angle otherwise the data is unreadable. It looks like some kind of reflective mirror material. It is readable in direct sunlight, unlike the Pebble. 3) A replaceable watch band. Looks like if the plastic watch band breaks you have to replace the entire watch.

    Lots of potential

    As much as I'd like to give this 5 stars, there is still a lot of room for improvement here. I've paired it with an iPhone 4S, and it is pretty good for simple functions such as letting me know of an incoming call, text message, calender event, or even Facebook notifications. However, it will only remember the last function. There is no way to scroll through past info. For that, you need to take your phone out of your pocket. A full charge for the watch lasts several days, but bluetooth being activated on your phone is a bit of a drain on it. Though not totally ugly, it kind of reminds me of one of those old calculator watches, given what it does, I can overlook this...... maybe 4 stars.

    I had the metawatch for about two weeks I updated my iPhone 5 software and the meta-watch would no longer work properly after that point. I tried to update the software for the watch but what's unsuccessful so I returned it, and I purchased the Pebble steel watch instead. It was lighter, easy to update, and it had a lot more features and options. I did love the look of the metawatch. It functioned great for the first two weeks but I had to return it when it went haywire after my iPhone upgrade. I do love my Pebble Steel Watch so much more although it's much more expensive.

    For the price I paid $40, didn't expect nothing wao! It works ok. Battery life is excellent. Expect disconnection if you walk farther than 10 or 15 feets from phone. It also freeze and restart sometimes. I use it for basic features, to know who's calling me and see who send me a text. If you are ok with that then buy this one. I don't regret buying it for $40 but I wouldn't pay more than that for this item.

    My watch worked great when I had an iPhone 5, but when I upgraded to 6+ I started having lots of problems. The watch began to frequently disconnect from phone Bluetooth. Frequent disconnects and reconnect caused rapid loss of charge. Instead of a charge lasting a week there were several times I didn't make it through a single day. Proprietary charge clip has been misplaced and replacement cannot be purchased anywhere! Watch is now useless.

    If you're an early adopter type then check it out. Got it on sale wilhen the price dropped to less that 100. Would not pay more than that as the functionality is glitchy - keeps losing the bt connection and its a pain to reconnect. You need the metawatch app which doesnt provide a whole heck of a lot of options. The watch gets alot of attention - i get asked just about every day what it is.

    Neat and Functional but Zaps Phone Battery

    I really like this device. The first two days I used this, I was at my desk with my phone charging as needed. A few days later and I go to a football game with 80% battery and te phone is dead before the end of the third quarter. Setup was easy, widgets are cool and informative, but battery drain on my phone prohibits me for using it when I need it most - when I am out and about and away from a charger.

    Watch seems durable & is a good notification watch

    The watch is a good notification watch but you can't see past calls or texts from the watch. If you receive a text and then a call or another text about the same time, the previous text can't be read and you have to get your phone out to read it.

    I have Pebble, and Smartwatch2. Needed a smartwatch I could take with me to the pool or beach and I like geek stuff. If its your first smartwatch its ok, but if you want better and more application choices then wait or get Smartwatch2. Most likely will return Metawatch to store today.

    I open the package, tried it on, and it was so bulky and unattractive that I didn't even charge it. I repackage it and returned it to Best Buy. It may be a really good watch but I didn't like the look and feel of it.

    The watch is ok. A bit difficult to up date but got it done. The buttons push to easy which is bad when u go to look at your watch and see a different screen

    The watch is nice. It does not adjust the music. Also the charging clip does not stay connected to charging clip. I am working at replacing the clip. The customer service via email is ok so far.

    Because of the price I paid (best buy deal of the day) I do not regret buying this watch. When metawatch improves the app for this watch hopefully it will function better.

    Not Good for Iphone

    Very limited watch on iPhone use. Hard to maneuver watch due to still developing the use of iPhone functions on watch. To my understanding works good on Androids.

    If you only want to view messages this is good watch for you. If you want to answer the phone or other functions this is not the watch for you.

    Watch is easy to use but the digital display is very hard to see in sunlight. The watch holds up when submerged in water.
