    Great Start into Smartwatches

    Posted
    Walden673

    The Pebble Time: My experience with the Pebble Time has been wonderful to date. I do have to say that Pebble has certainly came out with a decent smartwatch that fits for a lot of different people. I, for one, greatly enjoyed the experience of using this device. I will be going through my experiences with this device over a few categories. I will be reviewing the health aspects, the smart functionality, the app on the iOS, and the Pebble’s own OS. The build quality is quite decent for one. It does not feel that cheap. The band for the watch can be switched out with bands from Pebble and third party bands. This is a nice feature to dress up or dress down the watch to fit the occasion. The bezel of the watch is one of its weaker points. It can be scratched easily to reveal the steel or aluminum underneath. Other than that, the device has a nice feel around the wrist. One of the strong points of this build is the fact that it is water resistant and water proof down to thirty meters. This means that you can easily go swimming with it, take a shower with it, even go shallow diving with it, as long as the seal stays good. A VERY strong suggestion is to not press the buttons while submerged. Overall I generally liked the build quality and the feel of the watch, it was not too heavy of a feel, and the tactile buttons on the sides of the device feel solid. There is a nice small mic that is decent for what it is used for. I will go into the mic later when I talk about the OS. The battery life is not as advertised, but it is quite close. I was a decent user and got anywhere between four to five days instead of the seven days claimed. This is not a problem for me at all because the watch worked flawlessly even at a ten percent that I did have it at for battery testing. The screen is a nice full color e-ink/paper display. The viewing angles can be a bit annoying at times but the backlight works well in most situations. The resolution is good, just not great, but I can’t complain as it works well in most situations. The screen guard can pick up fingerprints easily. There is no touch capabilities. Health: The health tracking of the Pebble Time, or the Pebble OS, is rather basic at best. It does a fairly good job in tracking your steps, calories, distance, and active time. It does something that is new for me. It shows what might be typical for your day for steps at the current time block. I find this actually quite informative and motivating. The typical step count is taking from your past week. I find this actually quite accurate and find this a motivating force. The Sleep tracking of the Pebble Health and the Pebble time is actually decent for what it is. I find it pretty accurate for the most part. One of the biggest issues that I have though is something that I see in other fitness trackers: The ability to edit your sleep start and end times. I found this a rather annoying issue when on one of my days, I did not go to sleep until much later, but the fact that I napped, woke up, then went to sleep regularly, it tracked the nap and the wake up period as part of my regular sleep. I have seen the Garmin sleep tracking do that, but I was able to fix the issue by editing the sleep time. Smartwatch functionality and the OS: I do have to say that I really like the smart features of the Pebble Time OS. This has been an enjoyable time with it due to the fact that I have been able to get my notices through the watch. I also have the ability to go through the past notices, and go through my calendar events that I might have put in, such as of writing this a few days after June 6th, I have put in a calendar event for that day for the obvious reasons that it is the mark for D-Day, and also the mark for a string of battles on the Pacific front in 1942. Even though I will rarely, if ever, forget the date, I still have it on the calendar and it came up as a note in the morning. From that, I do want to talk about the Timeline feature. This feature is actually decent at best. It gives you a timeline of your day and you can add to it through the calendar or through voice to timeline apps. This timeline feature is decent, but it has a limited use. It only lists a total of five days, two days in the past, the current day, and two days in the future. Other than the limitation, the timeline feature is good. There is a wide variety of apps available on the Pebble App store/list. This service is powered by KiezlePay. There is a wonderful variety by third party app designers and Pebble themselves. The app support is quite wonderful. There are also big names out there that have built apps for the Pebble App ‘marketplace’ such as Pandora, Uber, Runkeeper, Misfit, and others. I found out that they can work with companion apps on the phone, such as Uber, Pandora, and Runkeeper. They can work with the respective apps on the phone. I used the Pandora watch app and the Pandora app nearly flawlessly. One of the minor issues that I have with this, as with the Garmin devices, is that the Pebble App on the phone needs to stay open in the background. If you close the app, you might have some issues with other apps that require a connection such as Pandora. This is a small issue in my opinion besides the fact that it can use your battery even with BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). There is a nice range of customization of the watch face through the app/watch face lookup. I looked through a lot of watch faces offered by Pebble and Third-Party developers and I am pleased with the selection as well as the options that are for a good portion of your faces. You can easily customize it to the color options you want and take full use of it. To change the settings of the watch, there is a settings app for the watch within the watch and you can change all settings of the watch through it. There is very little to no settings that you can change through the app on the phone. This, I find, is quite nice. It frees you from using the phone to fix the settings on the watch. This gives the watch more versatility to use without tying it to the phone for basic settings. The only setting that you cannot change easily through the watch is the watch face settings, that is done through the phone as there is at times, a lot of settings to change that would be cumbersome and unwieldy on the watch itself. The Phone App: The phone app is rather intuitive to use. I found it quite easy to use. With the Health portion, you can easily go through the past day, week, moth, and year. This goes the same with sleep. You can review your steps and sleep through it. This is also where you get your watch faces and apps for the watch. That menu section works very intuitive as well. The app also works as a store for the website as well. The app ties the watch to the phone and that is about it. The main thing about the app is that you can change the watch face and the settings for it through the app. That is the main tie for the app and the watch. Overview: Overall this is a very decent smart watch. I have been pleased with it throughout me review time. If I had the choice between the Garmin VivoSmart HR and the Pebble Time, I would choose the Pebble Time over the Garmin VivoSmart even with the issues that I have with the Pebble Time. The reason why is that the Pebble Time is a better Smartwatch and that is what I have been looking for overall. This watch has been what I was looking for if the Blocks has not come out or was not announced. Some of those issues that I have with the Pebble Time can easily be fixed with later updates to the firmware and software. I might suggest the ability to change the sleep times to Pebble after this review so they can possibly fix it. There might be a third party app that would allow you to do it, but I did not look that hard for that app. On the other hand, I would recommend the Pebble Time as a fallback device if you cannot afford the bigger name devices.

