It took a while but it’s finally here. After opening up to all Android (non-Galaxy) devices, the latest Samsung smartwatches and fitness band are now compatible on Apple’s iOS.
Smartwatch maker Pebble was in dire straits this past year. Despite the resounding popularity of their new wearables (which raised almost USD13 million on Kickstarter), a report surfaced earlier this month that the company was going to be sold to Fitbit.
However, a recent report also states that this deal would result in the cancellation of Pebble’s Time 2 and the Pebble Core.
I love rooting for the underdog. That’s probably why I like Pebble so much…even though I’ve never owned one before. But now, it looks like the company’s underdog story is coming to an end.
After a rough patch, the e-paper smartwatch company looks poised to be bought and absorbed by fitness wearable giant Fitbit.
Smartwatches don’t do enough for me. They’ve always been this thing that costs as much as a smartphone but can’t do as much as a smartphone. I guess the benefit is that it lives on your wrist which makes it really portable, but is that enough to justify dropping thousands on one of these things? No, not to me at least.
But, I understand that there’s a demand for a smartwatch. Partly because it can come in handy, but mostly because people think it’s really cool. Well, if you cool is what you’re after and you don’t want to break your bank, Samsung’s new Gear S3 is definitely a device you should consider.
