    If it’s more Pebble than Fitbit then it would be a great watch

      Don’t agree. Pebble was crap at the end of the day and it was fundamentally nothing more than a glorified notification device without much use beyond that. The apps sucked. The interface sucked and the only reason it had a loyal base of followers was because the company is seen as the first to get into the wearable tech market ahead of Apple or even Google.
      That said, my Android Wear is certainly much more adept at notifications and has other uses that Pebble could never match. Add to that I’ve had more complements on the watch design (Fossil Q Founder) whereas Pebble was just butt ugly.

    There are two mobile OS in the world right now: iOS and Android. Anyone telling you differently is delusional. Suuurrree Fitbit can create its own ecosystem and app developers are rushing to create apps for this new platform…. Let’s see how long Fitbit’s CEO last.

    I had a fitbit charge hr at one point… had to get it replaced under warranty because it started falling apart, which is a common occurrence apparently. They lost me because of shoddy crap. Moved onto a Garmin Forerunner 230. So much better.
