I would recommend not buying a Pebble, actually. Because Pebble got aquired by Fitbit. Read all about it here: https://blog.getpebb...6/12/07/fitbit/

That being said: I do love my own Pebble Time Steel, but I am sad to see that Pebble isn't continuing to exist.

Honestly, I don't know. I haven't really looked into other smart watches yet. And 50 to 80 dollars budget isn't very much for a smartwatch. My pebble set me back a good 200 bucks.

Pebble is still a good watch, it just won't receive any more updates or new kinds of apps. So that's why I would stay clear of it, instead of buying an 'outdated' product.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

Olrik

Your most welcome. If you do find something to your liking, do let me know as well. I'm still passively looking for a replacement for my Pebble, for when it breaks ;-)

Looks like a nice find to me! I'll definitely bookmark it, for when my Pebble dies.

Why do you think it might be complicated?
