One of my gifts for Christmas was a Pebble “classic” smart watch. I’ve wanted one for a while because the idea of smart watches and other wearable computing devices is interesting to me, but having never had any experience with one, it was hard for me to determine if I’d actually like it. The Pebble Classic is cheap enough ($109 here in Canada, generally) that it’s worth the risk. I’ve had my Pebble for a little over a week now and here are my thoughts.
The million dollar questions is why would anyone need yet another device to tell them when they have an email or a text message? It’s a good question and part of the reason why I was not 100% sold on the idea, but here’s what I thought the advantages would be and so far it has worked out as I expected.
