Paul,


I am with you. I think it would be great to have a watch that is

connected to the phone.  As I keep my phone either in my pocket

or in my belt holster, it's far more convenient to just glance at my

wrist for incoming alerts rather than to have to pull out a device.


Glad I didn't jump on Pebble now knowing that Apple and Samsung

are racing to market their own watches.  It should be very interesting

over the next year to see what these companies come up with.

I am not particularly fond of the look of this device but you can read about the

new Androidly here.


I think anyone considering purchasing one of these is best to wait to see what

Apple does first.

Not only is that butt ugly and clunky looking, it's a bad photoshop job, which means the real deal may look a great deal worse.

David, Please let us know what you think of Pebble. I came close to purchasing it, but I think I am going to wait to see what Apple comes up with.

WIll do. I stopped wearing watches a long time ago, but I used to love wearing them and like many here I prefer a good looking analog.

One iPod Nano watch bands came out Apple really should have realized the potential and offered a limited selection of apps. More expansive health monitors than Nike, GPS, email readability (tho responding would require voice recognition, i would think), etc.
