With my annual trip over to the Gadget Show Live, this year I picked myself up a Pebble Watch. With the imminent release of the Apple Watch at the time I was curious if a Smart Watch had a place in my life, but the price tag of £299 GBP was more than I was prepared to spend on a effectively what would be a trail.
As is plainly evident from this blog my watch of choice is a G-Shock, so moving to a delicate Smart Watch is a big move.
The deal on the Pebble Watch was great with a show special of £80 so I jumped on the Smart Watch ship.

At this point I have had very little use / experience with the watch so I am going to hold off on any sort of actual review until I have had a lot more use with it. Although I think it is important to point out that for the price is is very capable :
There are so many watch faces to choose from you will absolutely find one that suits you.
The Apps are amazing and it is so much more versatile than I had initially imagined.
It links seamlessly with your phone (for me that is currently an iPhone).
If you use a GoPro it works as a remote – Genius!
it has a degree of waterproofing so it won’t crap out if you go swimming or forget to take it off before a shower.
The battery lasts around a week.
It charges quickly.
The display is so easily read and is backlit.
I’m sure there is a lot more and I will look at the watch more closely in the future. My better half has purchased herself an Apple Watch so I will also be able to do a little of comparison to see if the Apple Premium is worth paying.
