Battery Life and Durability is an Important Consideration
Between the interactive touch screen and other built in technologies, Apple is boasting an 18 hour battery life for Apple Watch. Because Pebble Watch uses an e-paper display, and has less built-in technology, so its battery life is up to seven days.
As for durability, both Apple Watch Sport Edition and Pebble Time are water resistant. Other Apple Watch models, with their leather or designer straps, for example, are designed more for fashion than activities that involve harsh or wet conditions.
Both Apple Watch and Pebble Time are cutting-edge wearable pieces of technology that are stylish, durable, and designed for everyday use. With so much support and attention being given to Apple Watch, it’s clear that this will soon become the “must have” product of 2015.
Apple Watch will no doubt quickly become the market leader in the smart watch category and is poised to make traditional watches obsolete, which will have a huge impact on designer watch companies, some of which have been in business for more than a century.
Pebble Time, however, offers a lower cost and less technologically advanced smart watch option that some smartphone users (particularly non-iPhone 5 or iPhone 6 users) will find attractive. Ultimately, what both Apple Watch and Pebble Time will be capable of will depend on the third-party apps available, and both Apple and Pebble Technology are currently working with literally hundreds of app developers.
