I am highly satisfied with my Pebble (official site, subreddit is /r/pebble), and full disclosure this is probably going to come off as fanboyish.

Basically there are two generations of Pebbles. The Pebble and the Pebble Time:^(Amazon_Smile_links_below)

Watch | Price | Description
--- | --- | ---
OG Pebble | $50-$70 | This is the original Pebble, it's an adorably fugly watch. Black and white 5-7 day battery life, the features are more limited than later generations. It is known to have a screen tearing issue after 1-2 years of use, but Pebble will replace it no questions asked as long as it's under warranty. Standard watchband without quick release. Waterproof. Battery life 5-7 days.
Pebble Steel | $99-$130 | The "stylish" version of the original Pebble. It's highly praised for its design, is also black and white, and features are more limited than later generations. It is known to have a screen tearing issue after 1-2 years of use, but Pebble will replace it no questions asked as long as it's under warranty. Standard watchband without quick release. Waterproof. Battery life 5-7 days.
Pebble Time | $99-$120 | The "lower tier" next gen watch. At first people didn't care for the design but once they got it complaints went away. It is much thinner than the OG Pebble, it has color screen, a microphone, and the hardware is upgraded to accommodate more complex apps and watchfaces. Quick release watchband. Water resistant. Battery life 5-7 days.
Pebble Time Steel | $150-$200 | The "higher tier" next gen watch. At first people complained about the large bezel, but in person it looks gorgeous. It's the same as the PT, except the it has a battery life of 7-9 days. The increased price is for the design and slightly increased battery life.
Pebble Time Round | $150-$200 | The newest released Pebble watch. Again, people at first complained about the bezel but seem to grown fond of it. There are "skins" out there that make it look more stylish by adding numbers around it (like a standard timepiece). It's even thinner than the PT or PTS, considered to be the more fancy Pebble watch. Same stats as all the others except battery life is 1-2 days, and at first apps and watchfaces were limited due to the round design. Since then there are plenty of app options. Less water resistant than PT or PTS, mostly good for a quick shower but not a swim.
Pebble 2 | $99-129 | (Lowest price is the early bird kickstarter, highest is retail) Pebble announced a new series of watches on May 24th. The Pebble 2 is the successor to the OG Pebble: it is black and white and made with plastic, but much more elegant. The processor, storage and ram have all improved to be equivalent to the PT/PTS hardwares, so more capable apps can be installed. The screen size is the same. It now supports smartstraps, includes a microphone and heart rate monitor.
Pebble Time 2 | $179-199 | (Lowest price is the early bird kickstarter, highest is retail) The Pebble Time 2 is the successor to both the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel. It is made of stainless steel, has more ram and storage, better processor, and the screen is 50% bigger. This means it the bezel much smaller! It also includes support for smartstraps, has a microphone and heart rate monitor.
Pebble Core | $69-99 | (Lowest price is the early bird kickstarter, highest is retail) This little device is the first non-watch release by Pebble. It's a tiny little box with a GPS, 4gb for storage, slot for a sim card, and bluetooth. Basically it's designed for runners: the GPS lets you track your runs, you can stream Spotify, load your own offline music to it, link it to you phone and watch. It's also advertised towards developers, has an access port and runs Android 5.

For comparison, Apple Watch and Android Wear smartwatches have a brighter screen that is absolutely gorgeous, but cannot be seen outdoors as well. The screen turns off if not in use to save battery life (battery life around 12-24 hours, similar to a smartphone). They have much more functionality and fancier features, like GPS and heart rate, along with a touch screen. It's like a mini smartphone on your wrist.

Some of the reasons I highly recommend the Pebble:

  • It is cheaper than most other smartwatches, but the quality is superb. A note: the bezel on the Pebble Time is known to scratch very easily, I recommend getting a screen wrapper from gadgetwraps.
  • Uncomparable battery life. The Pebble compared to Android watches or Apple Watch is like a Kindle compared to any tablet. Battery life is 7-9 days for the Pebble Time Steel, 5-7 days for the Pebble Time, or 1-2 days for the Pebble Time Round.
  • The screen can be seen in bright light, it's something like the old gameboy screens, as well as dark (shake to enable the light, just like a normal watch)
  • It's thin, much thinner than the Android Wear watches I've tried previously. It's also more stylish, and it has quick release for the bands to change the looks. Every couple weeks I switch from metal to leather or to nato bands.
  • It has a microphone, and various apps that make use of it. You can add stuff to the Timeline (calendar inside the watch), activate Google Now, someone even made it's own little Siri type thing.
  • It tracks your steps and sleep (if you want) and syncs it with Google Fit or Apple Health. Stats are viewable within the watch or within the Pebble app.
  • The timeline is really handy. You can "pin" stuff to the future to get reminded, your Google Calendar can sync with it so you see what's up for today, weather is shown for each day. If your a sports fan then scores are shown as well.
  • Lots of apps and watchfaces, vast majority free

    I think what might interest people the most is the capability for smart straps. These straps can add additional functionality to the watch by connecting new hardware in the form of a strap. My personal favorites:

    (Smartstraps are supported by all Pebble watches, including the new Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2)

  • A strap that measures your heart rate and integrates with Pebble Health (and thus Google Fit/Apple Health). Posed for release in August, 2016.
  • A strap that lets you pay for stuff without any credit card, even if your phone is not on you, and at any register. Posed for release in July, 2016.
  • A strap that has GPS and an extra battery, also integrates with Pebble Health (and thus Google Fit/Apple Health). The battery is supposed to give an extra 7 days of life to the watch. Posed for release in October, 2016.

    Basically, I think of the Pebble as a normal watch with some smartphone features (replying to texts via voice or canned response, initiating texts, viewing notifications) and other bonuses (health stuff).

    Hope this helps!

I use a smartwatch called pebble. I really like it. It tracks my sleep very accurately, and tracks my pulse pretty well too.

Pebble is a now out of business company that was acquired by fitbit about a year ago. So if you buy the pebble with the heart rate monitor, you'll be getting the same tech as a fitbit basically. It also has about a week of battery life and takes about an hour, maybe two, to charge fully. On top of all that, because it's out of business now, the "Pebble 2 +HR" (the only one with a heart rate monitor) only runs for about $79 USD.

