Design will probably be the most divisive element of the Pebble 2. By the standard of today’s mob of smartwatches and fitness trackers, it’s not a looker, with a rectangular shape, monochrome 144 x 168 pixel screen and plasticky feel that doesn’t scream style unless you’re all about “geek chic”. Its 22mm silicone strap comes with a quick-release mechanism, and the Pebble 2 now comes with a Gorilla Glass 3 display in place of the original’s plastic one, making it more durable. However, that screen also protrudes a tad… More at Wareable.
I asked my daughter what she thought of the Pebble 2 last night and she said “I’m not a toddler Dad” and proceeded to walk away. She is right, it doesn’t really matter what it does or how good the battery life is, the design is awful.
