First off, I want to say that this is not a hate post. I am in no way dissing the watch and when the second generation comes out or if the first generation is still out by the end of next year I will probably buy it. Anyway, I just wanted to highlight some of the pros of the pebble smart watch that make it better for my personal needs right now. Firstly it has that always on display. I know this isn't a big deal for a lot of people and it wouldn't be that hard to raise my wrist to turn the screen on, but there's just something about the screen being always on that makes it more like a real watch that you can look at any time in any position. Secondly it is fully waterproof. Again it probably isn't that big of a deal for most people to have to take their watch off in the shower or in the pool or at the beach, but I really like the idea of being able to control my music get notifications and ultimately see the time whenever I am in a wet place. It just makes it more like a watch. Thirdly the screen is easy to read outside, which I think is an important feature for a smart watch as it is certainly important to be able to read the time and get notifications when you're outside. This is yet another feature that makes it more like a standard watch. I guess really what I've said here is that I want my smart watch to mainly be a watch, one I can wear and read/use anywhere at anytime. If the next generation of Apple watch is fully waterproof, at least by this I mean able to be used in the shower and the pool and at the beach, then I will definitely be more eager to buy it. Though I'll probably end up getting the watch around the end of next year after I get my iPhone upgraded on contract, just because I am a geek and love new devices, and honestly the watch is still something that is hard to pass up. It definitely is cool, but right now the Pebble seems like a much more functional watch. You can't make phone calls or use Siri on it like the Apple watch, but personally I would rather have a fully waterproof, always on, easy to read in daylight screen, than any of these still cool, but unnecessary features. Does anyone agree with me?
