For the last two weeks, I've been sporting the Pebble — a Kickstarter-borne Bluetooth-enabled smartwatch that pairs with your smartphone to display notifications, manage apps, and even control song playback. Of all the initial reactions I've received, the most common has been "Why would I want that when I can just pull out my smartphone?" It's a valid question, but the utility of the Pebble is only fully realized after day-to-day use, and now, it's part of my day-to-day routine. It's by no means perfect, but it's a solid investment for anyone interested in the smartwatch space.
Samsung knows what it wants to be in the Android smartphone race, and it manages to execute it very, very well. But, if you're looking for an aggressive revamp to the company's flagship series in the Galaxy S4, you might find yourself disappointed.
