Apple Watch ~
1. A fashion statement more than anything.
2. Costs too much for simple functionality.
3. Feel-good factor if you wear one to meet your friends. (Other smart watches can’t achieve this).
4. If you are successful, go for the 18K gold version.

Now what about Pebble watch?

Original Pebble watch ~
Simply put, you only need to realize the following… Facts.
What Pebble can do that Apple can’t?

1.  Long lasting battery juices! (Between 4 – 5 days).
2.  Thousands of 3rd party applications for download.
3.  Value for money ~ many good functionalities.
4.  Room for customization.
5.  Screen On all the time!
6.  Dammed clear under bright sun light!
7.  Take it for a swim in the pool or sea. (Not for diving).
8. Unlimited watch face you can create…
