I've been following the pebble since it was a kickstarter campaign, I was very tempted to back it but couldn't because I thought it was too expensive. After it had come out I saw it in pictures and videos and the device looked like it was cheaply put together. I'm not talking about the technology that has gone in to it but the way it looks and the plastic band and casing.
Now after the pebble steel came out I ordered one as in the pictures it looked like they had upped everything about it, looked like a true premium product at $249 I would have hoped so. I have now relieved my product now having had a many steel watches immediately the steel band provided feels cheap light/thin and like a Chinese knock off of something. I can say the same thing about the leather band very thin and the leather adjustment holes look like after a couple months it will start to tear apart. It seems as if their motto is charge maximum and spend little. They are advertising it as a premium watch to have on you but when you rub your finger across the screen the edges of the casing where the metal feels the glass are rough to touch, it takes at least 2-3 times to get the charging cable to fully click in to place rather than hover over the holes. Not to mention the charging cable being proprietary is very flimsy. Don't get me wrong the functionality is great, it does everything it says it can but in a cheap housing. I'm not satisfied with spending $249. I will be testing it out for the next couple weeks to see how it holds up.
