After a brief two and a half month wait my Pebble finally arrived on my desk in London. The spontaneous-purchase feeling had completely worn off and I was fairly disinterested in it after seeing dozens of Americans posting their’s online months ago. I opened the box anyway and wasn’t disappointed.

In my opinion photos of it illustrate yet another giant watch which only looks normal on the wrists of the obese. Having especially slender wrists I’m used to a terrible watch fit. But this was different.

The smartwatch is tiny. I notice it as much as my little Casio A163WA-1QES.

You really don’t expect a smartwatch to make much of a difference to your notification regime. I honestly only expected to use it as a glorified weather checking device. But only having to look down to read social media updates is a dream.

The UI though often glitchy is obvious to understand. Those who have ever used a sports watch will understand the pain of poorly designed watch UI.

A good companion to your phone. A life ruiner. But an extra scratch to your itch.
