    • a thriving apps store that adds much to the watch, a great amount of built-in functionality, a long-lasting battery life, and an amazingly cool e-paper display that works really well in sunlight
    • I've actually thought I lost my pebble on occasion, when wearing long sleeves; nope, just hiding under the sleeve
    • but I find myself missing my Pebble quite often and have even tossed around the idea of getting the Pebble Steel
    • a thriving apps store that adds much to the watch, a great amount of built-in functionality, a long-lasting battery life, and an amazingly cool e-paper display that works really well in sunlight
    • Is there any new major smart watch that is compelling enough to buy and use instead of Pebble? and 2) If I lost my Pebble would I buy another Pebble or perhaps something more "current"?Answer to 1

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • I like having my phone on mute, but sometimes I don't hear/feel the vibrate feature
    • I purchased this because I wanted to take tentative steps into the world of Smartwatches, but didn't want a lot of unnecessary features or a big price tag.
    • I also hv am iPhone 6+ and I'm limited as to what I can do

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • I loved the watch initially, but after less than a year the vibration function no longer works and the battery does not even last a day
    • vibration for alarm and notification stopped working at 1 month
    • I never wake up when any watch makes an audible alarm but the vibrate alarm works every time!The apps I tried of far work great
    • Last thing I have to say is the vibration on the watch works great with alarms
    • this watch was good until it randomly stopped working, charging stopped working, clock slowed down, screen froze and got scratchy.

    • Great price and works as described with several configurations for background screen
    • but hey is better than paying a ridiculous price for i watch
    • For a Pebble, great Price and a Smartwatch.....well that = 5-Star to Me

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • The only down side to me is that it is not the best looking watch out there.
    • I ordered it back in October, and about 2 months ago the screen started to get scrambled looking and has only gotten worse
    • The watch itself is pretty good looking, the feel is great, the weight is great, the size is great... the software... and the screen
    • This Pebble is not a fancy looking watch but it is reasonably attractive
    • and it's simple enough for me to fool around looking for simple tasks and simple solutions

    • Great product, just a little difficult to see the screen.
    • Its simple to operate and a great product for the money
    • Overall, the Pebble is a fantastic product and I cannot recommend it enough
    • : it is relatively inexpensive and it is a great product

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • I love it the only bad thing is it don't hold charge long
    • I can't say enough good things about this watch and the company that makes it.
    • The watch had scratches on the back, the entire thing was dusty/dirty in all the corners, the screen had a small bit of what looked like sticker glue, and the watch was already programmed to someone else's IP.WHAT
    • Another great thing about the hepatic feedback is using it as an alarm
    • The best thing for me is that I can put my phone in my pocket and not have to obsessively check it

  • Reviews around notification (3.38 of 5)

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • If you are like me and get a ton of email, disable notifications for email
    • NOW I get vibrating notification whenever there's an email, IM or even Facebook.
    • Many, many other notifications are real nice to have on your wrist
    • It has been invaluable for vibrate notifications when I'm busy with my hands doing other things, so I don't have to dig into my coat pocket, jeans or purse for my phone just to see if it's an important call, email, text or calendar reminder
    • and then some (getting text/email/social media notifications is really nice).**UPDATE**April

    • I use the misfit app for walking and sleep tracking and it's pretty accurate for me
    • Pebble apps are available for just about anything on the Pebble app
    • My most used apps so far are Misfit (an app kind of like the Fitbit)
    • This is a good watch that has some cool apps and watch faces

    • The screen had no scratches when I received it, BUT be careful, the entire front is like a phone screen so it can be prone to scratches (this is no G-Shock ladies and gentlemen)
    • Everything worked as it should, what I was really amazed by, was the extended battery life, which lasted about a week with a full charged

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • Only downside is it will occasionally lose connection with my phone overnight (maybe once a week) and require reconnection, which only takes a minute
    • On occasion it will lose connection with phone but repairs itself again when in range.
    • But then it'll simply lose the connection again, even when the phone and watch have not been separated
    • a thriving apps store that adds much to the watch, a great amount of built-in functionality, a long-lasting battery life, and an amazingly cool e-paper display that works really well in sunlight
    • Easy readable e-ink screen under sunlight, long battery life (with the high amount of notification I get, battery runs 3 days - fair enough), light weight, water resistance, good size on small Asian lady hand

  • Reviews around issue (2.45 of 5)

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • I have an iPhone and had no issues with connecting, everything works and it all operates though Bluetooth
    • Also, the lack of microphone is a huge issue, though to be fair, I'm not aware of other watches with microphones when this was originally released
    • We will say that's a Misfit issue and not a Pebble issue though
    • It’s excellent watch it works fine no issue and the battery last for days
    • The only big issue I've really had is that it slows my phone down having to be connected via Bluetooth all the time, but honestly I'd expect that with any watch.

    • No fancy display, but the black and white display is easily read in the dark and light
    • On the plus side, the display was easy to read and having the backlight come on with a flick of the wrist was super-handy.
    • Display is very easy to read, inside or outside in the sun
    • Every once in a while, the display will be scrambled until I hit the up or down button for time.

    • The e-reader like screen initially delivers good battery life (up to 3-4 days), but the battery deteriorates quickly and the charger is just inexcusably awful, with the magnetic connection coming undone with the slightest touch
    • Now, even when it’s working (which never lasts more than a few minutes), the image is corrupted and missing pixels
    • Easy readable e-ink screen under sunlight, long battery life (with the high amount of notification I get, battery runs 3 days - fair enough), light weight, water resistance, good size on small Asian lady hand
    • Additionally, when the Pebble was offered on Kickstarter, the manufacturers bragged that it would have a great e-paper screen, using the technology seen on Amazon’s Kindle and other e-readers

    • then the screen started to dim and I constantly had to restart it
    • Seller has no return policy and my watch has a defective screen

    • Would be 5 stars except it broke by itself within about 3 weeks
    • It take them 2 to 3 weeks to answere your email every time you sent and respond.. do not even deserve 1 star my never worked and no one could give me answere on where to sent it for repair
    • Everything worked as it should, what I was really amazed by, was the extended battery life, which lasted about a week with a full charged
    • and I'm impressed with the clarity of the display (think Of what an HD Gameboy might look like), as well as he sheer variety of add on apps that are available
    • My only real complaint (which is knocking off 1 star) is how it charges

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • buttons get pressed when i lean my wrist back too far but thats a given.
    • Simple navigation, easily viewable in light/sunlight and the ambient light sensor knows when to turn the backlight on, as to not waste battery when you shake your wrist any given time of the day
    • Screen lights up for 1.5-2 seconds by pressing a button or shaking your wrist
    • When my phone is on silent my wrist vibrating always gets my attention when my phone vibrating in my pocket didn't
    • Visibility very good both day and night (shake your wrist in low light levels to activate the backlight... genius!)

    Pebble Smartwatch Black

    • Plus the Pebble watch is water proof in fresh and salt water, I couldn't even shower with my dumb Fitbit
    • Too bad Fitbit bought them and are subsequently killing the backend servers summer of 2018
    • Doesn't like Fitbit can download all data into phone software build up a fitness data bank
    • Love these watches - to bad Fitbit bought the company and is trying to slowly break them in "updates" we lost the best smartwatch on the market.