    Like it better than a fitbit or MS Band

    TL;DR/Overall impression: Of all the smart/fitness watches I tried, I liked the pebble time the best. It is a watch first, and smart/fitness gadget later. Love the battery life, comfortable feel, always on big screen [compared to fitbits/band, notifications and customizable faces. I dont have an iWatch - way too expensive for a watch IMHO. Areas of improvement - backlight, color brightness Detailed impressions: Watch: + The relatively big size with a huge range of customizable faces is a huge plus over fitbits and ms band. + Has a natural feel on my wrist - doesnt feel plasticky like fitbits or heavy like the band + Awesome battery life - goes without recharging for >3.5 days [manufacturer claims 7 days, havent validated that] + Doesnt turn off unlike the band/fitbit/apple watch - screen is always on + Screen works great outside/ in the sun - Colors appear washed-out in low light - nowhere close to the brilliance of the iWatch or even the band - Backlight is pretty muted - I have progressive glasses, and I find small fonts on the screen hard to make out in low light, even w/ backlight. No such issues in bright light Overall - a far better value for money IMHO as a watch over a band/fitbit/iWatch *Smart*watch: Wasnt quite sure what to expect since I wasnt going to reply to emails on such a small screen - so had no expectations. + It shows notifications from my iPhone + It can control (play/pause/skip) the iPhone music app as well some music/radio apps (the last app that played sound on my phone) like Pandora/NPR radio. Thought this would be useless since I am not a huge music/radio person - however, finding it pretty convenient to play/pause NPR on my phone docked to the sound system + Lots of apps in the pebble app store - mostly free + App store is pretty well organized and easy to use - Bewildered by most of the available apps. haven't yet figured out which ones are useful - App descriptions are pretty sparse - especially the free apps. Can't complain when folks donate their apps for free :) However, cant make up my mind whether I need an app or not Fitness: - With the misfit app on the iphone and the pebble, works like a basic fitbit - gives steps, calories, sleep patterns. Does not have a heart rate monitor and the misfit app does not calculate stairs climbed. There might be other apps that do - just havent found them yet.

    Excellent start for a smart watch

    Like any other item on the market the best approach is to believe part of what everyone says. The Pebble Time is a stylish and versatile wrist watch and is a vast improvement over the original Pebble, but does suffer (in my opinion) from having a smaller display, even though it is color e-paper. Older geeks like me still need reading glasses to read the display. That being said, I'm still enjoying many of the things it can do. I really haven't scratched the surface on all the apps that are available but, then again, I do have a life. I have put some of the apps and faces to work and I'm very happy with some (but not all) of them so far. On battery life - you will be able to go a solid 4 days without charging with average notification use (it does use a low power utility to keep bluetooth attachment to your phone, but it is still a power draw. You may also notice a slight to moderate decrease in battery life on your iPhone due to being constantly synced with your watch.). If you buy this watch expecting a week without charging then all you are doing with it is using it to tell time in daylight. After about 4 days of wearing I had concerns about possibly running out of power while out and not having a watch. It uses a device-specific charging cord (not a lightning or micro usb) and is not readily available as a timepiece while charging, so these facts may play into when to charge for you. While this may seem like "sour grapes" I do actually prefer buttons over a touchscreen. I could see the touchscreen being a distraction with potential unintended activations. Not an issue with the buttons - large enough and easy to use. All in all I'm happy with the Pebble Time. Give me a little larger display and this becomes a 5 star review.

