I posted yesterday about the U80 Smartwatch I bought and how I switched with my son for his Pebble.  I’m so happy.  I was always a bit jealous of the Pebble watch I got him for Christmas because he never freaking wore it after saying he wanted it.  Hello, give it to mom, I’ll get some use out of it.

I love this one so much.  The only thing it is missing that the U80 has is the ability to use the watch as a speaker phone.  Other than that it has so much more, including the ability to see my text notifications which was the whole reason I wanted a smart watch.  I just started working outside of the house after being a work at home mom for 12 years and I wanted my kids to be able to reach me in an emergency when I didn’t have my phone on.

It does that part great.

My favorite watchface so far is Fair Weather (the one you can see in the picture).  My most used apps so far are Misfit (an app kind of like the Fitbit), Morpheuz (I have a sleep study coming up, I thought I’d get a jump on it, turns out I sleep like crap), and Music For Pebble.  I actually like the watchface more than anything else.  I’m a bit of a “how full is the moon because I want to know if my kids are going to be crazy tonight” kind of superstitious.   I’ve looked through a lot of apps but I’m waiting for ones that I see that say you must have me, I will make your life simpler.

I would really like to get the Pebble Time next because of all of the new features but that is something that will have to be put off until another day.  I’m giving this 4 stars because the cheapie smartwatch I bought had speakerphone capability.  If a $25 dollar smartwatch can do that, a Pebble in the $100 range should be able to also. 

I bought the Pebble Smart Watch myself.  Amazon verified purchase.
