I wouldn't call it a "fitness smartwatch" personally as it's so much more than that.

Got a red pebble time myself but heated for the price as it's a great starter smartwatch.

If you're not fussed about it being new, CEX sell these ones for £35 quid.

I'm after a smartwatch with gps around this price. any ideas??

You need to shop in cloud cuckoo land to get that........

The cheapest UK purchased GPS smartwatch is made by Polar (M400) & retails for around £130......that is a budget model ......most decent GPS smartwatches start around £200 to about £400

You might get something cheap & unreliable unbranded from China for £70+

Or Sony Smartwatch 3 which has been as low as £80 and £100 now.

Sony smartwatch any good. Do I need a Sony phone??

Also the lack of heart rate monitor (although can you add a chest strap?) means I wouldn't emphasise the fitness aspect strongly.

No, android or iphone but android wear works a lot better with android phones.

pebble time 2 is out soon-ish as well. bigger screen and 10 day battery life so these originals might drop in price even further

Tomtom runner

Got mine for 45 new off here but might be a bit more but good for tracking gps for running

Had it but screen stopped working after 11 months, replaced and then again after a months. Returned, refunded and now I'm happy owner of Sony smartwatch 3

I have a Sony smart watch 3 from Very I got for around £60 with a voucher (think it was £89 at the time) about 4 months ago, works great and has gps. Fantastic for the price would recommend .

Sony SW3 is an Android wear, works with any android phone.
I have SW3 since last 4 months. Excellent smart + fitness watch. Inbuilt gps that works perfectly.
Does everything that it says on the tin.

GPS is essential in any watch if you want to use as fitness watch, might as well spend bit more and buy one with gps.

Advice please, can you play games and apps with this using an iPhone se, thinking now to get son this for xmas but I'm aware these watches don't play ball very well on iPhone, he's only 11 so the odd game and notification would be good. Much appreciated.

@frostyclock not great for games, there are a few games you can download but very basic, but a great starter smart watch. Notifications from text, email, incoming calls and social media. Waterproof for swimming. 7 day battery life. Remotely Control Spotify or other music on his phone remotely whilst it's charging or in a speaker dock.
I've used mine with android and iPhone without issues

Thanks for that, think i will order this as great price range for his age. He is using my old U80 cheap smartwatch but its next to useless on iPhone.

I am just started the process with support about my screen on my classic pebble. Was yours a display tearing issue?

Ordered, thanks OP.

Argh just paid £60 for one direct from Pebble.

​Yes, even new replaced had exactly the same issue after just 1 month. Amazon refunded without any problem

Gotta chime in on the display problem. First one started blinking uncontrollably, got it exchanged by pebble. Second one developed a fault after 4 months, this time around the screen falls to pixels. (applying pressure to the screen fixes it temporarily.

I think I'll wait for the pebble time two to replace it. I love my pebble but these screen issues almost ruined it for me.

I loved my pebble until I had to speak to their customer service.

Firstly after a week of using it I found the rubber strap was rubbing on my arm and took the top layer of skin off under the strap. I asked if this was normal and was told "yes, if you want to stop the rubbing we suggest you buy a better strap for it".

Then after a bout 6 month the battery just went to crap, wouldnt last more than 2 days, if that. After about 10 emails back and forward I was told "we cant guarantee the battery life for the original pebble after the updates and if you have a full set of apps on the watch"

I went out and bought a fitbit and the pebble has been in my draw ever since.

I had the original pebble for a while and didn't have any issues with it. Makes me wonder if a bad batch of them made it out into the wild.

I've recently bought my teenage son one of these. He loves it. It's proven really useful for calendar events and texts as sometimes his phone is in a bag on silent. No more missed out of class lessons or travel updates.

I have this watch. Love it. Works like a charm. I bought it for £50 a while ago. Point of note, however, it's not a "fitness" watch. It doesn't sense any vital signs or measure steps.

The notifications aspect of it is one of the main things I like about it - quick glance at your wrist to see what's going on and on you go. No fishing your phone out of your pocket (or bag :)) every time.

The main thing I like about it is the ability to control the music player remotely as well. I tend to use my iPhone more to listen to music on the go and it's an absolute godsend, espcially if you're on a crowded bus or train.

I've got a few apps installed on mine but not many - got a handy live football results app which is good for keeping up with current scores.

I had the exact same problem and assumed allergic reaction to rubber but never had that problem before so replaced strap with a canvas one.

My 1st pebble got the screen issue after a couple of months so was replaced, the 2nd one started not holding charge for more than a day and now the 3rd is having the screen issues.

Decent price ty toxic. Looking for a band/watch that includes music..any suggestions welcome.

The battery on my time steel went to pot after only a couple of months. Can't fault their support as they'd sorted a replacement within a week.

As far as GPS watches I think the pebble 2 may be coming with one. Personally I have a dedicated sports watch for this purpose. Not sure I'd want my day watch sweated on from a long race !

Amazing deal, but you need good eyesight to use the pebble classic to its full extent.
I love mine, but mainly use it to control my phone audio or to answer my phone (I have phone set to speaker phone)
Its never off my wrist even in the bath! It looks like the day I bought it when they first came out

It does measure steps, install the Misfit app (others may well be available too).

The pebble is a game changer for me. Nothing fancy, but it changed the way I use my iPhone. No more dragging it out of the pocket to see what that buzz was... oh it's just spam. And I don't miss calls or texts any more. And I can control music playback easily no matter what I'm doing. I love it to bits and wouldn't be without one now; really would like a Time 2, but they're so expensive - it'll be a long while before I upgrade.

Sony SW3, which was around £65 at some point?

Worth 50 and I bought one last time it was this price. Useful and convenient and looks nice, the only one with decent battery life. Unfortunately not long before you will experience problems, screen goes corrupt, send it back and replacement, screen goes bad again etc.

never happened with my classic ..

Was gonna pick one up today but reading this toooooo many issues ongoing so will give it a miss, shame as its a great price.

I've had a Sony SW3 since they where released and i seriously would not be without it.. i mostly use mine for Running, Cycling and listening to music while i do both of those. Plus there is loads more stuff you can do with it, i've saw it recently for as low as £60.

£47 from Tesco Direct.

You know you could have gotten a pebble 2 for like 20 quid as they had a voucher deal with 10% off last month?

These are cheap because the pebble 2 that is an all round upgrade in every aspect and including a version with a HR sensor is coming in at the 90-100 and is out now(deliveries are this month). I'm upgrading my time to the new version, but honestly given they have released basically a 1:1 upgrade of the classic pebble it's not at all worth buying one for this price given you are only 20-30 quid less than the new ones.

As far as I'm concerned it's the only real fitness watch even without the HR sensor. Unlike all the other smart and fitness watches I've tried and seen pebbles are waterproof. They work great in the pool or out in open water, and they are fantastic if you are doing anything in the water as it frees you from having to risk an expensive phone in your pocket.

Sorry, are you saying a Pebble 2 for £20 or for £20 more than the Pebble Classic?

That 10% deal is where I got the Pebble classic, I spotted the deal on here for the Pebble 2 for like £80 if I recall, then saw the site had the classic for £60. It was a gift and I only love that person £60 worth.