    Great Smartwatch with one or two physical issues

    After being a Kickstarter backer and using my watch for close to a month now, I can say that I really do like the watch. There are some features that I would like to see that the others out there have, but there are enough apps to make it worthwhile, the watch is thin enough to make me happy as well. Battery life isn't exactly what they advertise, but close enough. It could be all of the notifications that I get on my phone. The two problems that really bother me though, are the bezel surrounding the screen and the backlight. The bezel is easily marred. Maybe It's just me, but I seem to bump it on just about everything which often leaves a mark. Most have rubbed off, but along one of the edges, the coloring is now gone due to this. Unlike in the pictures, the coloring isn't so pronounced. The backlight does work, but not as brightly as it's pictured in the ads or images online. I've responded to texts using the build-in microphone and I can say that this works well for the most part. It takes a little time to get used to how the functionality works with the buttons, but if you are even a little tech inclined, you can get it to work.

    Definitely an upgrade

    I originally had the 1st generation Pebble watch and liked the functionality of it. Unfortunately that one quit working, so I decided to upgrade to this one. I wanted a watch that was customizable and could display weather, time, date, text messages and calls. If it had health tracking, great. This does everything I need it to. The improvements I've noticed so far over the original Pebble are 1) More comfortable. The first watch had a longer body and the corners would shift uncomfortably against my wrist. The band is also a more flexible silicone type material. 2) Color display. 3) Pebble health included onboard. It's not as detailed as say a Fitbit, but it tracks steps and sleep alright. I'm sure with the wealth of apps available there's something that can get even more out of the readings. As always one of my favorite things about this watch is that it is easy to read in direct light. I've also seen many music remote apps online, but I've yet to find a music app that the onboard one doesn't work with at least for skipping songs. I haven't fiddled much with the voice texting, and I doubt I'll really use it that much but it's nice to have there. Overall it was a good buy. You can't beat the functionality for the value.

    I have had it for a few days now. Here are my thoughts: Pros: 1) The battery life is pretty good. The watch can last about a week on a charge. 2) The always on screen technology that the Pebble time uses allows you to always see the time without over using battery life. 3) This watch has buttons. I prefer buttons to touch screen. I really like a touch screen but if it's raining it basically disables any touch screen function. 4) All of the things that come with a smart watch. Notifications, being a watch, voice to text messaging. It shows caller ID on the watch so you can see whether or not you want to take your phone out or leave it alone. 5) Lots of apps and screens to choose from Cons: 1) I'd be nice if you could answer the phone with it 2) I don't like the way the apps are set up on the Pebble time. This would be a challenge on any watch-sized screen, but I've seen it done better. If you have any amount of apps on there at all you have to scroll through several screens to get to what you want. 3) Whereas I said there are a lot of apps and screens to choose from, many leave a lot to be desired. Took me a while to find what I wanted to put on the watch. Overall I am pleased with this watch.

    Tough Smartwatch

    My daughter's really tough on her gear, and she's beaten up a Fitbit, an off brand fitness device, and her last victim was the basis peak. The basis peak was tough, and took the beating, and still worked when it got recalled for heat related issues. We've had the Pebble Time now for about a month, and it's held up very well thus far. It doesn't have the touch screen, but there are plenty of other benefits. I personally see the lack of a touch screen as a benefit, based upon her usage. There are tons of apps and games available for the watch, and the built in microphone is something that she enjoys using. There'll be plenty of reviews that will tell you more about the features, but I'm choosing to focus on the toughness and availability of apps that help keep this watch fresh for my daughter. She absolutely loves being able to change watch faces according to her mood, and being able to send texts via voice using the built in microphone. Most of all, she doesn't have to take the watch off while swimming, showering, washing the dog, or playing in the mud. If you're going to spend above a hundred dollars on a fitness watch or band, shouldn't it be water resistant for swimming?

