Pebble Time review

 

The Pebble Time is waterproof, has a sun-friendly screen, and sports 4-day battery life, but it cannot compete with Android Wear and Apple Watch.

Pebble is the grandfather of the modern smartwatch, and it’s starting to spout gray hairs. Long battery life, water resistance, and a display that you can read in the sunlight may be have been great selling points years ago, but Android Wear and the...

Pebble Time review: an underdog among smartwatches

 

Pebble needs to distinguish itself from its Android Wear and Apple rivals in order to stand out, and it does so with the Time. Its color e-paper technology results in an always-on display that looks great under bright sunlight, plus battery life that...

Impressive battery life ; Works on both Android and iOS ; Always-on color e-paperdisplay ; Display looks great under direct sunlight ; Large app library ; Unique Timeline interface reduces app clutter ; Voice replies ; Potential for more features via...

iOS functionality is limited ; Voice function doesn't extend to Google Now or Siri ; Can only choose one app for activity tracking ; Pricey for what it offers

No, the Pebble Time won't win any fashion contests with its toy-like design and cutesy animations. And no, it won't win over those who yearn for tons of high-end features in their wearables. But if your idea of a smartwatch is that it should be more of...

Pebble Time

 

The Pebble Time brings a color display and a microphone to the company's winning formula, making it a solid choice for first-time smartwatch buyers.

Excellent battery life. Always-on color display. Voice-to-text functionality. Instantaneous notifications. Comfortable. Lots of apps. Syncs with Android or iOS.

App store needs curation. Little reason to upgrade.

Conclusions The Pebble Time is the Game Boy Color to the Pebble's original Game Boy, and that's great. It displays charming visuals in color, adds voice-to-text communication, and has all the things you expect a Pebble watch to have: instantaneous...

Pebble Time review: Can Pebble's latest watch do better than Apple's?

 

Scott Stein wore the Pebble Time for a week: here's his full review.

Always-on reflective color display; water resistant for showers or swimming; battery life lasts more than three days between charges; added storage holds dozens of apps and watch faces; works with iPhones and Android phones; most apps are free.

Display sometimes hard to read in dim light; fitness apps aren't as polished as on other premium smartwatches; apps and watch faces are plentiful but very mixed in quality; lack of touchscreen limits interactivity with some apps.

The Pebble Time adds a few key improvements and a color screen compared to previous Pebble watches, but owners of previous Pebble watches may not see a need to upgrade yet.

Pebble Time black

 

I've been wearing Pebble's latest, the Pebble Time, for a week. It lands in a world of Apple Watches and Google watches , and is finally being shipped to those who supported it on Kickstarter. For those who didn't, it'll cost $199 (UK and AU prices not...

Pebble Time review: the best Pebble smartwatch yet

 

It's 7:30PM on Thursday evening, and I'm more than half way through my train ride home from work. I glance at the Pebble Time on my wrist and hit a button to take a look at the battery meter....

Improved design ; Display is always on, visible outdoors ; Long battery life

Creaky hardware ; Limited iOS capabilities ; Limited voice control

Score a Pebble Time for $149.99 ($50 discount)

 

Both Amazon and the official Pebble site are now selling the Time for $50 off, making the final price a very convenient $149.99.

We are not sure when a similar deal will show up, so if you have been looking for a smartwatch with formidable battery life, you best take advantage of this offer. We also don’t know if this price cut is temporal or not, but I would assume it is. Who’s...

Pebble Time review: Can the Time withstand competition from Apple and Google?

 

When smartwatches were only a dream, Pebble came out of nowhere to introduce a watch that actually had a brain. And for the past few years, Pebble has quietly been the most well-rounded wearable company out there, offering a strong lineup of devices...

There are a lot of alternatives on the market, which means the $199 Pebble Time has more competition than ever before. But longtime Pebble fans will find that the Time is a great tool to get notifications, and that market-leading week-long battery...

Pebble Time review

 

The last year or so has seen an unprecedented amount of interest in wearables, and smartwatches in particular.

Always-on screen ; Excellent sunlight readability ; Industry-leading battery life ; Big software improvements over first-gen Pebble ; Timeline is a great way to navigate a smartwatch ; Some decent apps and watch faces

Feels cheaply made despite its $199 USD / $249 CAD price ; Lacks mainstream developer support compared to Apple and Google ; Poor contrast when displaying colour ; Low-resolution display ; Buttons feel low-tech compared to touch and Digital Crown

Pebble Time review: function over form

 

The new smartwatch from the company that pioneered the category is here – and it's not quite what we expected. Join us for Pocketnow's Pebble Time review!

So far, Pebble’s head start in the market and its savvy marketing have kept the company growing even in the face of some fierce competition. Pebble’s fanbase, plus the dollars of underdog-loving contrarians, will all but ensure the economic success of...
