    Comfortable with its place in the world

    Posted .

    The Pebble Time is my first pebble - I had seen the original around over the last couple years and liked the concept, but didn't like their looks. So when I found out Pebble was coming out with a new version in a smaller, lighter, more ergonomic design (and color screen!) I thought I'd give it a try. So I backed the Kickstarter campaign. What I like most about the Pebble compared to other smartwatches is how you immediately get the sense that it's comfortable with its purpose. Other watches seem to be in their teenage years, still getting their feet under them and trying to find what they're good at. The Pebble has reached maturity; it's had some life experience and found its calling. The base functionality brings notifications and reminders to your wrist, and lets you take simple actions based on them. The third party apps and watchfaces let you build off of that and do all sorts of crazy stuff (like order pizza or play flappy bird), if you're so inclined. While the Pebble works with both iOS and Android, it has quite a bit more functionality when paired with an Android device. The design is a bit... playful. I like my watches to be a bit more classy and refined, so I immediately put a link strap on it (it's compatible with any 22mm strap) and a Gadgetwraps brushed metal skin - the result is quite nice. Battery life is quite good - while not the 7 days advertized, I probably get about 5 days on average. Definitely better than the competitors, though not as good as the original Pebble. The screen is nice - it's still an "e-paper" display, so it reflects light rather than emitting it (although for low-light conditions, a flick of the wrist will turn on a backlight for a few seconds). In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefit of having a color screen, having more colors available means everything looks much less pixelated than the original now that anti-aliasing is an option. In summary, I would definitely recommend this watch to anyone. Whether it's your first smartwatch or you have another one with which you're growing dissatisfied, the Pebble won't disappoint. Feel free to comment if you have any questions - hopefully I'll have an answer.

    Pebble Time is Fine

    Posted .

    I own the Pebble, and now the Pebble Time through Kickstarter for about two weeks. I love it, use it for MapMyRun walking daily with the ability to voice reply (text conversion) to Messenger and texts while I am out. I switch music and monitor email, too. All with my phone in my pocket. The apps and watchfaces are plentiful and growing daily. Time Line keeps my calendar and appointments available with reminders. Plus I have gone 7 days on a charge, and that is while still tinkering and playing more so than I will be as I get everything set up (like one might expect), so more than a week will be my normal time between charges. Recharging takes less than two hours. It is waterproof! So I don't worry about sweat and rain, or even swimming with it on. There are more features than I will ever need, or use, so it is perfect for me. I have dressed it up with a bezel cover and clear lens protector, plus new watch band to match. And I can change it as I desire with alternate bezel skins since they peel off and watch bands that attach with standard 22mm pins (the installed band has a quick disconnect pin, too). The watchface color choices also can be set to match your bezel and band colors, too. I use my PebbleTime with an android phone, but it also works with iphones. It is light weight, and hardly noticeable to wear. The e-paper display stays on all the time, but a back light will show automatically in darker conditions to provide adequate viewing with a wrist flip or by installing the Backlight app like I have done and use. See my blog, updated daily at http://pebbleusers.blogspot.com/ for pictures and more details! I have no connection with Pebble other than as a customer and wearer of the watch, but I love it and the excellent customer support they provide. Which, for me, is a big plus! If there are ever problems you can count on them to be there for you. I look forward to the future smart watch bands, too. These devices will expand the functionality of the Pebble Time and provide future needs and purpose. News is forthcoming every day and this is what makes Pebble an exciting company and excellent watch choice.

    Great notifications watch for ios

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Better than the original pebble

    Posted .

    This is a fantastic watch with the applications I have running it lasts 3-4 days which was about the same battery power it used from my pebble and pebble steel. The timeline feature is one of the best improvements and is great it works with apps like ESPN and tells me when a game is coming on. New UI that is more fluid and candy to the eyes. The Pebble Time Steel is coming soon as well so keep an eye for that. The watch will take 22mm watch bands and the included have clips that let you remove the old band with ease.

    Best Smartwatch for the Cost

    |
    Posted .

    Being a current Pebble Watch owner, I was very excited to receive my Pebble Time watch. Pebble compliments the smartphone industry with a simple interface with multiple apps. I love the battery life and visibility in direct sunlight. I can't wait for the update to utilize the microphone. You won't be disappointed in the quality for the price.

