It’s Time! Pebble Time readying for shipment, announces pre-order date
This is a big week for Pebble! It’s latest product, Pebble Time, is starting to be shipped out to the first 10,000 backers. According to a Kickstarter update the company sent out today, early backer smartwatches are at the distribution centers with tracking information expected to hit inboxes soon.
its screen is akin to “e-paper” technology and is always on (and therefore completely readable under sunlight), unlike other smartwatches which use the same screens (and internal components) as smartphones. you don’t have to shake your wrist to see the time (unless you’re in pitch black darkness, in which case it will turn on the backlight for a couple seconds)
it’s compatible with both iOS and Android
you can download watch faces and apps super easily
it has actual buttons instead of a tiny ass touch screen or weird knob
it’s also open source to the point that you can literally scan a QR code and get custom firmware downlodaded onto your watch in under ten seconds
i’ve had the first edition pebble for a year and a half and it’s something i would recommend way more than any “fancier” smartwatch.
because tbh, fuck having to recharge that thing on your wrist every night
