Design quirks aside, I think Pebble has pulled off something none of the big companies exploring smartwatches have been able to do.

This is one of the few smartwatches I've reviewed that I've wanted for myself. The Pebble Time Round's stunning good looks alone make it worth considering. But its attractiveness only gets it so far. Its battery life, while on a par with Android Wear and the Apple Watch, is far less than that of other Pebble smartwatches; it runs fewer apps, and its display is smaller, dimmer and less colorful than those of its competitors.
If you just want a more full-featured smartwatch, check out the Asus ZenWatch 2, which puts Android Wear on your wrist for a starting price of just $130. But... Full review
If you want advanced functions such as maps and navigation, contactless payment, a heart rate monitor, touch input and gestures, voice control and many more advanced features, then maybe you should look at either Android Wear or Apple Watch as your solution.

It's comfortable, reliable and works with both iOS and Android so you can commit. Timeline is useful and can only get better. Voice works. Colour e-paper livens things up a bit and doesn't seem to impact battery life. But it's not quite the answer to the smartwatch question. Now we've seen Now's AI skills on Android Wear and real world partnerships with the Apple Watch, Pebble's combination of keeping things simple and geek-friendly might not be enough for everyone interest...
