Missing my Apple Watch… 

In a sleep-deprived flurry of OMG this morning, I somehow left home without my Apple Watch. I know, right? Talk about a First World Problem. Actually, someone did: https://twitter.com/KatieDa81729922/status/825990887775797248 Anyway, as I waited for my DLR into town, I realised it was too late to go home to get it and hopped on the train ...

Sad to see Pebble go

I only caught up on this news last night. It seems Pebble, maker of the super-useful and low-cost smart-watches, is gone. It's been bought by Fitbit and will no longer sell its watches. Although I'm an Apple Watch user, I've owned a Pebble in the past. I loved it - the battery lasted for days ...

24 hours with the Pebble

If you're short on time, here's the skinny: the Pebble is a great little smart watch. My Pebble arrived courtesy of Amazon Primes yesterday afternoon. I was too busy setting up my new home office and dealing with self-assembling furniture (yes, all this after running the Royal Parks half-marathon - I'm obviously some kind of ...

Evernote on your wrist?

Pebble’s announcement of an Evernote app for their smart watch has piqued my interest. I think Pebble is the standout winner (so far) in the battle of the smart watches, due to a combination of usability and battery life. Cost is obviously a factor too. Now they’ve opened an app store and one of the biggest names to announce an ...
