Take that Apple Watch with your wimpy battery life

Over a month's worth of battery life on my original Pebble Watch. I put it into 'Airplane Mode' with the bluetooth radio turned-off. Normally you'd leave BT on but in a pinch and you don't have a charger handy you can still tell the time for over a month on a charge.

I had turned the Bluetooth radio off in my original Pebble Watch since I don’t really wear it anymore and the battery went over a month on a single charge. My new Pebble Time Watch probably works almost as long if I turned the radio off. But any smartwatch would be hampered without using the wireless radio. And now my PT watch can answer text messages via voice, it has a mic built-in, and it’s now tied into HealthKit on the iPhone. Even less of a reason for the overpriced Apple Watch.
