I no longer wear my Pebble. Like most new technology, when it becomes affordable, I evaluate whether it is something that I find interesting for myself; this could be for professional reasons, personal reasons or a mixture of both. So far I have evaluated 2 types of wearable tech; a Fitbit and a Pebble.
The Fitbit was a few days of me compulsively competing with myself over how many steps I was stepping. Somehow it tapped into my obsessive compulsive nature. The Pebble I used for months. I would get notifications of texts and emails, see incoming phone calls and my daily agenda was my watchface. I really liked the Pebble. The biggest problem with the Pebble was that it was so easy to receive the information but not so easy to relay any. I would get a text, and then forget to return it by the time I would get to my actual cell phone. Same with emails. I would receive an email, read it and then forget to return the email when I get back to my cell phone. I think that this is a great "idea" but with such a one way communication model, the tech in some of these early edition watches just isn't there quite yet.
With the upcoming release of the Apple watch (you can preorder already), I wonder if anything will change. One thing is for sure, technology shouldn't be used just for the sake of technology. Then, the tech just becomes a burden instead of a life aide. Technology should be used with a purpose in mind where it's use will make your life easier!
