tl;dr I like Pebble better than Android Wear for reasons that are important to me.
Anyway, these are the reasons that kill Android Wear for me:
1. Simplicity: The Pebble is very simple and very easy to use. I get my notifications and they are reliable. And while I don't mind charging my watch everyday, it is nice to not have to worry about it.
2. The physical buttons are a killer feature for me. I often use the music controls around the house and in the car and it is really nice to be able to skip a track or play/pause without looking at my wrist.
3. Ability to view the screen outside. Some Android Wear devices are better than others here, but none are as good as my Pebble.
4. Ability to have my phone completely silent. I want a buzz on my wrist — and nothing else. Pebble allows me to do that. My phone is in Do Not Disturb mode and the Pebble will still buzz with an incoming notification. I cannot seem to make that happen with the most recent Android Wear update (though please correct me if I am wrong).
I do know about that setting in the Wear app, but even with that on, I still seem to get random beeps and buzzes.
I don't know, I feel like I'm missing something obvious.
