Two full charges with the Pebble Time
June 30, 2015
Thursday, a week ago, I received my shiny new Pebble Time in red. It was quite exciting to receive; I had been looking forward to playing with it since the Kickstarter. While I had an original Pebble, I didn’t wear it much for a variety of reasons. I’m betting $200 that version 2 will have worked out all the major flaws and provide a much better experience.
The “Smart” watch: The first few weeks
April 23, 2014
When I was a wee whippersnapper, I loved watches. Even at that age I was a technophile, so not only did I have a bunch of them, they were all the highest tech watches I could find. By today’s standards the watches are crude, but I had one that could tell the temperature (very handy in stuffy BART cars during class field trips), calculate (duh), and I even had one that functioned as a pager. Of course as technology progressed I started to spend my spare cash on computer related goodies instead of watches. Later the cellphone supplanted watches in terms of my interests. Now the “smart watch” revolution is in full swing and I’m taking a stab at it again.
