I’m almost a week into using the Pebble and still finding it very useful.
The vibrating alarms are enough to wake me up in the morning and, from my perspective, are a much nicer way to wake up compared to the klaxon alarm on my iPhone.
Notifications from my iPhone arrive flawlessly and keep me up to date without having to haul my iPhone 6 Plus out of some pocket or other. The watch is really light and I don’t realise I’m wearing it until it vibrates.
In terms of apps, I’m using Swarm more than anything else and controlling my music and podcasts from the music player. I installed a Starbucks card app, which a) accurately updates the ‘stars’ I’ve collected with purchases but b) doesn’t register my card’s balance. So… not very useful.
I’m open to suggestions for other useful apps. It’s been a busy week, so I haven’t had a lot of time to research apps etc.
Only a couple of people have actually noticed I’m wearing it and it fits neatly under the cuffs of my shirts. Very glad I opted for the all-black version, as it doesn’t stand out and it slightly more subtle than the red…
I was getting worried that the battery was broken, but I’ve since realised that the battery lasts a hell of a lot longer when you leave the backlight off.
Anyway, one week in and I’m still a Pebble fan.
