We gave you our take on the MetaWatch (here) earlier this month, one of the current wave of smart watches. It certainly is up in the air as to whether or not these will stick or be relegated to the dustbin of history. If you’d like to jump into the segment, Matt came across an article that gives a nice overview of the options.
Not surprisingly, the darling of the roundup turns out to be the Pebble, though this Wirecutter article is really damning it with faint praise. In short, they’re not particularly a fan of the various smart watches (ie, watches that sync via bluetooth to your phone) that are out there.
Based on their recommendations, though, if you get one, the Pebble is your best bet, with the Metawatch being a very close second in their book. If our review piqued your interest, you’ll definitely want to read the article for a survey of the segment.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
