With the arrival of Android Wear, does Pebble still matter?
New Android Wear watches have been the talk of the town since they were first announced, and with the G Watch and Gear Live arriving at doorsteps in just a few days, many smartwatch lovers will get their first taste of Android on a watch. But that doesn't mean that other devices — like the Pebble — shouldn't still have a place on your wrist.
As Phil at Android Central explains, Pebble is still going strong and there is no reason to overlook it just yet. Android Wear watches are brand new (mine aren't even here yet!) and there is still plenty of work to be done. Pebble however has been cranking along with great momentum for a while now. There has been many software updates, feature additions and even a new appstore. Not to mention the great battery life, cross-platform use and ease of use.
Just because something is bigger, brighter and more expensive doesn't necessarily mean it's better. You can walk into stores like Best Buy and Target and pick up a Pebble right now. You can actually find them pretty much anywhere in the world. Android Wear devices however are only available in certain regions for the time being.
Head over to Android Central and give a read, then hit up the comments and let us know what you think. Does Pebble still have a place in the smartwatch world? Or will new Android Wear devices soon take over?
