Good deal for a second hand smart watch, just picked one up myself at this price as a test to see wether I would benefit from the utility of one.

And did you find much utility for it?

Still waiting for it to arrive in the post, will know soon but at this price I couldn't resist!

Used not refurb? Not sure on something someone has sweat in...

Says it has been cleaned, of data.
No mention of cleaned as such, let us know could be a bargain if it doesn't smell of sweat or have dead skin on it.

They're waterproof so a good scrub and clean should resolve any issues I would imagine

​Or pubed in

Not a bad shout for a tryout, but these often have an issue with screen 'tearing' on the display, and this becomes a more common issue as they get older. Doesn't happen to all of them of course, but it is common. Google it.

If you're looking for long-term use and not a try out, I'd get a new one so you have the free two year manufacturer's warranty.

I've had 2 replacements due to the 'tearing' issue. I also had to ditch the rubber strap as it gave me a rash/dried skin.

Your only supposed to put them around your wrist. Lol

Price is 21.99 now

Mine latest 6 months before screen tearing last week, but a great smartwatch.

I'd be careful buying Pebbles at the moment as they're apparently in the process of being bought by Fitbit. Apparently Fitbit aren't interested in continuing to make Pebbles so things are a little up in the air at the moment. e.g. The official Pebble store lists *everything* as out of stock...

Screen tearing for me too. I tried the fixes inc the sponge, worked for a few weeks then got worse. Ended up binning the watch

To 5 atm they are.

21.99 now plus 11.99 postage... would have taken a punt at 21.99 but postage too high

​I wear mine in the swimming pool without issue!

My first 1st-gen Pebble (bought in last year's Black Friday sales on Amazon) suffered from screen tearing within minutes of use, but the replacement has lasted so far - I hope I haven't just jinxed it!

good deal at 19.99 btw

​It's showing as "fast 'n free" postage for me - are you in the Channel Islands or somewhere like that?

​The item description says it's been fully sanitised.

saucy **** has increased the price to 21.99

My Pebble is almost 2 years old. Screen tearing happened after about 18 months so I tried the fix (small piece of cardboard between the circuit board and the back casing) and it's been fine for almost 6 months.

Bought one last year wore for a while but went back to my good old Casio, great deal at this price though it's an excellent watch just having to charge etc was a bit annoying for me.

​Yep that's it, I'm in county Antrim hence the silly price for postage. Good price at 21.99 nevertheless - voting hot

£21 now.

Showing £11.99 postage for me 3hrs ago when I was @ Birmingham Airport and it still is now I'm in Scotland

It's a used £20 watch, you don't need to be 'careful'.

​showed as 11.99 until i logged out of eBay - it then showed as free. When I logged back in it went back to 11.99

To call this a smartwatch is a massive overstatement.

I considered one until I saw the screenshots of the condition most will arrive in (It looks like most of them have been VERY well used)

I'm a fan of Pebbles, £20 is a bargain I was just warning people that the company and hence support was a little uncertain at the moment. More to do with support than value.

​Thanks that worked for me so I took a punt

They don't do anything do they?

What is sad is that my Pebble Time Steel will stop working at some point... it's like finding out a loved one has a terminal illness. Got to make every day count so will be wearing it to bed and in the shower from now on.

Was looking to order one as a little present for my son for Christmas. Looking at this as I'm not sure how well he will look after it or how much he will use it so thought for this price it might be worth a shot. Has anyone had one yet and able to tell me how bad the condition is ?
