    Default Pebble or wait for iwatch

    Hey Guys
    Need a small help from all of you. I am having iphone 5 running iOS 7 and looking for smartwatch. I really like Pebble a lot. My question is should I wait for I watch to launch or can I buy pebble

    Is pebble worthy enough to work with iPhone 5. I need to order one from best buy Canada which will take 2 months time to reach me as I am currently in South Africa. Will I watch be launched during that 2 months or should I go with pebble

    Thanks

    My initial advice would be to go with what is currently available - The Pebble Watch. We have no idea when or if Apple will introduce an "iWatch".

    Ya, the iWatch at this point is a myth. It may prove otherwise later but if you really want a smartwatch now grab yourself a Pebble. Android Central recently did a great write up on the Pebble which includes comments from one of our iMore writers as well, you might like to read it - Roundtable: Pebble Smartwatch | Android Central

    I had an AT&T gift card that I needed to spend. So I sprang for a Pebble. I highly recommend it! Will definitely tie me over until an iWatch, or something wearable that is Apple made, is released.

    I had a pebble for about 2 days and just didnt find it reliable enough. Then again, they released the software upgrade that enables all notifications in iOS7 just a few days after I returned it, so it might be better now. Im waiting on better offerings for now.

    Love mine. Works great especially when you don't want to or can't grab your phone.

    Finally ordered mine on Black Friday. As I live outside of the US, that discount and free shipping was too hard to resist. Waiting for it to deliver.

    I'd take the Pebble for now as we're not 100% sure an "iWatch" will see the light of day

    If Samsung made a smart watch, Apple is likely to follow. But that's just my opinion.

    Amazon and BestBuy have them on sale for $119. Just checked for availabilty and all Bestbuy in my area have them in stock. The $119 is the lowest price I've seen. Has anyone else seen a lower price?

    Download the one by the pebble people. It's free. Also download my pebble faces. Also free and you can get a ton of diff faces. I paid for smart watch + but found it unreliable.

    I'm feeling the same way as alot of others here.

    I was, yes foolishly, hoping for an iwatch to be announced at wwdc. Maybe it was eluded to, with the HealthBook and increased integration across apps, etc. I said to myself that if I was still left unsure if the iWatch is more than a rumor, I would buy a Pebble; but the only thing stopping me from getting one was the lack of Endomondo support. Now, Endomondo supports the Pebble. So it's becoming a little bit clearer as to which way I'm going to go, but I'm still a little reluctant to pull the trigger on a Pebble.
    No one cares what phones/computers/tablets you are using, or in which order you got them.... so stop listing.