That being said, there are a few drawbacks. Because the company is out of business, there's no warranty program. Another drawback with the price is the screen. It's pretty good, but it's no apple watch. It's an "e-paper" display, but it works great for me and saves battery. Another drawback is there isn't as many apps as the apple watch or fitbit, and it isn't touchscreen.

All in all, I love my pebble. The user interface, although not touchscreen, is super great. It tracks my sleep super well, tracks my heart rate well, and functions as a normal smartwatch. It works perfectly for me. It's also extremely customizable. I would watch some reviews I'd you're considering buying it, just to be sure, but I can't recommend this watch more.

Here's the link if you want to look into it some more.

(It's a little outdated, but still useful)

I currently have a Pebble 2SE, the Pebble 2 Heart Rate* could be a good option, but if you want the latest features it depends what phone you have/what you want. If you have an iPhone, just get an apple watch. If you on Android, good luck! 😅 Jokes aside (I have a Pixel, love Android) there are just so many Android Wear watches and none of them are as good as they could be. Wear OS needs some work...

If you just need fitness features maybe look into the latest from FitBit like the Versa.

I have the older version of the Garmin Vivoactive (the newer one tracks HR).

I'm sure there are a lot of differing opinions and great advice for these things but I really like the vivoactive for a lot of reasons, the main one being price. Other watches may do more but this one does the most for the price in my opinion. It's great for all the things you mentioned above. I don't have the new vivoactive hr but a friend does and they haven't had any problems with the hr monitor. Great battery life, notifications from my phone, not too many other bells and whistles though. Truly the only issue I've ever had with the thing is it will occasionally miss a 25 meter section of the pool, maybe 1/10 times I swim it will say I swam XX25 when I ended on the same wall and it should be in increments of 50. Never had it flake out on important swims though.

I got mine on ebay and was able to get the watch and HR strap for the price of just the watch. The newest model sells for $199 on amazon. [Here's a great review on the newest model] (https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/05/garmin-vivoactivehr-review.html), also in addition to the this sub, dcrainmaker's website is a great resource for gear reviews.

u/RajSingh14 · 2 pointsr/Watches

Here's my collection so far, only began a few years ago. I might as well give you some context on these watches, and I'll link all of them them on Amazon. So I'll start from the one on the far right, my prized possession of the lot, the Emporio Armani AR2448 ,the most expensive watch I own out of the 4. It's design introduced me into preferring chronograph watches to others, and I managed to get it at a fairly good price too!

The next one to the left was my daily watch of last year, the Sekonda 1005.27, I found it to be very hard wearing and kept it's elegant look despite having a rubber strap, (which I had to replace with the nylon strap as seen above) because the strap-pin hole thing (there's probably a name) slowly torn open casting the strap as unusable. It was extremely cheap at the time, bought it for £80, the chronograph functionality really tempted me, and with a dome shaped glass screen, I couldn't say no!

Then came my most recent watch, my first Fossil. The Coachman 2891. This watch has always intrigued me, but I was always unsure on buying it due to the not so good durability of leather straps. I especially wanted this watch because of its similarity to one worn by the protagonist of an adventure style game called Uncharted, (which is worth the playthrough) The watch just suited my style of dress, so I decided to buy it. But all was going well until I found out how easily it can be scratched. I'm considering a screen replacement because of how easily this can be damaged, from a level 4 of mohs level of hardness picks! I've only owned it for a few months now, and it looks as if It had been through years of wear and tear - I recommend for the looks only.

And my final watch of the collection, the pebble time Kickstarter edition. I bought this back when pebble were a successful company, but their (not so) recent demise by being bought by Fitbit has caused these watches to be quite scarce, hence the hefty prices. I use this watch on the daily, it's my alternative to the Apple watch, because it was a lot cheaper (picked it up for £120) and it's 7 day battery life suits actual every day usage. I should move on from the specs, this watch has a more outstanding look to it after I custom polished it to match more smarter occasions, even though it's not as intriguing as a mechanical watch, it is useful in my every day life, with the interchangeable strap system proving to be very useful.

Well, there's my collection at the moment. Any recommendations on what watches I should go towards to add to my growing collection?

Edit: Not so mid-range watch collection.

u/HelgaG_Pataki · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I have a Polar FT7 and a Fitbit Flex. They are used for completely different types of activities, so I don't feel that one excludes the use of the other. I will also note that I LOVE data. I like being able to look back over the week/month/year at what I was doing and how I've improved. If you aren't big on data, these might not be of much interest.

I wear the Fitbit all day at work, around the house, wherever I may be. It's useful for those days I need a kick in the butt to go be active. If I see it's dinner time and I only have 3 dots (6000 steps), I'll take the dog out for a long walk. It is also useful for deciphering if I'm tired because I've been active or if I'm tired for another reason - it was largely responsible for me cutting out caffeine as I was experiencing a drop in energy on days without significant exertion. If you just need a daily reminder to push yourself a little farther, this may be an option for you. I have had two units fail on me, but their support staff replaced it fairly quickly without hassle and even sent the whole new package rather than just the electronic unit so I have spare chargers and wrist bands.

The Polar watch is a running accessory. I don't do too much in the way of strenuous exercise (although that is changing) aside from my running, but I looooove having the data from my runs. I like being able to set the screen to heart rate percentages, I aim to keep my HR around 85% on distance runs. If I'm feeling overly tired or slow, normally my HR is in the 90's range. Additionally, being able to access information on my watch is kind of cool. The chest strap takes some getting used to, I notice now that I tend to run without inflating my chest to breath between the strap and my tight sports bra, there isn't a ton of wiggle room.

Overall, I like them both. I find the Polar watch delivers more useful information and I would be much more upset if it stopped working than I have been the 2x my fitbit died. BUT if you are just jumping into the world of active lifestyle, a Fitbit might be a great form of motivation. Feel free to ask any questions you think of, I use both regularly for almost a year now so I feel pretty comfortable giving recommendations.

u/CJOttawa · 2 pointsr/loseit

> ...for CICO to work best for me, I need to get an accurate picture of what I'm burning...

