    Default Who's buying a Pebble after today's event?

    I know I am, just ordered an orange one. Free 5-7 day global shipping helped sweeten it that little more!

    I held off until now, because I just couldn't see how it was going to be a great experience with an iPhone. Now, that *should* all change. We'll soon see!

    What did you get?

    I was going to buy one a couple weeks ago, but decided to hold off and see what Apple's October event turned out to be like. I'm about 90% on board with buying one now! I just don't want to buy something that's over half a year old.

    It's OK...the embargo lifted in the end before the 'event' even began ;-)

    I may get one.

    I had purchased one a few months ago but returned it because I had too many issues with it. The big one was that the sound quality of my car's built-in bluetooth was horrible when the watch was on me. Almost like the bluetooth from the watch interfered with it.

    Additionally, the watch would show a call was connected when I received a call and then would not show disconnected once a hung up. I would then have to "hang up" the call from the watch to get the watch screen back which isn't a major issue in and of itself, but I would also stop receiving notifications after that unless I turned the bluetooth off and back on.

    Maybe I just had a defective unit.

    Hopefully with the software update these issues aren't present. If not, I'll definitely give it another try.

    Although I love tech gadgets, I'll pass on the pebble. After the initial "new toy" phase wears off, I doubt I'd be using it much, if at all.

    I thought that also... I LOVE my pebble now. I broke my original one last week and had to go get it replaced the same day.

    I have one that I bought off of Kickstarter. Tried it out, decided it wasn't for me, and have just been procrastinating selling it. Look for a WTS post from me soon.

    Got one a while ago and love it. Does everything it's supposed to and also alerts me for BBM. No complaints here.

    I already own a black one. It's all scratched up. Be careful with it. They say scratch resistant, but reality is our hands tear up watches.

    Colors are black, orange, red, white and gray. Should work with iPhone 4, as it requires Bluetooth 2.1 which the 4 has. However, to get 4.0 LE, you'll need a 4S or newer.

    Default Re: Who's buying a Pebble after today's event?

    I have been on the fence about buying one since I saw the kickstarter campaign forever ago. On one hand I think its super cool to be able to see notifications on my wrist, on the other hand I just don't know if I need or would use it enough it to justify the $150. I am trying to hold out for a Google or Apple smart watch, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
