Hands-on with the Pebble e-paper watch (gallery)

Summary: I backed this Kickstarter project and selected an orange model. Since colored ones are not yet ready and I am not sure I would wear it daily, I switched to black and received it yesterday.

  • Hoping Pebble will get more functionality soon

    I've had my black one for a few weeks now. One of the things that appealed to me about it was that it was a lot thinner than other smart watches. That said, it is still rather large on my (female) wrist. I like to be able to glance at it, but there are a couple of things it still needs, possibly introduced via the other apps now available on Google Play. Battery status, more customizable vibration patterns, and some handling when more than one notice is quicly delivered to the device. I'm still playing with the other apps, so we'll see how it goes.
  • Pebble-looks more like a Casio.

    I have an old Casio Calculator watch that has the same band on it. I think I'll wait for a more functional watch from a third party. The reviews I've seen are not really favorable.