This is exactly why I got a fitness wearable with heart-rate monitor - way more accurate than the estimates from manually entering exercises.

From the reading I did, it seemed Garmin wearables were the most accurate so that's what I went with. No regrets - they sync well with MyFitnessPal.

I'm not slagging Fitbit - they started the fitness wearable revolution but they have upside and downsides:

  • The Fitbit app is beautiful and there are "challenges" you can join (step challenges etc). Garmin has added challenges but the focus is on athletics, not socializing. Garmin improved their app last year making it much more user-friendly.

  • Fitbit, AFAIK, makes you pay to look at your data in more detail. Garmin gives you that for free, and it pushes each exercise to MyFitnessPal where I believe Fitbit only sends a calorie burn.

  • There are a lot of reports of quality control issues with Fitbit devices; bands delaminating etc. Google that to find details.


    I have an older Vivoactive HR but there are newer models. Here are three I'd recommend, depending on how much you want to spend:

  • vívoactive 3 On sale now for $250USD (basically a smartwatch, with GPS, built-in tap-pay etc - designed to compete with AppleWatch, Fitbit Ionic etc)

  • vívosport $200USD (most of the features of the vivoactive 3 in a smaller package)

  • vívosmart 3 $140USD (most of the features of the vivosport, minus GPS, but still has a step counter for distance, heart-rate monitor etc - a coworker has one and loves it)

    If money's tight, you might find a Vivoactive HR for less; not as pretty as the above but it's basically a boxy version of the vivoactive 3, without the tap-pay function.


    > ...I have my activity level set to "lightly active"...

    If you actually log exercises in MFP, either manually, or by using a fitness tracker (Garmin, Fitbit),
    or via another app like "MapMyFitness", leave your activity level at "sedentary/not very active" (different wording for same thing, web vs. app).

    The MFP activity level setting is a legacy from a
    decade* ago when we didn't have smartphones and fitness trackers. It lets MFP take a wild guess at your daily burn without actual data.

    Using anything other than "sedentary/not very active" while entering actual exercises via tracker/app, you'd be double-counting calories burned so just leave it at sedentary.

    Also ensure you have "Enable Negative Adjustments" checked - this will make sure calories from tracked activities aren't double counted. (e.g. step count + the steps you take when going for a logged run)

The Pebble 2 Heart Rate was my daily watch for about 6 months. I haven’t worn it in about a year, but it still keeps great charge. It needs a charge every six to seven days. There are a few small scratches in the screen, but not super visible. The watch is overall in very good shape, but the band is somewhat worn out. Includes original box and charger as well.

u/RedKryptonite · 2 pointsr/running

DC Rainmaker just published his winter recommendation list and he called the Garmin vivoactive HR the best all-around road running watch.

> Road Running – Best All Arounder: Garmin Vivoactive HR

> Last year Garmin really nailed it with the Garmin FR230 and FR235 series, and those watches continue to be very solid. Especially for those that want a bit more customization and features like structured workouts. However, I think for those that are just looking for a great all-around running watch that can double-down in other workouts on the fly (i.e. swimming, cycling, and even stand-up paddle boarding), the Vivoactive HR that was introduced this past spring is really a better bet.

> The unit is about $80 cheaper than the FR235, which is somewhat funny since in many ways the Vivoactive HR has more features (both have optical HR). Where things differ though is that the FR235 has functions like structured workout support (the Vivoactive HR doesn’t), as well as VO2Max estimation (again, not on the Vivoactive HR). It also has deeper data page customization. But beyond those big ticket items, the Vivoactive HR is the winner.

At $169.99, I'd be all over it if I didn't already have an FR225.

Goal: Get serious and start on the path of losing the ~200lbs I need to lose.

I am going to do this by REALLY getting back on the wagon with low carb/keto. I have screwed around way too long and am now facing on a possible diagnosis of diabetes.

I will be logging my weight/food/any exercise into Fitday. I will take a before and during pic (since there will be no after that quick with the weight I need to lose). These two things will be my 'proof' so to speak. (I am getting a head start on it tomorrow but know my progress won't start counting till the 1st :) )

u/Fr_Time · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Dat is a nice canvas. I mean a really nice Canvas. 6 yards?! You could literally paint allll the the things!

Both of these are on my randoms list:

  • My current high priority item is the fitbit flex! I had been given a Force without the charger which was cool for a few days until it died and they no longer sell them anymore. I had really been wanting one for a while. Give me that little extra motivation to be more active.

  • Also on my random list is the PS Move Controller which also goes along with the more active bit. I figure if I am going to play games then I want to be active while doing so. Some games require the second controller, such as this one.

    From my Doctor Who list is this badass FOB watch. Why do I want it? Because it is a badass FOB watch lol.

    Excellent contes... question to ask! Thanks for doing so!
u/spectre323 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I bought the Vivoactive HR about a month ago. It's not full on smart watch but it's not simply an activity tracker. I would say it's a great in between option. It gets push notifications and what not but no speaker or mic. There are some apps for it but nothing like a real app store.

I wanted something to track multiple sports, heart rate, and water proof. I also wanted the option to pair a chest strap heart rate monitor too. Finally, I didn't want it to be a monster on my wrist. Vivoactive HR does all those. Only thing I didn't like was the price. $250 is pretty steep.

Here's a review by Techy Agent. I like his reviews because he really puts devices through the paces with weight lifting, running, cycling, etc.

u/FuckMeWithAHammer · 1 pointr/oneplusone

A pebble. It's an awesome complement to your smartphone and you can do a lot of cool things such as automate your house, if you have the proper equipment, and show you navigation on your wrist so you don't have to look at your phone if you are biking or driving.

There's a huge appstore so you can look at anything that may interest you such as daily tools, utilities, notification helpers, remotes, games and fitness apps. If you like to run a lot, a pebble is a must buy because you can easily see your total time, distance and pace. That's my favorite use of the pebble by far.

A cool feature I luckily haven't been able to use is send emergency texts or phone calls directly from your wrist in case of emergency and you can't access your phone.


only $99 on amazon :)

I was inspired to do a better picture by u/noryork's stunning watch post.