    I'm waiting for 2nd or 3rd generation iWatch, primarily because I do not think I would be happy with having to charge the watch every day or so. The Pebble Time lasts, as promised, about 7 days, which is what I'll be looking for in the iWatch 2 or 3. My other objection to the iWatch is it is only rated to about 3 feet in water...not enough for my lifestyle. The Pebble? 30 meters, more than enough. Apple will need to work on that feature also before I will buy. I like that the backlight comes on with a flick on my wrist. The many choices of watchfaces is fun. The current weather icons work well. It buzzes when I get a text or app messages, so I do not have to pull out my phone as frequently. Range to stay connected listed as 30 feet, and it is easily good at that distance, probably farther, depending on obstacles like walls. The watchfaces are fun, but the other apps haven't thrilled me, yet, but that's okay, I was only looking for a good watch to tide me over until Apple "catches up." It is a lightweight watch with a good watchproof band, and at $199, about half of the iWatch, it is a good substitute for the couple of years we will likely have to wait before iWatch 2 comes out.

    Needs Software Update before switching from Pebble

    I have been using my Pebble Time now for a month. I still miss my original Pebble's easy reading fonts for incoming caller, text and email notification. There is no Larger Font setting yet on Pebble TIme as with original Pebble. Being a person over 40, I find that I have to put on reading glasses to see who is calling, texting or emailing because the name is so small, although the graphic of a phone ringing is large. This makes the Pebble Time a step backwards for me who got used to glancing at my Pebble watch to see who was calling, texting or emailing. We are promised an update for Larger Font but recent update did not have it. I advise my Pebble-wearing friends to wait until then. Otherwise, the Pebble Time is what the others have said and if the font size would be fixed, I would recommend it immediately.

    Overall, this product does what it says. The e-ink is excellent, and is easily readable in the sun. 90% of the time the connection works, and I get my updates. However just like any other device there are a couple hiccups every now and again. The biggest selling point to this product, has to be the battery life. I have been using it for five straight days constantly, and have not had to deal with recharging it. While the apps are currently limited The ability to make your own watch faces is incredible. This product is a phenomenal watch for those that are looking for a long-term replacement for their watch and updating information. Product is constructed well, putting the users comfort in mind. Another great selling feature is that I can replace any band 22 mm that I want. If you are not looking to spend the ridiculous amount of money on an Apple Watch, and want the ability to respond via voice (Android only currently, Apple soon) then this product is right for you.

    This is my second Pebble. The 1st being the Kickstarter edition of their 1st watch. Relatively long battery life (up to a week as per specs) and always-on screen are the distinctive features of this watch. The body is plastic but the top is glass and metal. It's relatively thin for a smartwatch and does not feel bulky nor too cheap. The top metal band is a gunmetal color. The screen of this watch displays a handful of colors (16 or so); and is visible during daytime. There are hundreds of watch faces available and a handful of useful apps that run on the watch with assistance from the phone; like swam, yelp, uber, pandora controls. As for fitness it has a pedometer and works very well with Apple health. It has a microphone for replying to SMS and taking voice notes. Integration of notifications and call alerts work very well on iOS; with different color codes based on the app that's generating the notification. It also presents a timeline with calendar and weather. It connect to the phone via Bluetooth and gets internet access through the phone (iOS or Android).

    I really wasn't in the market for a smart watch when my husband purchased it for my birthday. It did take me a few days to get use two and now I LOVE it. Upon charging, the face does seem very dim, but with a shake of your wrist, it lights up well. I was able to add apps to connect my facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, ect for all their notifications. When replying back to a text, the voice recognition is about 90% accurate. I've added other apps that better fit me. The steps and sleep counter is a pretty neat feature, never realized I walked so much. I also use a weather app for updated info, a TV guide to remind me what shows are on, ESPN for all the updates and scores on my favorite teams and so much more. It is not a touch screen, which I'm OK with, and it is water proof to a certain amount, overall, it sold me a features and ease of use. I would and have recommend this product to both Android and Apple users

    Versatile Smart Watch

    This watch is very versatile, with loads of options. It has gorilla glass so I am not afraid to wear it all the time. It's not 100% accurate, but I have yet to find ANY that is. You can change the watch face on it and the improved pebble app on my phone has REALLY made seeing my activeness and sleep times a complete joy. There are apps for the watch that you could play games on it as well, but as we all should know by now the more you put on an electronic the less the battery life. That being said I think I charge my watch once a week. You can also turn off less desired notifications (after the watch has seen the notification once). You can also use this watch for sending text messages (voice recognition) and it is pretty accurate. There is also a way to change the canned replies. One word of advice when changing canned replies. It will wipe all the replies out when you edit them, so be sure you know what replies you want to put on there because what you put is the only ones that will be on there.

