Might be a misprint because the white is still £100 but worth a go non the less

How is the Android software on these these days? I had to return my first gen Pebble as it wouldn't stay paired with the Moto G I had at the time, the software was just awful. All Pebble would ever suggest is "remove and reinstall the software, re-pair the Bluetooth connection, restore the firmware". That gets tiresome after the fifth time in one day...
I have one and it's fantastic. It's such a useful device, for checking notifications, turning on/off WiFi, data etc with dashboard, using it for navigation with NavMe and as a speedometer while cycling. There are no pairing issues that I experience. I love it!
P.S. heat added OP, this is a fantasticprice for brand new.
Awesome find. Cheers OP. My first Smart watch, suspect it won't be my last...
been thinking about getting one from Amazon for £64 but this is a perfect price thanks op

​ it's not android software it's pebble own OS, I have a steel and works perfect with my android phone.
Use full first smartwatch, week long charge, golf gps app, fitness app and waterproof. Might have wait a couple of years till the big boys catch up.
Thanks OP ordered
Does this link with whatsapp notifications and change songs on Spotify?

Yes- you can receive notification like whatsup and Facebook, etc... as long you receive them on the mobile
No- doesn't change songs on Spotify - as far I know no smartwatch can change music on Spotify, but it does change music for the native music app
Not got the best reviews.
Does it have GPS for hiking or anything as info is pretty limited too.
How pebble works with iOS ? Anyone have some experiance ? Many thanks
thanks just ordered one.
Would this be any good for a 12 year old? Thank you for any help

Sorry, I didn't review or give more details about the watch as I didn't have a time, and tbh I'm not the best one to ask about a review. However, you can look on youtube about the review as it's in more details there. and no it doesn't have GPS

brilliant​ Many Thanks
These are only worth £40 now, they aren't the best looking watch and are starting to look dated.
Thank you. Heat added!
I have one of these working with an iPhone and think it's great. The one thing you have to remember is to keep the pebble app running in the background otherwise some apps don't work which require an Internet connection through your phone. I use mine for all notifications as all of them that pop up on your phone come through, from messages to notifications about Apple Pay. Battery easily lasts me 6-7 days
How well does this integrate with Strava? Will it show current pace etc. while running?
Still using my original Pebble with my iPhone, great bit of kit. It's three years old but I still get a full week out of it.

Might make a move to an Apple Watch soon, only thing putting me off is the battery life.
Great. Just reserved one as a surprise for my son. Makes a change from all the xbox games he's asked for
thanks! ordered!

I'm searching through the Pebble app store and I can't see anything that works with Strava.
There is a really good Endomondo App, and Runkeeper will update the Pebble display directly without need for an app.
reserved, thankyou
Cheers UKM8 Have some HEAT

The only thing I don't like about the original Pebble is its appearance, otherwise I find the Pebbles to be the best functional smartwatches. They tend to lack the gimmicks of the more expensive watches, but get the fundamentals right - like battery life. I used the original Pebble for 2 years, now I'm using a Pebble Time. I'm not impressed by the new Pebble round, which has sacrificed battery life for questionable aesthetics.

There is no GPS integrated into the watch, but it is designed to be paired with a phone and it will use the phone GPS over Bluetooth and can display compass headings, maps and other GPS stuff just fine using dozens of available apps that you can load onto the watch.

Best budget smartwatch you can buy at this price new.

Looks like a toy though so don't expect compliments, 8 app limit (including watchfaces) can be frustrating too.

Should also be getting the Timeline interface from the newer Pebble Time by the end of the year.

​ yes it does for both, you configure spotify in the pebble app and you control it with the default music app, you have to switch on device broadcast status in Spotify to see song titles though.
great watch but as others say, doesn't look good. It does have a standard watch strap size, 21mm I think, so you can just buy a new strap. I bought a new metal one add I didn't get on with the rubber one.

I meant, the software that you run on your Android phone to pair with the Pebble. Does it still regularly lose connection with the watch?

Never had any connection losses with mine, I have a Note II, the only issue I had was when leaving the phone in a locker at work and coming back to it required a disable/enable, but it does the same with Android Wear, assume its a battery saving thing on the phone.