Strap: 22mm black metal bracelet by Ritche (10 GBP, took 15 days to arrive from Hong Kong): http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ritche-Stainless-Steel-Bracelet-Straight/dp/B00DKYC7TK

Wrap: SlickWraps.com Brushed Onyx wrap (6 GBP, took just seven days to arrive from Oklahoma): http://www.slickwraps.com/Brushed-Onyx-Pebble-p/sw-pw-msonyx.htm

Watchface: Studio Clock, free on Pebble Store

All in all it has a far better weight, the strap doesn't irritate or catch like the standard rubber one, it looks more mature and people keep asking me about it - so I'm happy!

I wanted a Steel, I didn't want to wait six weeks for one and not be able to order the metal strap. All in all, I'm very pleased.

u/KetoFitness · 5 pointsr/golf

If you would like a multi-functional watch, I strongly recommend the Garmin Vivoactive HR. It has a really accurate golf app and provides support for a truckload of other functions. I am a fitness buff and bought it for that reason, but have used the golf feature a ton of times. Biggest downside is that is doesn't track distances and clubs used like GameGolf for example. Also, it's pretty utilitarian looking. But the value for what you get is probably tops in the fitness watch segment. Does everything well.

u/metarugia · 1 pointr/nexus4

I just got the Flex! Totally loving it and it easily has increased my desire to workout more or just be more active.

Glad that I can still sync to my computer through the USB dongle and have the app on the N4 update as well.

I don't run but I track my daily movements.
iOS has a native health app that feeds off the m7/m8 motion coprocessor . Pretty accurate. I use argus as my daily driver. Pretty cool app.

this is pretty good.

u/CodesCubesAndCrashes · 20 pointsr/pebble

Respect for wanting to help people out! :) And for valuing your own time too, doing all those steps takes up time. Quick heads up though: the P2 charcoal/red can be had for ~$77 on Amazon with prime shipping and easy replacements, and similar for the black Round at ~$85. So your target demographic might be smaller than expected. If you're already factoring that in, great! And I hope you didn't mind be saying.

u/Enduro_Jeff · 3 pointsr/supermoto

This might not work on all bikes, but I highly recommend looking into it. I bought an otter box defender case. Looks like 26 bucks on amazon. It comes with a belt clip thing. Pry the clip part off the back of this thing, then drill a couple holes in it and zip tie it to your bars, right in between the bar clamps. Line the zip ties up so they are just touching the insides of the clamps so they hold it from sideways motion. Then just clip the phone in. I do this on my WR250r that I off road with. The phone will not come out, even in a crash, and it's low profile with sideways mounting. I flip it to face inward off road, and it's completely protected and still quickly accessible. I know this isn't as easily done on the DRZ as the instrument cluster is kinda in the way... you would need some kinda spacer to hold it up higher. Also recommend get a pebble smart watch and just strap that to your bars. It will give turn by turn directions, and will show texts, and let you send canned texts with just a few simple button clicks. The buttons are huge and easy to press with gloves on.


u/Westwood_1 · 1 pointr/fitbit

You might want to consider Garmin if you're more sporty; they have a very nice line of GPS watches and trackers. Unfortunately, their app (though functional) leaves something to be desired. It's not as intuitive and user-friendly as Fitbit's. I like the Vivoactive HR, which is a little pricier than the Charge 2, but much more full-featured. Be aware, though, the screen is nowhere near as crisp and saturated/bright as it appears in the marketing pictures.

Misfit is also a good one to take a look at. They are currently discounting both their Shine and Flash models ($30 and $12, respectively), and they're functionally very similar to Fitbits and have a nice app, but they come at a fraction of the cost. If you're wondering whether or not you are really into the fitness tracker thing, these would be great, accurate units.

gimme some tech Daddi!

I searched 'programming' in posts in the last month to see who likes stuff that I like and came across /u/ayyyyyyyyyyyyy-lmao's intro post and guess what? We live in the same state, so they must be pretty cool. You should definitely get them The Self Taught Programmer. I've heard that it's a good book, and even though I've been working in tech for the past year I still feel lost enough to have just added it to my wishlist too lol. It's not, uhhh, technically tech so if you want me to choose something more techy then go with the Fitbit! Those things do a lot of cool stuff. I don't like wearing things on my wrist so I'll probably never get one for myself.

u/androidchrist · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I commend you for your weight loss. I'm probably as far along as you are with how much I've lost, but its going slowly for me. I started Weight Watchers last year, got on track, have curbed my eating habits but due to a pinched nerve in my spine I can't do much in the way of physical activity. I mostly do a stationary bike at home as well as moderate free weights. I am a very big guy and could do with losing another 120-150 pounds. At my heaviest I was sitting around 370. I'm probably somewhere around 340-350 right now. It doesn't help that I've been unemployed for a month, because I've spent most of my time driving around looking for work or in front of my computer on various job sites.

Just so you know, it may be expensive but it is well worth it to grab a FitBit. It is a pedometer and so much more. My father has used his (he washed one once and it still worked afterwards, but then he lost it on vacation) for the last year and a half, and with the fitness tracker and sleep tracker built in, alonside his diet and exercise, he's lost damn near 70-80 pounds. He's looking into getting the wristband/watch style FitBit as it is easier to always have on you and less likely to fall off (the original one just clips to clothing wherever you'd like). Depending on his reviews I may grab one at some poing as well to get me a bit more motivated.

Keep doing what you're doing, friend.

The watch that OP's gif is of is a pebble time round, here is the watchface in the gif.

Not sure if it'll work on the OG pebble because it's less powerful and black and white, but they might have backwards compatibility. BTW, pebbles are great, I have the the pebble time and highly recommend it. I mean come on, it's an amazing smartwatch, has a week long battery life, an always on e-paper screen, and is only $124 on Amazon.

