Pebble 2 + Heart Rate review


The Pebble 2 + HR is inaccurate, outdated, and completely outclassed by other fitness bands and smartwatches.

Pebble 2 review: An affordable smartwatch with a fitness bent


The Pebble 2 is a basic smartwatch that brings some improved fitness features over its predecessor. The black-and-white screen and plastic housing won't win any design awards, but a built-in heart rate monitor gives and water-resistant body lend it...

Long battery life ; Water resistant ; Heart rate monitor ; Affordable ; Improved health app

Dated design ; No GPS

Even though Pebble already offered support for several popular health apps, the Pebble 2 is the company's first genuine attempt to make a more fitness-friendly device. The ability to track your heart rate, plus the addition of Pebble's new Health app,...

Pebble 2 + Heart Rate


The Pebble 2 + Heart Rate is a very good smartwatch, but its fitness-tracking features could stand to be improved.

Excellent battery life. Always-on display. Solid voice-to-text functionality. Android and iOS compatible. Instant notifications. Lots of apps. Comfortable.

Inconsistent heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking in testing.

Comparisons and Conclusions With an update to fine-tune its fitness-tracking capabilities, the Pebble 2 + Heart Rate has the potential to win over smartwatch fans with an interest in fitness, and vice versa. As it stands, however, its fitness...

Pebble 2 review: still more smartwatch than health tracker


Pebble is the indie band of smartwatches. Ever since the startup company of the same name launched its record-breaking Kickstarter campaign four years ago, it has attracted an enthusiastic fan base...

Accessible price ; Works with both iOS and Android ; Long battery life ; Encouraging activity notifications

Unsophisticated looks ; Inaccurate heart rate tracking ; Not a good workout watch ; Limited voice control

Pebble 2 struggles to keep up with the pack as a fitness watch


Long battery, water resistance and a low price. Just keep your fitness-tracking expectations to the basics.

Affordably priced. Five-day battery life. Swim and shower-proof to 30 meters. Always-on display. Improved software makes glancing at quick notifications easier. Built-in microphone for quick text message responses. Works with Android or iOS.

Baked-in fitness tracking is uneven, especially heart rate and workout tracking. Plastic design. Small black and white screen is sometimes hard to read. Pebble's apps and watch face options are often ugly.

The Pebble 2 doesn't win on fitness tracking, but it's still a solid pick for simple notifications and messages on a long-battery budget smartwatch.

Pebble 2 + HR Review: Better Smartwatch Than Fitness Tracker


While the Pebble 2 + Heart Rate adds a new dimension in fitness to Pebble's smartwatch lineup, the device is a smartwatch first, and its limited fitness features feel like an afterthought.

E-paper display easy to view ; Lots of notification options ; Audio controls for paired devices

Only one size ; Some notifications delayed ; Limited activity-monitoring features

The Pebble 2 + Heart Rate is a great low-cost alternative to other smartwatches, but the fitness-tracking features are fairly limited.

Pebble 2 reviewed: Proof that a heart rate monitor doesn’t make a fitness tracker


$130 may get you a HRM, but that doesn't mean it's a serious fitness device.

Pleasant and comfortable throwback design. ; Clear, bold, and backlit display. ; Accurate heart rate monitor. ; Peaking notifications preview what's next on your Timeline so you don't have to manually look. ; Great battery life.

Tracking exercise on the watch only shows you heart rate and duration. ; You need to manually dismiss notifications to see your watch face again. ; Voice recognition isn't very accurate. ; Third-party apps are a mixed bag.

What makes Pebble watches unique in a world where Apple, Google, Fitbit, and others all make similar devices is the interface. The Pebble 2 is a great watch because its hardware doesn't get in the way of telling time, and it clearly and simply helps...

Pebble 2


The original Pebble was the darling of crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, and helped springboard a whole new market for ‘smartwatches'.

Pebble 2 review


The very slight upgrade to the Pebble Classic

Low price ; Excellent battery ; Fun interface

Too simplistic ; No GPS ; Plastic design

A neat watch from Pebble, but we expected more of an upgrade. If you're into notifications and some simple apps you'll enjoy this watch, and especially the price, but ultimately it feels like a very minor refresh of the first Pebble.
