If you had to do it again would you still buy into the Pebble?

I ordered my Pebble almost a year ago. I was extremely excited about this type of technology. There hasn’t been much done in this area since the tech crash right after Y2K. I own and still wear an onHand Matsucom “1998″ era wristwatch PC. I have 2 backups of it for when the original dies, LOL! So I was very excited to see and hear about the Pebble.

But now my patience is wearing thin. The original ship date of Sep 2012 I knew was optimistic. I have patience I can wait. Jan 2013 we heard the first batch was shipping, great. Soon, maybe soon. But I upgraded my watch to grey from the flat black and that was a mistake. If I would have kept with the original color I might have my watch now. They haven’t released any information about when color units will ship. It’s very sad. Their success has become their greatest downfall. And now Apple and Samsung are catching up.

A few years ago another company promised a great product. It was Wicked Lasers and their $200 1000 mW blue laser. They ended up shipping a year late. It was a bad experience for many.
