I love simple smartwatches that are hackable. I got my first and second Pebble as part of their Kickstarter campaign. I was a pleased user until then shut shop. I continued my search for a smartwatch. I had two options in front of me Bangel.js 2 and PineTime. I got both of them. But my PineTime is a developer, early version. Hence Bangle.js became the official replacement for Pebble
I got to know about Pebble when it became a super hit on Kickstarter. I don’t think I was on kickstarter then. It looked great on the paper but then investing $99 without knowing the outcome seemed like an expensive affair for me. But then I have followed them ever since. They have got really positive news since the beginning. Now I know why!