    Great Smartwatch

    |
    Posted .

    I have an iPhone. I've seen the commercials about the Apple Smartwatch, but couldn't see myself paying $300-$400 for it. So, I decided to do some research. I looked up and read the reviews of a lot of smartwatches, and I came across this one. You can download apps and different watch faces. I can see who is calling and reply to text messages. The only thing I would change, is that it doesn't have a speaker, so you can't talk thru it, but it does have a microphone, so you can reply to text messages with your voice. Overall, it's a great watch and I'm glad I bought it.

    Fantastic All Around Smartwatch

    |
    Posted .

    Bought this after checking out my boyfriend's pebble time steel. I like the polycarbonate look, it's more geek chic and doesn't look like it's trying to be a mini smartphone. Tells me what I need to know and is insanely customizable. I get compliments on it all the time, and people are always amazed at how much it cost compared to other Smartwatch options.

    Pebble Satisfied

    I purchased a pebble and experienced some technical problems. I bought the product several times and received excellent customer service, along with a replacement. I appreciated the lack of difficulty often experienced when returning a product.

    My first smart watch

    |
    Posted .

    This is my first smart watch. The setup with my iPhone was very easy. It has great apps and watch faces that are very useful. For everything thing this watch can do it is amazing how long the battery lasts. My only complaint is the watch band is too short. It is tough to get it to fit using the very last hole and when I ware it the little bit of the band that is left over sticks out and snags everything. I have looked online and cannot find any replacement bands so I will be returning the watch for a refund while I still can.

    Great smart watch!

    I bought this for my son. It works great! It's water proof with a long lasting battery! The battery lasts for about 8 days depending on the use. It's not touch screen but it a good thing. No accidental bumps in class that would get him in trouble. I suggest a cover and screen protector that you can customize for $12.

    Huge improvement over the 1st Gen

    Posted .

    Pebble really got it right this time. I had the 1st Gen and loved it but it had it's downfalls. Very quirky software, etc. When it stopped working I went to the Moto 360 for an "upgrade". The watch was great but had horrible times connecting and the back cracking wasn't great either. The biggest reason I went back to Pebble was the fact that I can swim with it, shower with it, sleep with it, not worry about taking it off except to charge it every 5 days. The software on the Pebble Time is on-point. They did a great job. Pebble Health is great although I think the sleep tracking could be a little better. This watch just does what I need it to do and the voice dictation reply to messages is a huge plus. Go ahead and give Pebble a try if you haven't before. You won't be disappointed.

    better smartwatch than I expected

    Posted .

    I was 50/50 deciding to spend to try this smartwatch and am glad that I did cause it was better than any other watch I have tried before. I love the battery usage, notification, health fitness, water resistant and other features like alarm, quiet time as well as changing face watch. The only con is that I cannot reply from my carrier but other than that it is alright for the price that cannot missed.

    Not water resistant, battery life poor

    Posted .

    Went swimming with my grand daughter in 4 feet or less. Water in the watch. Never jumped in, no diving, just gentle immersion in shallow water. Had it about a week, charged 5 times. On one occasion, it went from full charge to totally dead in less than 32 hours. Published ratings are 98.4 feet water resistant and 168 hours battery life. It came nowhere close to these specs. Two thumbs down! They are getting it back. But besides the above, it worked great while it lasted.

    Like it better than a fitbit or MS Band

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Just Smart Enough...

    |
    Posted .

    Upgrading from the original pebble to the Apple Watch seemed like a no brainer for someone with an iPhone. However after lookin at the 18hr battery life and overall higher price, I decided to go with the pebble time. I realize that it may not be as "integrated into iOS" as an Apple Watch, but the pebble time does everything a smart watch should do. Notifications, check. Caller id, check. Playback controls, check. It does what I want a smart watch to do, which is to complement my phone and allow me to decide whether or not I need to answer that call, respond to that text/email ect. I don't want the watch to replace my phone, I just want it to allow me to sit through a meeting/dinner/family time without having to constantly check my phone whenever it goes off. Add to this the ecosystem that pebble has with its developers and you have a unique, feature full device that isn't afraid to work with both iOS and android divides.

