So love Pebble (Still use my Pebble Steel).

The servers that support a lot of the Pebble functionality are going away later this year (June or July I think). So unless you are willing to put some work in and switch to Rebble or another alternative, the watch will not have much functionality.

What an overblown comment.

Yes, Fitbit is shutting down the Pebble servers later this summer, but that doesn't mean that your text/call notifications and other functionality will stop working. Only things like the timeline, voice support, and a few other things are going away. It's not like your watch will completely stop telling time or shut down.

Furthermore, there is a community called Rebble that is working alongside Fitbit to approve 3rd-party firmware to keep every single aspect of the current Pebble functionality alive and well, including all those listed above, and may even get Google-powered voice recognition.

Pebble is far from dead.

Not dead, meant outdated hence the blackberry 8800 reference.
When the Alcatel Onetouch is 49 dollars or lower when on sale, why would anyone buy this / go through the trouble of installing/configuring third party firmware ?

Had two pebbles. One was used daily for over a year and the other sat in a desk unused. Both now have a similar screen dysfunction . Wtf. Personally I would avoid unless you wanna do third party loading.

Great battery life for a smart watch. This model does have screen tearing though. There's YouTube videos on how to fix it by adding more cushions with paper.

The original Pebble and the Pebble Steel has a screen connector that is doomed to failure eventually due to a piece of foam no longer applying enough pressure onto the main PCB of the watch. This does not affect any of the Pebble Time variants or the Pebble 2.