  1. This or This

  2. I am on a weight loss journey - I was going to the gym faithfully - everyday, 6 times a week, before a very heartbreaking personal tragedy struck. This was last year, I lost almost 60 lbs at that point. I didnt have the coping mechanisms to not just shut down completely. And thats exactly what I did. I didnt destroy my weight loss completely, ,but because all I would do was stay in bed and cry/sleep, i gained 34 lbs back. For the past two weeks, I have been dead set on getting back on track. I started going to the gym again, one problem. My tennis shoes are a wreck..ive had them for over 6 years. I am a mother to a 5 year old little boy who I need to be alive for, I need to be a mother to him. I want to have the energy to run around the park chasing him, teaching him how to hit a baseball, ride a bike, ALL THAT. I feel tremendous guilt because I cant do that. Not to mention I am a single mom, so there is no "dad" that can do these things for him while I am on the road to getting healthy. I also am trying to save up for a little bit of home equipment (cheap barbells and resistance bands) for home, on the days I have prior obligations with my little one. Im beyond dedicated, and cant wait to see what an amazingly healthy and productive year 2016 will be for me! Its time for me to be the mother my son deserves and ill be damned if anything gets in my way. You would be helping me achieve a lifelong goal. No matter how small, it makes a difference. Thank you! Happy New Year! - Any of the weight loss stuff on my wishlist would be appreciated if by some chance im chosen and you'd rather pick something else. This is so important to me, and I cannot thank you for this oppritunity enough. Just the chance - is appreciated.
u/batfacecatface · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This would really help me to reach my goal. Unfortunately, my health has never really been the highest of my priorities and I have a hard time buying stuff like this for myself. :/ I have about 65 pounds to lose and idk id I can do it but here's hoping. This is a really amazing thing for you to do. Thank you for your generosity.

I'm selling:

[Stair climber] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K6ZURAW/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for sale for $75. See the amazon post for specs and reviews. This works well and it is put together so you can try it out before you buy it. I've upgraded to a treadmill so I no longer need it. It's compact and easy to fold up for storage, so it's good for small spaces.

Fitbit Flex for sale for $35, which includes a package of colored replacement bands, a $15 value alone (wrist bands are the smaller of the 2 wrist sizes). The Flex was bought less than a year ago and still works perfectly. See the amazon post for specs and reviews. I've upgraded to one with a heart rate monitor, so I no longer need it. This comes with the setup instructions, charger, and wrist bands. The black bands are little worn, but others are in good shape.

TV stand with Flat Panel Mount for sale for $50. See the post for specs and reviews. I bought this, but didn't really fit my decor, so put it in storage shortly thereafter. Perfect condition and is assembled.

I live near Oracle and Orange Grove.

Chromecast for the cheap, fun and useful gift. Fitbit Flex for the athletic, weight losing, or simply gadget-loving person. Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for anyone who likes music or flies often. Also pricey... so you better like this person. I would also think things like the GoPro and Nexus 7 would make good gadget gifts. Maybe a Pebble?

u/Berzerker7 · 2 pointsr/AndroidWear

It will work, but as you can see, it has a slotted end, rather than a straight end. The slotted ends are more suitable for ones that require them, like the Pebble Steel or the Moto 360. Otherwise, you'd be putting more pressure on a lower amount of mount points.

I'd recommend something like this instead. It's a similar look, but it has a straight end so that it would be less stressed on the mount point and, IMO, look better. I got this for my LG G Watch R and it works/looks great.

u/Fuctface · 2 pointsr/pebble

Don't consider this as an endorsement (as I don't own either watch yet) but the two I have been considering are the TicWatch E and the AmazFit Bip both have hundreds of positive Amazon reviews (not that it means anything really anymore), are reasonably cheap, and are said to have very long battery times. The one lasts up to a month per charge, the other is supposed to last a year on a replaceable cr2025 battery. (edit: sorry after looking at the watches in my amazon saved list I realize that I was confusing the ticwatch E with another watch).

They do seem to be Android-Centric, but you may find differently in your research (although I doubt that you will find any watch that works particularly well, outside of an Apple watch, Apple is pretty protectionist) at least if your needs are basic you may find one of these ultra-low power devices that will do the trick.

u/ZaggahZiggler · 2 pointsr/C25K

Pebble Smartwatch for $50 this is 1st gen, there is a 2nd, but unfortunately fitbit bought them out so no 3rd in the works. I have both generations and they still work great. waterproof, pairs with phone, can read texts, control music. they arent touch screen, the screen uses tech similar to kindle. nice and simple. also comes with apps that are free and user created so you can have a c25k app on there and have it vibrate if you want to tell you when to walk/run instead of looking.

u/haff34 · 2 pointsr/sleep

I have the Amazfit Bip it’s on sale right now on amazon for $69. It has 30day battery life, tracks heart rate, sleep cycle and is very useful for insights. It tells me what my resting heart rate is after a good nights sleep. It also shows my deep sleep, light sleep, and if I wake up at night. I love the app and how it tells you about every little detail. The app is called Mi Fit. This may not be what you’re looking for but it definitely does do the job for tracking sleep at an affordable cost.

u/pablohoney102 · 1 pointr/AndroidMasterRace

You can definitely get a original Pebble for £50, (not including VAT probably).

I love my Steel version of the original, and the timeline update (yours will ship with it installed) is fantastic.

u/Dannykirk8 · 1 pointr/pebble

Just looked, the $69 dollar ones are now used but wireless cloud is still selling new for $74 and amazon fulfilled for $79. Not bad pricing. The reason Amazon fulfilled is important returns are easy if there is a problem.


u/fresh_owls · 4 pointsr/pebble

I was going to start a new thread, but this one seems close enough. What do y'all think will be the future of the resale value for existing Pebbles?

So far, it looks like used prices on Ebay have taken a decent drop, but they're still holding most of their value, generally. Meanwhile, it looks like new prices haven't updated (at least on Amazon).

Will the value continue to drop forever? Will the end of production drive an increase in demand and price? Will they become vaunted collectors' items, furthered by the open source dev community?? (One can hope.) What do you think?

u/bigdaddydutch · 1 pointr/smartwatch

This is a streeeeeetch it might look a little too bootleg - but you can get Casio watchfaces for the Bip and add a case and change the band . Bip is also pretty basic smartwatch its pretty much a fitness tracker - I say someone will create another casio watchface for their new model the GTS.

It's this one. I have it too and it's fine. Not too much wear or any paint chipping as far as I can tell, but it does feel cheap. Also the clasp is easy to unlock and I've done it multiple times just by accidentally pushing it against my jacket. However I have the G Watch and I'm pretty confident the bracelet will last longer than the watch is supported so w/e.

