I never wore SmartWatch Pebble for a long period of time before. In fact, I never really wore modern SmartWatch over a long period of time, either. So when my colleague Drew Olanoff asked me to give just a pebble around a whirlpool, of course, I was skeptical of my need for SmartWatch.

pebble hours were some of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of all time, the original Pebble raising more than $ 10 million and rising time Pebble impressive $ 20 million in Kickstarter campaign. Pebble Round Time starts at $ 249

For testing purposes, I was wearing $ 299, 20 mm strip version with a black stripe and black bezel. I tried at Pebble Pebble regular time and for a few minutes before slapping on the time of the round, and it’s really much more comfortable watch. In fact, it’s actually feels as a real clock. And that was really the theme of a few days I wear time around.

And this is what you would expect from a watch: time will tell. In fact, that is why I primarily with Time round. I had forgotten how well it’s just watch the time on your wrist, compared to pulling my phone out of your pocket every time I wanted to check the time. I usually have a pretty good sense of time, but it certainly is in fact the whole process has been helpful.

So let’s talk about the design for a bit. This light – very easy, in fact – and almost forgotten in times when I wore it on my wrist. I felt that it was pretty good, because the last thing I wanted was to escape on my wrist, and I would take a meeting or trying to enter the keyboard. The clock face has a bit of a good shine to it, and it feels like a premium product, although, of course, this is not Omega or Tag Heuer.

Group convenient, though it took a bit of wrangling initially. I wore a leather strip on the clock, and it basically helps the entire clock be forgotten on my wrist. Again, it was pretty important to me, and I think that this contributes to the overall relatively minimalist packaging time round compared to the original time and Pebble.

Battery life was decent – a few days I used it, I just difficult to charge it again and I was able to do it at work, without having to take the watch at night during sleep. It turned out again to be comfortable enough to basically do not notice while you sleep. There’s a big opportunity for the tracker sleep here, I think, and it was the app on the app store Pebble time – although I have not tried this review

    Moto 360 against Pebble Round Time

alert have been useful, though not quite the game changes. But I keep working iPhone 6 plus in my bag, as a rule, and it was very helpful to get notified as those from sagging when editors or other authors have tried to get my attention. The screen looks good, and while I found myself trying to hit a few times, I got used to the navigation for hours in a day or so. It’s a bit counter-intuitive at first, but it’s easy to get the hang of it.

Selecting an application is still limited – I could not find the name-brand activity tracker as inconsistency, but it is almost certain that these programs will be transferred to the time of the round. These applications exist at Pebble and Pebble time, but those that are built for square screen – so they need to be rebuilt for a round screen, and it does not guarantee that they will be transferred. It’s a bit lazy because SmartWatch I was hoping to get your hands higher activity tracker than just a step counter in my phone. I check my work pretty religiously.

However, there are some interesting applications, and they show the potential of the device, such as a round. Uber app is quite novel – you can call the machine from your watch – and while I do not use an account Swarm, it does seem that the application makes an interesting job location unlocking drive activity. Ability to change the time the person was definitely a nice touch, though I found that the stock face really was all that was needed. It is well-designed, minimalist and feels like all other hours.

There was one case I found useful: navigation music, and my phone was in my bag. I tend to wear Bluetooth Headphones walking around the city, and I have a lawsuit Apple Music on my work iPhone. Music navigation was very useful, because it meant not having to carry around a 6 Plus is iPhone in my pocket, which can be quite uncomfortable. I think that shows the potential of something like time round -. This makes it possible, in particular, for people with more phones that do not have to deal with the hassle of having these phones in the immediate grabbable distance

These are all important counterpoint to Apple, Watch. To me, it seems that the round is not trying to do it all. It’s just trying to be a clock with some extra oomph in his intestines, and he does it very well. It has a longer battery life and do not need to be charged, feels good and smooth. In fact, CEO Eric Migicovsky said that Apple Watch do not have a “significant impact” on sale at his watch in an interview with CNBC.

In general, there is not much to say except that it’s a good Watch with some additional features on top. I spoke with CEO Eric Migicovsky a couple of times on Pebble and got the feeling that the device is, in fact, intended to be the first and the clock has a mind under the hood. I think that is something that serves to do was to start, but I have not found all the life, the mind-blowingly different wearing time around instead of a normal clock. In the end, it felt a bit strange to take the watch off.

However, it may still be good, that is, and if you’re not interested in power SmartWatch Watch as an apple or something is powered by Android wear, it can be hours to review.
