• Pebble E-paper watch on Kickstarter, looks awesome! Coming for iOS and Android



    I'll admit, I love toys. I've always wanted a half decent watch to pair with my smartphone but the models offered in the past just left little to be desired. I Remember the Sony Ericsson attempts co branded with fossil, which were great at the time but just fell short in so many areas.

    This new watch that I saw on iMore may actually be a decent watch paired with an iPhone or Android device that will work, give some functionality and have decent battery life.

    It's on Kickstarter and has more then received it's initial $100000 of pledges needed.
    Some key things I wanted to share:

    *Will typically last 7 days on a charge
    *Will always display a watch face (no pushing buttons to see time)
    *Accelerometer
    *Bluetooth 2.1
    *SDK available to make apps for the watch
    *uses 22m watch bands

    This may be the first accessory watch I actually buy
    What about you guys?

      I'm intrigued. I'm wondering what kinds of apps would go with this. Maybe a simplified GPS. Say a kind of compass arrow pointing to a marked destination? Time, of course, and appointments. Does it have a chime for alarms?

      Most of these smart watches start from $150. The niche market is a bit too niche imo.
      I'm also doubting the 7days charge, much like the 400+hrs on my phones. I'd get this if the battery does indeed last 168hrs in a real world scenario, includes BT 4.0, while still keeping it below $150 after shipping and taxes.

      I think $150 is too high for them but I would like to buy one of them some day...

    What 5g phone to get

    Here’s a big question for you ATT folks:

    Do 5G capable phones on ATT always prefer NewRadio even if LTE signal is available?

    Or is there going to be a constant battery killing bounce between...

    Are pin refills a think of the past, now? I can't see them listed on megasaver. I still have money on my old phone.

    If the size matters so much, then buy a 4 year old phone (SE) with a 4 year old crapped out battery for more money than a new phone.....