I posted it elsewhere in this thread, but my Garmin VivoActive gets ~18 days of battery life, has an always-on colored screen, is very thin, and has GPS if you want it. There is a newer version with heart rate monitoring that I bought my dad, and he loves his.

u/BARKINGSP00N · 1 pointr/WearOS

On my ticwatch e there is speech input and a keyboard. It pairs with my pixel and comes pre-installed with a stopwatch app so if you wanted to manually do it and record your time standing in your notes you can, but I'm not so sure about a less tedious way around that. It's also realitivly cheap and works great for me. Hopefully it can work just as well for you if you choose it!


u/Squilly827 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

More info here but in summary, it's like a cross between an Apple Watch and a Fitbit but for Samsung devices only. Fitness tracker, heart rate monitor, call/text notifier w/ quick responses and time of course. Curved OLED display unlike the aforementioned two. I have an Apple Watch for my iPhone already, otherwise I'd be keeping it for myself.

u/blazbluecore · 3 pointsr/navyseals

My personal advice for 1.

First focus on cardio, and build up your cardiovascular fitness. Later on once you're in decent shape, incorporate a ruck regiment.

The following is only my opinion,

[Cheap ruckpack] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Z5F2LQG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Buy yourself backpack with triple military style straps so you dont hurt your back, make sure you're properly strapped.

I wouldn't ruck with more than 10-20 pounds for your backs sake and safety, UNTIL you get closer to ship date and you starting to practice your 9 mil, 44 pounds.

Many guys say not to practice rucking at all to preserve your back.

I would first start just regular rucking, every two weeks.

First week take a small timed, non paced 2 mile ruck. You have a lot of time till you go in 1.5 years. So no need to push yourself very hard till you get closer to the date.

Two weeks later take another hike, 2 mile hike but this time try to push yourself for a better pace at least 20% faster.

Two weeks after that do another 2 miler, but 40% faster.

After that start your 3 mile regular timed, non paced ruck.

And so on and so forth, the whole point of it is to progressively get your body to increase distance, and then increase your pace.

It will take you 27 weeks to complete this, out of the 72 weeks weeks that are in 1.5 years.

To time yourself, and see your pace, you might need one of dem fancy watches.


u/Captain_Midnight · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I picked up this white G-Shock recently. The band is not good, though. The white coating comes off. I'm in the process of replacing it with a white NATO strap.

It's solar-powered, so it will basically never need a battery replacement. The "Multi Band 6" refers to its ability to recieve time sync from six different radio towers placed around the world, which base their own time on a nearby atomic clock. Hence, "solar atomic." It will never poop out, and it's time will always be accurate. Pretty cool technology all around. You can leave it in a drawer for a year and forget about it, and it's back up and running after a few minutes of sunshine. G-Shocks are also highly water resistant -- customarily to 200M, which is quite good for a sub-$100 timepiece.

Arguably stylish digital watches aren't that easy to come by, but here's an interesting one with an e-ink display. And you can always rely on Nixon to do something retro-futuristic.

And of course, there's the Pebble Smartwatch.

You can get downright classy with brushed stainless steel and a genuine leather band.

u/thisdesignup · 5 pointsr/graphic_design

Does he wear watches? As a designer who does not wear watches a watch, that only acts as a watch, would be pretty useless. That said, if hes does wear watches, is he really into technology? Something like this may be cool: http://www.amazon.com/Pebble-Smartwatch-iPhone-Android-Black/dp/B00BKEQBI0


Watches aside, if he is a web designer then he is likely into technology. Any cool little technology can be a fun gift. It all really depends on what he is into, you'll find graphic designers who are into all kinds of different things so it is hard to say one or the other.

u/jt4 · 1 pointr/smartwatch

I found an LG G Watch on Amazon for $145, where other places are selling it for $200. Gizmodo said the watch was fine but the Asus Zenwatch was cheaper (no longer true).

You may also be able to find cheaper Samsung watches, like the Gear Fit ($125), which Gizmodo was pretty adamant against because of what they called "garbage" software.

The reviews are from this article, but I sense some pro-Pebble and anti-Samsung bias in their smartwatch reviews.

u/AmishJoe · 2 pointsr/AndroidWear


That's the band. Looks great online, great price, some mediocre reviews even on this sub, but here's what most don't tell you: it takes a month or more to arrive, mine came in with lots of scuff marks before I even wore it for the first time (thin paint, scuffs off to reveal silver metal below), many of the links are stiff to the point of being uncomfortable... I'm trying to see if they'll send me another, but no reply as of yet. Altogether, pretty much what I'd expect from a $15 band. Some are happy though, so I don't want to bash it too hard.

u/zander8807 · 7 pointsr/AndroidWear

I am really happy with it so far. It looks far more sophisticated than the rubber band. It makes the watch easier to take on/off. Also, the band was relatively cheap!

u/CaptainStarmander · 2 pointsr/pebble

Thank you for the reply. I'm thinking that I'd use it mainly as a remote control for music, since I typically keep my phone in my pocket, I thought that it would be nice to not have to stop jogging or w/e to dig out my phone to skip a track, or pause if I need to speak to someone. The fact that you can check texts and set alarms on it is just a HUGE bonus that I think I'd use somewhat regularly.

Yeah the price point is what really attracted me, the e-ink display I think makes sense for a smartwatch, since it is always on, and doesn't require a backlight the whole time.

I'll have to look into the Pebble 2 (is this a decent one?). I think I've narrowed it down to Pebble Time and Pebble 2 series, and now it's just the cosmetics that have me hesitant to pull the trigger. How does the Pebble Time look/feel? I kind of got the impression that it felt kind of cheap and plasticy, which was a bit of a turn off for me. Kind of like those old calculator watches from 30 years ago.

Is there any specific advantage to the color display? I kind of though that there might be more that you could do with it, but when I think about it, all I really need is text to read, which doesn't need to be in color.

u/almightywhacko · 3 pointsr/pebble

For $99, the Pebble Time is a pretty compelling purchase even with the Pebble 2 and Time 2 coming out this fall. I mean, you'll get all of the features of the newer watches with the exception of a heart rate monitor for half the original price (and current Pebble.com price) of the Classic Pebble you are replacing.

