Fitbit buys another smartwatch manufacturer, Vector Watch


  • Wunsch

    Amusingly, I only learned of the existence of Vector when I started looking for alternatives to Pebble with a similar philosophy (focus on notifications, e-ink screens, etc) after the Fitbit buyout. Now I’m glad I didn’t jump immediately and buy one.

    What makes this even more interesting is that the Vector Luna is probably the next closest smartwatch to the “Pebble” design philosophy: low-power, long battery, less features. A proper smart WATCH, as opposed to the mini wrist-phones from Samsung, Apple and the Android crews.

    I’m really hoping we get a good pebble/luna style smartwatch from Fitbit, since they keep buying all the good smartwatch makers. Of course, being a Fitbit it will super proprietary and locked-down, I’m sure.
