I know this is out of support etc but I've taken a punt for £35.

Current cheapest alternative looks to be £40 on Argos.

Also just spotted they have 2 orange ones for £32.99 if you fancy one of those.
Do these things tell the time as well?

It seems it does. Even more of a bargain!
Oh and pink
What's next, Betamax deals?
Works with my fitness app!

I'm in.
Great price. Really useful as an extension for your notifications. Battery lasts well over a week, too. No support any more, but I really find mine useful.
does it just send notifications for texts or does it actually let you read them? if just the former, then better of with mi band 2!
Heat added. Pick mine up new for £50 2 years ago. Still works a charm with the iPhone 6. Also works well in the swimming pool. Love the fact that pebble still do major updates despite the fact that it's quite old.

It lets you read texts and emails
These things are brilliant. I have an app on mine which reminds me not to buy useless sh1t each morning.
Have to agree with some of these comments. The e-Ink display lets me charge it once every 10 days or so, instead of the obligatory daily charge my Moto 360 requires. You can even go on holiday without taking your Pebble charger. It has an always on display so no need for ambient mode and shaking the hand several times to tell the time!

It's basic, but the basics are done right. Picked up mine for £25 on ebay about a year ago and still going strong, hasn't left my wrist since. The Moto360 is rarely used.

Shame Pebble went under and from what I can see Fitbit acquired them only for their IP. However, basic time and notifications do not require server side functionality and from some of the talk on the Forums it appears there's a possibility the Pebble back-end functions will be open sourced and supported by the community beyond 2017.

Agreed with others that this is good for the basics, really liked mine when I had one. However, I've gone through 4 (1x pebble original, 2x pebble steel, 1x pebble time) and they all somehow managed to develop faults (screen tearing, bootloop, screen tearing, bootloop - although the Time was from Amazon Warehouse so might have been faulty beforehand) - I was probably super unlucky, but just FYI...

However, its fulfilled by Amazon, so worse comes to worse you can return it within a year so not bad!

Lets you read messages! even lets you send basic preset replies from memory.
I found that the screen on mine scratched really easily, I upgraded to the time steel, which seems more resilient.

this post got me looking at the pebble 2 as well... does anyone know whether the pebble 2 is backwards compatible with classic apps?
I've always fancied one and purchased one from argos a few weeks ago. It was surprisingly good although felt like a child's watch, so I returned it and went for the pebble time steel. I absolutely love it. I've owned various smart watches in the past (though not the iwatch) and the best one was my Sony smart watch 3, with the longest (at least 3 day) battery life. I changed the strap to seel one from ebay for only £7 and must confess that, in my opinion, this is the best smart watch around. It works just like any other smart watch, alerting you to notifications, including WhatsApp allows use of navigation, has voice recognition to reply to messages, etc. However the best bit is the battery like - a solid*(minimum) 7 days (I don't seem to get the 10 days that they advertise. I hope this help anyone that is considering one of these.
Pebble: The unwanted dumbass child product that FitBit didn't want. Save your £35 and spend it on something useful, like a chocolate teapot. (you can eat the chocolate).

For the lovers who bought one ... I ended up buying the pebble 2 from argos on ebay but also ordered a wide leather strap and 'Hammer' strap from Richard Tracey Brand in the states which arrived yesterday and both look awesome, much better than the stock strap:
