Well fellow Pebblers I’ve bitten the bullet and moved on to the Apple Watch. The reasons are:
- The Pebble technology will eventually be disconnected and is no longer supported and
- Not at all thrilled with the new Fitbit Ionic’s lack of certain functionality and ridiculous price of $299.
Now let me share with you why I’m so thrilled with the Apple watch. I picked up a used Apple Watch Series 2 for a bargain since the new one came out. As I write this I am on my “3rd” day of battery life with the Apple Watch (Yes, 3rd day and I still have 45% left). The connectivity with my Iphone is amazing and I have all the functionalities of the Pebble Time with so much better (Emails, Messages, Phone calls, etc…). The Apple watch also has SIRI so I can set timers, reminders, etc… with it. The Apple Watch has a great microphone and speaker which works much better than the Pebble. It is also waterproof like the Pebble. I don’t play music and stuff like that which might be the reason for the longer battery life. Apple does not have the plethora of Watch Faces like Pebble but if you’re looking for something to get your emails, Messages, Phone calls, etc… I would strongly recommend it. I’m sorry to say goodbye to my Pebble Time but its time to move on to new technology and keep up with the times. If you have any questions, hit me up.
