Apple watch vs Pebble 2

I got the first apple watch when it came out and will be using that version to compare to the new Pebble 2.

First off, I was very happy with my Apple watch 1.  There’s a lot of great notifications for it and it’s user friendly.  One thing I did not like about the watch is that the notifications would go directly to the watch without warning me on the iphone despite my ringer being on.  

The main reason why I decided to look for a watch outside of my stellar apple watch is because the battery life on the apple watch is incredibly low.  I can only go one day between charges.  Sometimes, I’m at work for more than 24 hours so it becomes more cumbersome on the logistics.  Sure, I could bring my charger and charge it… but that takes time, effort, and extra cords since it doesn’t have a lightning charger.  So, enter the Pebble 2…a Kickstarter project!
