My Pebble Watch has shipped!

My Pebble watch is winging its way to me thanks to DHL, it’s currently in Hong Kong somewhere.

You may remember I blogged the Pebble when it was first announced as a kick starter. The infamous Seiko and Casio Data-Banks had been and gone and the Samsung Gear was not available then so I wondered how successful this could be.

 

Clearly application eco system is key and it so far looks good, but soon I can speak as a real user.

 

I do have some questions I need answering,

1) Will I look a total dork with this on my wrist? Geek is cool, Dork is bad
2) Having to charge my watch every 7 hours,  that may get annoying
3) Is not having to get my phone out of my pocket every time I feel that vibration actually a benefit?

Be back with the results, experiences good and bad as soon as it arrives.

 

As a side, why do I keep feeling the vibration of my phone only to discover its not vibrated? and more importantly is it bad?

    Jim, keen to hear your feedback about the Pebble when it gets to you, and a measure of the Dork quotient 😉 As for the vibration-that-wasn’t, sound like you (& me!) experience this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_vibration_syndrome