    Excellent start for a smart watch

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Excellent watch, and will get even better!

    Posted .

    I have had my pebble time for 3 weeks. It takes a bit of time to learn everything. I am using it with Iphone. First off all Pebble devices get better with time. They are a great company that listens to its customers and always improves on its products and gives updates to the software. I love this watch! It is everything I wanted. It looks and feels great on my wrist. Very sleek. I can see texts and incoming calls on the watch and don't have to dig for my phone. You can get a number of other notifications on the watch too which is great! Just about any notification you get on your phone you will get on the watch. I love being able to control the volume of my music on my phone from the watch and skip forward or backward songs from the watch. I love being able to wear my Bluetooth headphones and control my music and volume from the watch too. There are a lot of apps that you can use with the watch too. Sync with a health tracker apps on your phone, control your thermostat in combo with a phone app, many many other things. I love the ability to switch watchfaces in the blink of an eye. Many customizable faces available on the app and through the web. View weather and temp on the watch face too! Lots of third party watch bands and face skins available to customize it all your own. It takes a 22mm watch band so you can essentially swap it out with anyone you find in a store. Pebble Time with Iphones are missing a few things due to Apples strict software guidelines. As of 6/22/15 Pebble Time for Iphone cannot reply to texts with pre set messages from the watch. It cannot reply to texts with voice replys, and cannot show album artwork on the watch of your music. Pebble is working with Apple to allow these features in the future and update the watches that currently cannot do those things. UNDERSTAND that this is an e-paper display. It looks great in sunlight, outside, or in high light areas and the colors are full. In the shade or at night it can look a little hard to read and colors kinda faded looking. Thats the nature of e-paper displays. If you can understand that you will understand when you see it and won't be disappointed. The ads and pics Pebble takes of the watch are always in high light areas to make it look great. The backlight is good, but doesn't stay on long enough (another update they are working on to increase that time) The watch has a light sensor in it to determine if the back light needs to be on or not when buttons are pushed. The one thing I also thought was poopy is the watch was said to have a 5-7 day battery life. It can but it depends on what apps you are running, the watch face if it has seconds showing, weather, temps, etc. How often you use the back light, scroll through the options etc, etc. I am finding mine to last 4-5 days before I absolutely must charge it again. Something I have no problem doing. It takes about 1.5 hours to charge from a 10% battery. No biggie to me expecially if I charge at night. Overall if you can get past its quirks and feature lacks due to Apples rules at this time it is a fantastic watch! I am very happy with mine.

    Does what you really need

    |
    Posted .

    When my old Timex broke down, I bought a Pebble Steel on clearance as a replacement. I have had it for 6 months now and have found it to be very useful. So much so, that for Christmas I bought Pebble Times for my father, mother-in-law and father-in-law. I bought all three for less than the price of an Apple Watch. The best things about the Pebbles are: 1. They are very good at being a watch. You can get a watch face that is easy to read. It's always on, and the backlight is good. 2. The battery lasts long enough that it's not annoying. 5-7 days on a charge is doable. 3. The notifications are excellent. Your wrist is very sensitive compared to other places where you might carry a phone. I miss fewer meetings, calls and texts compared to just carrying a phone. 4. Surprisingly, the vibrating alarm is one of the most useful features. It's native to the watch, and not dependent on the phone. It's darned near impossible to sleep through, it doesn't wake my wife like my other alarms did, and it easily lets me set different weekday, weekend and individual alarms. 5. There are good watch faces that show the weather. I have found this to be more convenient than checking my phone, unless I need detailed information. 6. My phone battery lasts significantly longer. I don't have to power up the screen on the phone nearly as much. 7. Golf app. I was able to download a golf app. The watch lets you see yardages easily and discreetly. 8. The only real downside I see is that the menus can be hard to read as you become more nearsighted. I do not use the step counter, or the sleep function. I can't wear any watch when I play soccer, which is where most of my cardio comes from, and I find sleep tracking to be of dubious use. I do not miss a heart rate monitor, because I have not seen one that is very accurate during excercise. I track my heart rate taking my pulse while looking at my pebble with a second hand face.
