Which smartwatch to buy
Many iPhone users might be waiting for the long-anticipated Apple Watch, but already today there are some very fabulous smartwatches on the market.
The Pebble smartwatch was released back in 2013 after an extremely successful $10.3 million Kickstarter campaign. Pebble has created their very own notifications focused operating system and is compatible with iPhones and most Android phones. The Pebble Steel takes all the best features of the original Pebble, but combines it with a more elegant design. It comes with a Gorilla glass display, is available in brushed stainless or matte black and consumers have the option to choose for a metal or leather wristband. The device allows users to read texts, make phone calls, skip music tracks on their phone, and also works with a variety of third-party developed apps, including many fitness tracking apps, available in Pebble’s fast-growing store. In addition to many other smartwatches, the Pebble Watch comes with a more competitive price, has an amazing battery life of 7 days and features a daylight readable E Ink display. Many people claim, this is the best smartwatch on the market right now.
