Over the next 2 weeks, we would be highlighting the Top 5 Smartwatches of August 2016 as compiled by our friends at AndroidAuthority. We kick off this series with the 5th place Pebble Time smartwatch.
The Most Affordable of the pack, the Pebble Time has become a preferred choice for many due to its e-paper ink display that sees the battery last up to 5-days on a single charge. Compatible with both Android & iOS devices, the Pebble Time offers a very simple and easy user interface that makes it very simple to use and understand.
•1.25in IPS LCD 144x168p screen @177ppi (quite low compared to its peers, but a major reason why it lasts up to 5 days on a single charge)
•ARM Cortex-M4 CPU
•256KB RAM, 16MB ROM (just enough for simple data processing. No fancy sensors on here…)
•Water resistant up to 30meters
