Pebble’s design philosophy is completely different from the Samsung Galaxy Gear. It uses black and white electronic paper screen, rather than color, which makes people think of Amazon Kindle e-book reader. So, no color display, no speakers, no microphone, no touch screen. What about such a watch in the end?
How much is the smart watch?
The first is the volume. Pebble smart watch is small, very thin, but the battery life is enough, each charge can be used for a week. In contrast, Samsung Gear’s life only two days. In addition, Pebble only four buttons: up, down, return, select, the user will never make a mistake. It is still waterproof. Here is not the splash protection, that is shower, swimming and diving (up to 165 feet). In this function, any product Replica Cartier jewelry on the market can not be comparable with it.
Despite all the advantages of the above, but by Keshi Lin plastic made of the original version of Pebble, far from fashion. The first release of a Pebble smart watch can still be sold, the price of 150 (about 930 yuan) US dollars or so. In fact, consumers will be able to buy the latest Pebble Steel for just over $ 100. Pebble Steel is equipped with stainless steel case, leather or metal strap. It looks very stylish, I believe many people are willing to wear it in the hands.
Pebble Steel does not have much functionality, but each is trying to do the best.
First, it can send a vibration reminder. Reminders include SMS, e-mail, Facebook messages, application messages, and calls. SMS and Facebook messages will be displayed on the watch screen. If it is other types of content, Pebble Steel will display the name or number for the user. And through the up and down button, the user can choose to accept or reject the call.
Interestingly, users can also set their own hope to watch those content on the watch. For example, turn to the user to play “Words with Friends”, receive Voxer voice messages, to remind the cat, etc., depending on the user.
IPhone users can directly select the content to be displayed on the watch in the existing notification settings. Android phone users have to download an application called Pebble Notifier. As a result, Pebble Steel will vibrate when you receive text messages, phone calls, Facebook messages, app calls, and Gmail messages.
Second, it can control the music on the phone. It can display the name of the song, with the right three buttons can be on a song, the next song, pause / play operation. In other words, users can control the music playback process even without touching the phone. Perhaps in the future, humans Cartier love bracelet replica will evolve into robots like “robots”, and maybe.
Third, it can run the application. In the introduction of Pebble Steel smart watches, Pebble also introduced a new generation of 2.0 operating system and Pebble application store. At present Pebble application store has more than 1000 applications, these applications apply to all models Pebble. It is important that all applications are free. However, before searching for download applications, users need to download a Pebble application on the phone.
To be honest, Pebble store some applications are “garbage”, but some applications are very good. Here recommended several “fine”:
This application is suitable for music workers, is the metronome on the wrist. Its characteristic is not like the other metronome as toot, but “quietly” to vibrate. Listeners never know, the singer has such a small tool in the help.
– Pebble Snap
This application is used to remotely control the operation of mobile phone camera. Press the middle button in Pebble, it is equivalent to press the shutter. The disadvantage of this application is the need to install a matching application on the phone. And, it’s not free.
Nest (smart thermostat) users must try this application. Even in thousands of miles away, the user can use it to mediate the temperature inside the house, just press the Pebble watch up or down button can be.
This application can turn the user’s phone into a remote spy camera. In this way, the Pebble watch, the user will be able to see the phone camera “see” to all things.
As the name suggests, PebbleGPS is the wrist on the GPS navigator. This application is slightly rough in the design, naturally can not be compared with Google Maps. But if the user is walking, cycling or riding a motorcycle, then it can help no small busy.
The same is a remote control application, used to control the phone to play the slide. With it, the user no longer needs to wield his hands from time to time.
This is a Twitter client application, the performance is unexpectedly good. It can be neatly Fake Cartier love bracelet arranged in the Twitter message displayed on the watch screen, and even directly reply to a tweet.
In addition to the above several applications, Pebble application store there are hundreds of games, stocks, fitness, calculator applications. But in order to keep the watch simple and sensitive, Pebble limited smartphone users can only install 8 applications on the phone, including “dial”. Speaking of which have to mention the smart phone dial design, there are numbers, there are long needle, there are generous beautiful, humorous and fun. Pebble Steel users are said to even set their own dial, such as upload photos.
Of course, an electronic product can not be without a drawback. Pebble, many consumers have a lot of complaints. Which focus on the smart watch and mobile phone connection between the start. First, there is no user manual, consumers do not know how to operate. Of course, you can find a guide on the Internet, but more from other Pebble users, which may be a lot of problems. ; For example, in Google search “delete Pebble application”, it will tell you the way for the 1.0 system. Second, let the watch and the phone to maintain the connection of the Bluetooth wireless signal, you need to spend 5% -10% of the electricity. Third, the connection between the watch and the phone is sometimes broken, the user needs to re-match. And this process is sometimes very fast, sometimes very slow.