I recommend a Pebble smartwatch or Pebble Steel. I have one and it's awesome. The original comes in many colors, and the Steel comes in two, but the general consensus of /r/Pebble is that the Brushed Stainless Pebble Steel is better than the Black Matte version.

Sometimes retailers have smartwatches on display so that might be a good way to check out all the smartwatches.

I went with a Pebble Time Round because it looked more like a normal watch. I swapped the band with an old leather Swiss band I had.The watchface is customizable.

It looks like it's going for €70 on amazon right now. You can find one for €30-40, if you're okay buying used. I bought used.

I got the LG G watch from Best Buy for $80 including a $50 Google Play credit. Even without the Google Play credit I would have gotten it. I often miss calls and texts and this makes noticing them easier. Also, I like having Google Now on my wrist. It makes setting reminders, sending quick texts, and adding things to my schedule much more convenient.
Back in '86 I bought a Casio Databank watch for $40 so, adjusted for inflation, this was actually cheaper! I got a new band as soon as I could though.

I was initially upset I missed the LG G Watch R sale at T-Mobile but now I'm glad I got this instead of paying $210.

I was really tempted because it seems to be a good running and overall fitness tracker but I really don't like how big it is and the way it'd look so I know I wouldn't wear it over my normal watch.

It's a Garmin Index Smart Scale. I like how fast and accurate it is--it's way better than other electronic scales I have tried--but I also recognize that it is more expensive than the competition while providing fewer features. I often see the Withings scale be recommended as an alternative.

It uses GPS and tracks both your speed and your total mileage. Not much as far as mapping, when you stop tracking it shows a basic map of your route as part of an activity review.Any actual mapping and I use my phone. It has you download an app on your phone that keeps all of your stats organized.

Also you won't believe me but I only charge it every 3-4 weeks. Closer to 4. The display isn't a nice LED, but it uses soooo much less power. I hike 5-10 miles at least 3 times a week. So I'm using the GPS function for 2-3 hours each hike. I'm not an ultramarathoner, I just want to know how far I have gone and it's nice to know my mph to help with setting and keeping a pace.


This is it, $69.99. It's worth it just for the battery life.

u/ValyrianBone · 4 pointsr/ADHD

You need to address this on two levels, the shallow life-hacky one and the deeper emotional "story" one.

Level 1: I set events in my calendar to start 15 minutes before they actually start. I also have a Pebble watch (amazon link) that vibrates against my wrist to rip me out of whatever I'm currently doing. Before important appointments, it will alarm me an hour before and then again every ten minutes (snooze button) until I've made it there. I also talk to myself while I'm getting ready (e.g. "I'm looking for my phone. There. Now I need my keys" etc).

Level 2: I used to loathe waiting. I'd feel exposed and awkward when I'm somewhere early and wait. It felt a creeping terror about the thought of being somewhere early, so I'd do whatever I could to prevent it. Too early = terrible. Subconsciously I was sabotaging myself. I only realized this after some introspection and self-talk. I needed to change my "story". Instead of expecting to think "OMG I'm xx minutes too early what am I going to do now ahhh" I switched to "Ha, beat everyone! Now I get to be smug about it". I know smugness is not the best emotion, but it's the flipside of feeling remorseful for being late, so it was available in my mind (and I still treated everyone politely, of course, it was just an internal thing).
With the 15-minute change, I got to experience being early a few times (not 15 minutes early, more like 5 minutes early). I tried to revel in covertly feeling smug until it was something like a treat to look forward to and it eliminated the anxiety about being too early.

This one would be good enough for me, atleast for what I would use(time, messages, notifications etc). I am fully aware of non-existent support and I quite like the looks.

u/Ganrokh · 1 pointr/TheSilphRoad

The cheapest WearOS watch is probably the Ticwatch E. It's a Smartwatch that was kickstarted last year to be a "budget" WearOS watch. I bought it for my fiance last Valentine's Day. She loves it. The only thing that's odd about it is that it feel extremely lightweight for a smartwatch. She sometimes forgets that she's wearing it. She likes that, but it's odd to me because I like feeling a little bit of weight on my wrist lol.


u/ironmountain · 1 pointr/pebble

Still available here - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0106IS5XY

I've bought two from that link. First one has replaced my OG Pebble that is still working perfectly. Second is a backup. :)

u/SethLe · 7 pointsr/pebble

All pebble watches allow you to set reminders and you can access the Pebble app store which has a decent free pomodoro app (used it in med school)

Pebble Time: https://www.amazon.com/Pebble-Technology-Corp-501-00020-Smartwatch/dp/B0106IS5XY

$70, 3-4 day battery life

Color display, always on

Timeline functionality for scheduling

Pebble Time Round: https://www.amazon.com/Pebble-Time-Round-Smartwatch-Refurbished/dp/B01F9BIMOA?th=1

$100, 1-2 day battery life, 15min charge time

All the same features as Pebble Time

Looks better (subjective)

I own both watches and I use the PTR for my day to day and switch to my Pebble Time for weekend trips or vacations.

Huawei makes a pretty nice looking smartwatch as well.

u/raptor102888 · 1 pointr/moto360

Have you considered the Huawei Watch instead? It's better than the 360 in a lot of ways, more future-proof, and $250 is a great price for it.

It's just Amazons way of getting you the product fastest. Go to more sellers and order it directly from Amazon. Or just go to https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B013LKLIB0/ref=olp_f_new?ie=UTF8&f_new=true&f_primeEligible=true link.

Add the official Amazon one in your cart for $164, you may just have to wait a couple of extra days to get it. It's also possible they will cancel the order, but this is the best option.

u/BlankBB · 2 pointsr/AndroidWear

Looks like it is on sale on Amazon Prime as well for $199:

EDIT: Looks like it is only for the Stainless Steel witl black leather model

u/TheManchesterAvenger · 1 pointr/AndroidWear

It was a £10 one from Amazon. Changing it is the same as a regular watch - it's best using a spring bar tool (although I'm sure it's possible without).

If you don't want to do it yourself, you can ask for a jewelry shop. They'll charge, but you have to buy a special tool anyway (I opted to do it myself as I don't have time to visit a store for a while).