    If you want a cheap watch that is a bare bones notification device and music changer for iOS then you have come to the right place. Overall great watch and functionality and performance... For what you pay for the screen should be a little better... I mean it is crisp if you are in direct sunlight but the backlight works as a cheap Casio watch would look in 1987... The price of the Apple Watch dropped and I returned this and bought that... I mean if it was $50/60 I would hands down own this along side the Apple Watch but if you are going to spend over $100 you might as well just get an Apple Watch if you have and iPhone.

    Great Watch - Always Improving with Updates

    So far I love my pebble watch! I am using it with an iPhone 6, and love the push notifications. Sometimes, I receive notifications that I really do not want to (such as someone typing on snapchat), but that's more of a functionality issue with the iPhone. The battery life is truly amazing, and they've made updates where you can control vibrations as well as backlight. I use the alarm, and a plethora of apps which seem to work well so far. The watch is also waterproof, I use it swimming, but generally not in the shower. I wish it were a little more durable. Granted, I am wearing it everyday, but there are already scuffs and knocks in the screen. Overall, I'd highly recommend. I waited for it, didn't cave in for the Apple Watch, and I'm very happy as a first time Pebble owner!

    I am using this device with my Android Marshmallow phone, and Android Wear. I can get about 5 days of usage out of the device, if I limit the notifications sent to the device - use the app. All it is though, is a notification device, with very limited return functionality. They have pre-canned responses for email and text messaging, and a small wind noise sensitive microphone for dictating long messages. I do find myself trying to swipe at the screen as if it is a touch screen, but the buttons are well organized and consistent. They have lots of different watch faces, but I find that the Pebble Store is best described as primitive. As a exercise and sleep device, it can be considered to be a very fancy step counter, that happens to tell time and weather in simple colors. But I wanted the long battery life and I got that.

    I purchased this because the Pebble series are tough and sturdy, with functions that my kids like. However, while the watch itself is pretty sturdy, the charging connector itself doesn't seem to be holding up well. Not the charger itself, but rather the contacts on the watch. May be just a defective unit, but I'm having connection issues with one of the two units purchased. Back to the store it goes this weekend. Hopefully the replacement one works like the 2nd unit we purchased. Apart from that, the unit is working great, and it offers great functionality and water resistance for a smart watch, which is hard to find. My son likes the ability to dictate text messages to his phone and send it. Nice features for an affordable price.

    This watch is great in terms of functionality. It's fairly well built, has a light interchangeable strap and does a good job staying connected to my Verizon Note 4. If I don't mention some aspect of the watch, that means I found it to work exactly the way I expected it to. The only real issue I find with the device itself is that the display is hard to read in lower light settings, and the flick of the wrist to enable backlight feature works about 70% of the time (which isn't terrible). The features aren't significantly enhanced over the original Pebble, however, so I don't know if it justifies the $100 price jump. At $150, it's a great buy. At $200, I would say it is worth it if you know what you are paying for and those features are important to you.

    I got the Pebble Time about two weeks ago and I enjoy it quite a bit. I'm always interested in new things and I enjoyed my time with the original Pebble. The screen on the time is nice and bright when outside, and the backlight does a fairly good job when in Ill lot location. I do notice the color is very washed out when the backlight kicks on vs natural light. I've only had one issue with the Pebble Time. About after a week of having it, it completely disconnected from my phone and placed itself into recovery mode. The Pebble refused to connect to my phone, or any phone for that matter. Due to this, I was unable to restore the Pebble and get it back into working order. Best buy allowed me to return it and everything has been good with the new one. Very neat and different little device.

    Pebble Time

    I was a huge fan of the Pebble watch, so when the Pebble Time was released, I was there first day. (Didn't do the kickstarter.) I don't feel like I use the watch to the fullest potential, because there is a lot it can do. I use it mostly to sneak read text messages while in meetings. My biggest complaint is that you can't automatically start your music from the watch control. You have to have it open on the phone for it to work. I don't remember having this problem with the original Pebble. Plus - the colors on the screen aren't vibrant, look very muted. But you can't view pictures on it from my experience, so it doesn't need that type of color resolution. Other than that, it is pretty fantastic! Lots of apps available.
