    Currently useful. With updates could be more so., April 9, 2013
    Archimboldo (Athens, GA) –

    This review is from: Pebble E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Overall I’m happy with the product. I didn’t experience a battery problem as one other reviewer has. My complaints are fairly minor and fixable.

    The good points:

    1. You don’t have to reach into your pocket to see who is calling. That’s especially handy when you are sitting down in a meeting and your pockets are as full as mine. You have the option to send the call to voicemail from your watch if the call isn’t urgent.

    2. I find that I miss fewer calls in noisy environments since I can easily feel my watch vibrate.

    3. You can see text messages easily.

    4. It’s extensible. If you are so inclined, you can use the SDK to write your own watchface, though the iOS version isn’t out as of this writing. I thought I might add the moon sign to mine.

    There are a few things that need improvement. Some of these may change as they provide software updates:

    1. Setting alarms requires a bit too many button presses. In fairness, I’m not sure how you would fix this with the four buttons available. Maybe a double press or pressing two at once.
    2. You can’t set a timer yet.
    3. No battery indicator yet.

    I was a Kickstarter backer and was one of the first recipients of a Pebble. It took a couple of days to get working, (Never did get e-mail notifications to work) and then the Battery went dead on me. I tried everything on the troubleshooting list. Nothing worked. I emailed them and received an auto-response on the 27th of March. Since then nothing! I’m very disappointed.
    UPDATE: 10 April: It took tech support 9 days to auto-respond to my plea for help. Still no solution. UPDATE: 11 April: I got a tweet from @pebble saying they’ll look into it, But still no offer to help with the Battery Problem. UPDATE 24 April: Still no Help!

    Great smartwatch, July 16, 2013
    RFR “Raf” (Texas, USA) –

    This review is from: Pebble E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Notice: I bought it at Best Buy, left the same review there.

    Have had my pebble for just over one week. I will break up the review so it’s easier to follow and will update if anything changes for the better or worse.

    It’s a great smartwatch! I showed it to some of my geeky friends who criticized it for not doing more, but you have to understand what you’re buying. I’ve been keeping up with this phone for about a year so I knew what I was getting.

    First of all, this is a smart watch, not a smartphone replacement. It does the ‘watch’ job beautifully, with customizable watch faces (switching between watchfaces is as easy as pushing a button). Bluetooth connectivity is easy to setup, and I usually have had no problems keeping it connected to my phone. Waterproof (tested in the shower so far). Screen is easy to see, if it’s too dark (at night), a shake of your arm will temporarily turn on the back light. Currently use of the accelerometer and magnetometer is limited until the full SDK library/functionality is made available, and I’m looking forward to that. Notifications on your wrist is awesome (you can choose which apps to get notifications for with ‘pebble notify’).

    I got the black version from Best Buy (wife did as well). It’s pretty nice looking, not too big on our wrists (maybe a bit big for my wife, but not enough for her to care). There are good screen protectors available online, so we installed those (already cut to the shape of the watch) before we tested the manufacturer’s claim of “scratch resistant lens”. It’s very lightweight, which is a watch requirement for me. My wife changed the watch band on her watch while we were at Target with no issues. Buttons are initially hard to push, but once you break them in they work fine.

    Initially I only charged it for 15 minutes out of the box before I decided I had to play with it. It came partially charged from the factory, and the 15 minutes extra made the battery go for ~2 days. After that full charge, I went 8 days without having to charge again. No noticeable changes on my phone’s battery either for keeping the bluetooth on at all times (HTC One X, jelly bean).

    There are several cool apps (cooler ones to come once programmers can use the accelerometers). I used the watchface generator online (very easy to use) to create my own watchface with my university logo (great for bragging at work). It comes built in with an alarm, which I use, I also added on Glance (shows a count of unread SMS, email, missed calls, current weather), a monthly view calendar, a stopwatch (not sure why it wasn’t built in), pebble dialer (for enhanced call notification, accept/dismiss), and pebble tasker (read more below). It does also come built in with a music control app that works with several apps on your phone (pandora, google play music, etc), allowing you to skip, go back, pause/play. We also used runkeeper and it displayed the activity information on our watch automatically (pace, distance, time) without us having to look at the phone on our armband while jogging or puling the phone out of our wet-bag when we went kayaking. Other apps are out there, just look it up, but keep in mind that there is a limit of how many apps you can store on the watch at one time so choose wisely (built in ones + 8 downloadable? can’t remember exactly).
    Automation via Pebble Tasker:
    Some of the things I’ve been able to do with my watch via pebble tasker (and Tasker on the android side):
    1. Push a button to send myself an e-mail at work with current time and date when I walk in the gate.
    2. Push a button to request my phone to read the last text message on speakerphone (or bluetooth headset/car speakers) mainly for when I’m driving.
    3. Push a button to request a more detailed weather forecast for my current location to be sent to my watch
    4. Push a button to help find my phone by changing the phone ringer volume and playing an alarm.
    5. [Use your creativity for what you want/need…..]
