Watch Pebble has done much virtual ink for a year. The project, set in motion on the Kickstarter funding popular site, had managed to harvest about 10.5 million U.S. dollars. A record.
Actually, this connected object so aroused the interest of the public that giants like Apple, Microsoft and Samsung preparing, too, a smart watch for soon.
What Is The Pebble?
It is a watch with a screen at electronic ink (eInk), similar to the screen of the electronic readers Kindle or Kobo. This type of screen is easy to read, even in the Sun. It can also be backlit with a press of a button or, better, a dry flick of the wrist.
The Pebble can display a text message received on your mobile phone, control the music playing on your phone or tablet, display the phone number, when you receive a call, in addition to allowing you to accept or reject the call by pressing a button and more.
But what’s great is that the small watch can VIBRATE when you receive a notice. Finishes, the calls or texting missed because your device was at the bottom of your pocket or purse, because the music was too loud, or because the aircraft was on vibration and you were a bit too far for you realize!
The Forces Of The Pebble
It is combined with an Android or iOS device, the Pebble allows you to avoid having to get out your your handheld device (and remove your gloves to-30 winter, to use it). This further reduces interruptions during other activities, since you don’t have to look at your watch on your wrist. The Pebble is also resistant to water. It is certified ‘5ATM’ (or IPx5), allowing you to use it in the rain, in the pool or even washing the dishes! The charging cable is magnetic, in order to avoid that water seeps through an opening.
You can change the time display downloading watch dials (called “watchfaces”). The watch comes with at least 5 different dials, but the mypebblefaces.com site will allow you to discover more than 400 new.
However, this operation does not work in all Web browsers:
-On Android, make sure you use the Google Chrome browser.
-On iOS, you will need to go through Safari and use the option “open in”Pebble”.
For the more started, know it is also possible to use services online as “IFTTT” (for “If This, then That”) which can, for example, send us a text message when a condition is met. For example: receiving the weather every day, at 7:00 in the morning… receive the score in real time for your team favorite and more.
The Weaknesses Of The Pebble
The biggest weakness of the Pebble, it’s his pairing with an iOS device, because this OS is much firmer than Android. We must therefore wait for a update to get, maybe, some features, while on Android, the experience is much more fluid. The Pebble offers little storage space. A limit of 11 dials or applications is really restrictive, especially when trying to watch for the first time and trying to find dials that suit us, because we might want to retain some temporarily to impress his friends – with the dial Space Invaders or Super Mario, for example…
Finally, don’t forget that Bluetooth must remain active so that the watch receives and displays notices of calls or messages, which drain the battery of your phone or Tablet faster.
Watch Pebble is a really practical object, despite its limitations and faults. Fewer calls and texting are missed, thanks to its vibration mode. The watch allows better management of interruptions during calls or text messages received, as a simple glance at the watch enough.
A purchase recommended, especially if you like to discover new features, even tweak a little.
Remember, however, that current players should present their own model of connected watch before long and these models could provide features not present on the Pebble (touchscreen, better connectivity with iOS…).
It is possible to pre-order your rubber watch via the centralledwatch site for $150 us know however that there is however a delay of a few weeks in the production of color models (in short, all models, except the black).
