Why Are Smart Watches Getting Worse?

The pebble is perfect. Notifications, music control, long battery life. Nothing else fricking matters.

    i genuinely miss my pebble just functioning
    you have to jump through so many hoops to get it to work now because of all the crappy online bullshit it had to hook into.
    it still works but... yeah. fricking sucks now tho.
    also its because the fitness freaks got ahold of them so they stopped being a cool tech gadget and is now all about "health".
    also e-ink is still way too expensive to use because the company literally cannot stop themselves from sitting ontop of the tech and patent and slurping up as much cash like the pathetic bottom-feeders they are and so everyone avoids the frick out of it now

      I bought Garmin but I still didn't want a color screen. I bought a model with a black and white screen. I would just use a regular Casio instead but I sleep so poorly that I want to keep track of the hours. Also I don't hate being able to always check what my phone notification was about this time. Those two features are what keep me from using a regular watch with a 10 year battery. Any smartwatch with a color screen is 100% bloat.

    Being programmable was the best feature. I programmed my pebble 2 to control my smart light bulbs in my apartment with gestures like a fricking wizard. good times. Too bad they sold out like homosexuals to fitbit

    I like my Fossil Neutra, but it seems like that product is being dropped off the face of the earth. Market's getting so thin and terrible someone could probably make bank with a shitty kickstarter that delivers 5 years later and delivers half the features people want.

      I like the idea of a wrist compass. I bought one of the old fashion "compass on a wristband" one though since that doesn't need a computer.

        you can use an analog wristwatch and the sun to have a roughly accurate compass

          This is what I used to do but it doesn't work at night or very overcast days so I decided to get a compass.

            true true, more of a "if ever needed to", not "actively use"

      Having time on your wrist is infinitely more useful than having it on your phone. Its not something you truely appreciate till you wear a watch for a while. I had started roughly 10 years ago with a smart watch because I figured all the extra features would make me wear it more, and at this point I just wear an automatic Seiko 24/7 cause I really dont use the notifications and shit, but I still want the time without needing to baby yet another battery. I could get stuck on a desert island and this Seiko would probly outlast me in that senario.

      If they made a new G Watch R model, I might get back into smart watches, but everything I have messed with since has been dog shit.

    Pebble like other smartwatches was online only. Online only things always get worse.

    If you can settle for 4-6 days of battery the pinetime does pretty well.

    What went wrong with Pebble? Didn't they get loads of money off GoFundMe?

      Google or some other company bought them and decided the best thing to do with that investment was torpedo their only product.

        After the initial success, they made way too many watches and failed to sell them https://medium.com/@ericmigi/why-pebble-failed-d7be937c6232
