I'm happy to admit that I got caught up in a wave of excitement following the Pebble Steel announcement at CES.
"Yes. A nice looking smartwatch that seems to tick the basic boxes I'd want from some wearable tech on my wrist. I'll buy one!"
And I received my confirmation email and awaited delivery. That was seven weeks ago and my enthusiasm for this gadget is declining. From reading /r/pebble on Reddit, I feel like I'm entering a world I haven't been in for many a year.
That's the world of the "nerdy kid who didn't join the mainstream." I was the only kid in my class to have an Amiga 500 rather than a Megadrive. I feel the Pebble Steel will be a repeat of this. I'll have a Pebble, others will have a Gear or Google Smartwatch or whatever comes out in a few months.
Because of this, I feel uncertain of my tech future.
