I received my Pebble smart watch yesterday after waiting over a year since first backing the product on Kickstarter.
First thoughts are that the build quality feels almost like a prototype product, the mushy buttons and glued together case definitely feel first generation. The functionality on the other hand is incredibly cool, reading emails, text messages and other notifications on your wrist is a revelation. It's amazing how inconvenient getting my phone out of my pocket now feels.
If Apple really are making an iWatch I can see people going nuts over it, the experience is like a new paradigm and Apple have the resources to get the product right. I'm firmly outside the walled garden so I won't get an Apple product myself, but I'm looking forward to the next generation of smart watches that it will inspire.
