I never imagined I would own a smart watch. I have always bought the cheapest Casio or Timex watches I can find and they have served me well. Recently, though, I read an article written by a fellow who is hard of hearing and he said he rarely missed a call on his cell phone because of his smart watch. That intrigued me because I am hard of hearing. I have a Samsung Note 4 which I keep in my pants pocket (it has never bent) and I probably miss 80% of my calls because I don’t hear the phone or feel the vibration. I decided to buy the highly rated Pebble Watch for under $100 from Amazon and it’s made a huge difference for me. I never miss the vibration on my wrist whenever I receive a call, email, or notification. The watch has a crisp epaper display and even with my poor eyesight I can easily read caller information, calendar reminders, etc. The Pebble Smartwatch has been a great watch for me and I wear it all the time.
