  • Amazon Assistant coupon can be used for 5 more USD savings

  • Such a massive bezel the screen is just a small one in the middle terrible design

  • Will this get Android Wear 2?

  • BOUGHT ONE FOR MY 14 YRS OLD BOY AS XMAS GIFT (EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT BE A FEW DAYS LATE FOR XMAS). NO $5 DISCOUNT GOT AS I AM A REGULAR AMAZON US USER ALREADY. THANKS OP!

  • This has a speaker ☺

  • Whats the normal price?

  • With pebble bankruptcy, I think smart watch has no future in the short term. Maybe another 10 years. Short Battery is one of the reason

    • Fitbit are taking the best from Pebble to incorporate into their own products.

    • Android Wear and Apple watches are better in every way except battery life. They are a perfect extension of your phone, pebbles weren't.

    • Maybe, maybe not. Though, the problem with Pebble was that, its profit margin in my opinion was too small for it to sustain itself. Also, I think a lot of people by Smartwatches to be a replacement for their watches, and watches nowadays are an accessory more than a time telling device. Pebble's design I think was not in line with that.

      As for the battery life, I can't comment much. I think Snapdragon Wear 2100 is kinda lacklustre (it's Snapdragon 400, modified). Android wear I've heard is not as good as Tizen or WatchOS with battery. Those might be why Zenwatch 3 against Gear S3 (which has 10%~12% more battery, 340mah vs 380mah) lasts one to two days less comparing the values I've seen on reviews.

      Though whether battery life is the main thing that holds smartwatches down? Pebble went down first and it had the best battery life out of all the options, so yeah.

      • "pebble went down first and it had the best battery life out of all the options, so yeah."
        nah you forget pebble screen is ugly and not amoled. truly, the real problem is battery we cant have colour screen with even decent battery life. no point of creating other things they all will just become "good gadgets for few months then people tired of keep recharging every night"

        • From my last comment:

          "I think a lot of people by Smartwatches to be a replacement for their watches, and watches nowadays are an accessory more than a time telling device. Pebble's design I think was not in line with that."

          I simply don't agree with the idea that battery is the only reason. If it were the only reason, other smartwatches would've gone down first. In other words, if people wanted a smartwatch to last long and if that was their only priority, then Pebble wouldn't be the one to go down before others. I think Pebble going down like how it did supports the idea that people are willing to charge their devices every night than having something like Pebble.

          I of course, wouldn't call it a conclusive evidence. It'd be a support at best.

      • Fitbit acquired pebble, and they seem to be selling lots https://backchannel.com/the-real-story-behind-pebbles-demise...

        Apple’s emphasis on fashion and Pebble’s on productivity and third-party innovation were costly detours—the smartwatch market is rooted in health and fitness.

        • Eh, I am kinda hoping for Fitbit to come up with Fitbit "watch", if you know what I mean. More options mean more fun watching the market come up with new products.

          It's kinda pity though, I think Pebble Round 2 had potentials. Pebble Round didn't look like a proper watch to me when I saw one, even though it was as thin as one. I think that irk was from the bezel and the display, which 2 would've fixed a lot.

          Pebble Core would've been an interesting product… I think it would've been iPod Shuffle of the future (with streaming and GPS).

    • Battery life is definitely what is killing smart watch. People have enough devices to charge already

    • I dont think battery life is going to take any giant leaps soon. There are only so many chemical reactions that produce valent electrons, and we already know all of them.

      People have been talking about crystal cells, but even then, its not a huge advance.

      Probably the only thing that would improve things dramatically would be an advance on miniaturised fuel cells.

  • as soon as they make a decent waterproof smart health watch, let me know.

  • When was the zenwatch 2 released?

  • is this better than the moto 360 watch from the other day?

  • Oh no I just purchased this last week and now a price drop….I have a Citibank Platinum card that comes with purchase protection but it only covers difference over $75…Tough luck!!!!

      Talk to Amazon to get price difference refunded.

  • onli used to a round watch, pass.

  • lol ASUS

  • Belatedly - great deal and great timing (from my perspective) with the demise of Pebble. Had never considered a Zenwatch but ended up ordering one to replace my moribund Pebble Steel.
