Here's my review of the Pebble Steel. It's my favorite smartwatch yet, but I'm even more excited about the Pebble appstore.

Impressed by the battery life. The first smartwatch I have considered so far.

I'm installing the Cover lockscreen for Android. Right. Now. This thing looks fantastic.

I have been using it for a few days, and it's nice. The peek is useful, as are the different apps that come and go, depending on where you are. A nice bonus is that you can use the WiFi network to switch profiles, including ringtone volume.

Just wrapped Episode 199 of the Engadget Mobile Podcast with +Emily Price +Chris Velazco! Since it was a video Hangout, you can now go check it out right away if you missed the live recording. We talk Lenovo/Motorola, and I also discuss the new format we're going to try out for the next few episodes. Let me know what you think!

Some very good points. I certainly don't have interest in carrying two pairs of glasses with me.
 
So Google's prescription-suited frames for +Google Glass finally make their debut: four styles at $225 apiece, though that's without corrective lenses of course. Meanwhile there are two new twist-on sunglasses options as well.

I'm glad to see this, but I'm also a little disappointed in how Google approached the issue of catering for glasses-wearers. Right now it's all-or-nothing: Glass unscrews from the default band and screws into one of these "Titanium Collection" frames instead.

Problem is, there are times when I want to be able to see but I don't necessarily want to be wearing Glass. Maybe I'm somewhere where it's not acceptable to wear, like a movie theater, but where I'd still like to, y'know, see things (I'm short-sighted). Maybe Glass' battery is dead, and I'd rather have it plugged into a charger than perched lifeless on the side of my face. 

To me, the obvious solution would've been to have the Glass section detachable - then I could wear the frames all the time, and "snap on" Glass whenever I wanted its functionality. 

As it stands, I'm basically going to have to carry two sets of glasses with me: Glass with prescription frames, and a normal pair for the times when I'm not wearing the wearable. I'm glad us corrective-vision people are finally getting catered for, but I wish the Glass team had been a bit more open to suggestions about how we might want it all to work.

Also, I must say that Pebble's new firmware update is a solid improvement. Do Not Disturb is a feature I've been hoping for. 
The Pebble smartwatch is all about getting mobile notifications more efficiently, but what about when you don't want to see those notifications at all?