I’ve had fitbits, Apple watches, and this garmin. I couldn’t recommend it more.

Even though messaging is restricted, if you're on Verizon or att, they do let you voice reply which works pretty well. I've only had my PT for a few days and I've come to use Thaf when I'm driving or doing something else. It'll send that person a normal text but that reply will not show in your messages app, so it looks like a one way conversation. Groupon has them for cheap refurb or you can go through Amazon here and here

So I purchased this band. I took a grinder and cut the little slit that is needed in the middle so it would fit.
This is what I had to grind. super easy, took less than 5 minutes to do. You can't even see the cut I made since it sits under the cover.

$99 for the fitbit flex

it has a usb fob that will sync the data wirelessly whenever you are within 20 ft of your computer. You can get extra usb fobs to use in other computers.

It syncs to the website, and still very worth it. I like the immediate feedback of having it on my smartphone, but it can also be useful having the computer only version.

It also comes with the small AND the large wristband. And it's waterproof.

u/mucoromycotina · 3 pointsr/AndroidWear

Amazon has the Ticwatch E for $128 with a promotion for a free watch band. The watch band colors are Black, Grey, White, and Mint. You just have to add both items to your cart and the watch band will be free at checkout.

The promotion also applies to the Ticwatch S. No idea when the promotion will end.

u/PCBreakdown · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm saving up for a Fitbit Flex. It's like a pedometer, sleep tracker, alarm clock, bracelet and more all in one. I want it sooooo bad, but I just can't justify shelling out almost $100 all at once on something for myself. Even if it would help me achieve my fitness goals easier. I get the mommy guilt if I buy anything more than $20 for myself.

u/hatrickboy09 · 28 pointsr/gadgets

I've been wearing the amazefit bip for 2 months now. I've loved it. Always on display, 26 days of batter life, notifications, and customizable faces. Also its only $80 which was huge for me.

u/noman924 · 3 pointsr/techwearclothing

It's actually an Amazfit Bip with a metal band. It's one of the best budget watches imo. The battery lasts like a month without needing to be charged!

i have this one - also in silver.
I find it more comfortable than the official pebble steel band because it is more flexible and not so rigid.

The Alcatel Watch is supposed to be released "mid-March" (so, a couple weeks from now?) and will retail at $150. It's a touchscreen which supports both Android and iOS. It's a proprietary OS with a companion phone app but apparently no 3rd-party appstore (at this time?) but it does seem to have a comprehensive array of apps preinstalled and I'm not sure what 3rd-party apps you'd really need - especially considering the price:


Pebble just announce a new series called Pebble Time and you can get the base model for $179 on kickstarter right now:

The original pebble can be had for $99 as well:

u/chowder007 · 1 pointr/AndroidWear

Thanks. I found that but that was last updated in March. So thats really my only options then?

And if I am looking that up correctly it looks like this watch is the cheapest option? https://www.amazon.com/Huawei-Watch-Black-Stainless-Warranty/dp/B013LKLI9C/ref=sr_1_2?s=wearable-tech&ie=UTF8&qid=1496765725&sr=1-2&keywords=Huawei+Watch+2

I don't know how much it would take to break one, but it would easily survive a 5 ft. drop. It's sturdy. It's also waterproof--you can wear it in the shower or on the beach. I just changed my watch band last night, so they're definitely swappable!

A camera sounds neat, but I'm not ready to be making calls with my watch yet so it's not a feature for me. Basically, my opinion is calls are what phones are for.

For the Black/Black it's back up to $249.99. But I've been eying it for a while, and up until yesterday it was $349.99.

It still dropped $100 today. Cheapest it has ever been on Amazon.


I snagged one :) AW here I come!

u/pelvicmomentum · 1 pointr/Watches

This is the closest you'll get under a few hundred dollars. However a black bracelet like this or this one for a bit more would look much nicer. Sony's bracelet is too large for your watch, so it will not fit. The g watch's lugs are 22mm wide, while the sw2's are 24mm wide.

You can buy the Pebble Time for 65€ including free shipping to the Netherlands at Amazon Germany: https://www.amazon.de/Pebble-Time-Smart-Watch-schwarz/dp/B0106IS5XY. Might save a few bucks if you also check Amazon UK at time of buying.
It's not yet as cheap as some of the American posts we've seen here, but I think it's a fair price. I'm even thinking about buying one ahead to have one in stock when mine will eventually (in some years) have lost its life.

u/raineth · 2 pointsr/pebble

I've have exactly the same band for about 9 months, and I really like it as well. I couldn't find it on eBay at the time -- I found it on Amazon.

I took a couple of pictures: front, side (slightly potato, phone cameras at night...)

Be aware though, it's not as black as the Amazon picture. At the right angle, it's a chocolate color. I'm pleased with it though.

This is the band I have .https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DKYC7TK/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've had it for 11 months now and wear it everyday, including my shifts in a restaurant, exposing it to high and extreme low temperatures, prolonged periods of water exposure, oil and grease, and it's held up amazing. Just a quick spray and a cleaning with a toothpick every once and a while and its good as new basically. Will upload pictures in a minute.

What are you looking for? I personally don't use a smart watch any longer since I was unhappy with battery life.

If I was going to go for a cost effective answer and battery life this is what I would get. 30 days between charge

Interested in buying a Fitbit (or any decent fitness tracker) for my GF's father, but he wears a watch. I'm nervous he won't want to wear it.

Anyone have any experience how these pair with a watch? I think that he'll think it's a little weird if he has two bracelets on and they both show time and possibly discourage him. I know the Flex is smaller and has minimal display, but we are also considering the larger Charge.
Any recommendations on products welcomed! Thank you.

u/PiercingHeavens · 1 pointr/AndroidWear

This has held up very well for me and since you have a G watch R you won't have that gap in the watch band where it connects to the watch.

It's VERY expensive but VirZoom is for sure a work out game if you get the Bike that comes with it.


I can tell you that you quickly lose track of time and get a work out in before you know it. If you decide to do any activity in the headset that will cause you to sweat, I Highly suggest you get some kind of work out head band to limit the buildup of crud on your head set. Something simple like this does the trick for me,
