LOL. I'm going to guess you don't have one?

Your comment would be akin to saying "Shouldn't TI-83 calculators be $10 by now?"

Their isn't a smart watch out right now that does what the pebble does as efficiently for both Android and Apple based phones. No smart watch has the battery life or is compatible with as many devices as these. If they weren't selling well they would have dropped the price a long time ago like every other smart watch released in the past two years has had to do.

no i dont own a pebble, ive owned a sony smartwatch for 2 years (since before these even existed). the price of the smartwatch (and 2) have come down considerably since they were released. should be the same with this product. it has the slowest processor, cheapest design (all plastic), lowest cost screen, and very basic featureset. when compared to other watches that have dropped to around $100 i feel like this should be $50 by now.

the sony got no press, not even advertising. it has just as good battery life, and is compatible with any android phone (got it no apple support). i think pebble is playing it smart, since they are taking their time coming out with another product (steel doesnt count, same watch), but i think consumers should be expecting a lower price than $100 'on sale'


and yes. those calculators SHOULD be like $20. akin, not because they are 'old', but because i understand what hardware lives inside and what the BOM is.

I don't have a sony smart watch but I can promise you, even with mods, it doesn't have the battery life of a pebble. It also didn't have the commerical success of a pebble (right or wrong). Is it compatible with iOS devices out of the box?

I don't think the original Pebble is a $150 device but they are obviously selling well enough where they haven't found the need to put their product on a fire sale like Sony Samsung and LG all had to do with their watches.

on my original smartwatch i could almost get 12 days when turning it off at night. smartwatch 2 i can muster 7. fine by me!

very little 'success' in the eyes of the public/commercial but chock full of utility and a healthy amount of apps/features (especially for the money!). sony didnt market this thing at all.

does not work with iOS, major selling point for pebble.

i agree with you (though im not sure they are selling all that well), but i still think it should be $50. ok fine. $75. Smilie

I think it just comes down to the pebble does a little but does that little very well and those basic things are the foundation of what a smart watch should be used for (telling time and accepting "push" alerts).

While Sony, Samsung, Motorola, etc have put out more flash and better technology not everyone is looking to have a full fledged mini computer on their wrist.

At some point the market will correct itself I'm sure and these will be extremely outdated.

i think youre mosty right,but wrong about the sony. its what they got right too.

noone gives them credit because noone used them. before the wave of 'new' smartwatches that all sucked came out and everyone assumed the sony was no better. its very much a 'dumb' smartwatch and is nearly identical to the pebble as far as that 'foundation' of what it should do. it doesnt have some fancy dual core processor, and heaps of ram and a huge bright screen.

i think of it much like the pebble, but instead of active design with hard buttons to interface, its a more attractive watch (that doesnt look like a toy), with a color touchscreen (and one button) as inputs. changes the UX in many ways, some good, some bad, depends on the user application.

Too bad Amazon probably won't price match. All my gift cards are with them.
