Hi, a lot of you have pebble watches.
What protection, if any, do you use for the watch, stickers, clip on covers etc?
I'm looking to get something, ideally subtle... Recommend away!
Ta.

Thinner, more memory, harder screen, thinner bezel. Cloth strap is better than the rubber strap. I had the same idea as you...

And then it got mucky and the steel strap was just an easy fix. Though the metal strap rubs a bit more when running you can bend your wrist so it didn't matter too much.

Morning all, here's a couple of quick snaps from my M9 phone...I fail to see the problem so far . It's a very decent device.

The tech bloggers said the same with the M8. Had some very impressive pictures from that.

Pebble watch...
I've had mine just under a week now and I'm a convert...
When I asked the question about smartwatches a few months back I got a strong pro pebble reaction and although I gave it a fair amount of thought I simply couldn't understand why it has so many fans...
I get it now.
It's not like a phone where more is better, the plus sides of the pebble are actually worth so much more than the downsides... I'll explain.
Battery life, not charging it for days means you can actually use it like a traditional watch, leaving it on your wrist normally.. Not taking it off every day to be charged overnight.
It's light and unobtrusive, I appreciate this is a personal thing, but a large bulky watch isn't appealing to me for several reasons. The pebble is light and subtle.
Simple.. Tricky to explain, but basically the pebble does what you want and doesn't try to be something it's not or you actually don't need... I firmly believe android wear and Apple have missed the point by trying to put a smartphone on your wrist... Again, personal taste.
Thoughts?

+Jon McKenna if there is high chance of breaking it but you want to give them a go at some point, try finding one used or on sale at a price where it's risk you're willing to take. 

Even if you can't take a call you know who tried to call you and know to call them back when you can.
I think I'm really under-using mine, but as I need my hands and move a lot while at work it's really convenient to see and read SMS, IMs and 'important' emails without taking the phone out. Then answer and properly read them at break. I also use the music control a lot, skipping boring song, checking what band is playing good song or just to pause the playback if somebody tries to communicate with me.

And recently Google Now's weather has been giving realistic temperatures so now that has turned out to be useful at morning.
Occasionally I have used it for navigation as I don't have dock for phone in the car, so I can glance the next turn information from my wrist without taking hand of the wheel. Oh, and FIT keeps telling me every day how much I have moved during the week and how lazy I'm during the weekends. 

Haven't really used voice commands as they're not available in my native language and it keeps taking the piss at my accent in English.

Picked this pebble watch up nice and cheap from +James Pearce​ and it's surprised me, I'm liking it much more than I expected. I think it's a case of less is more... The pebble is nice and simple, I think that's it's appeal to me. Plus it's reasonably small and not that noticeable (to me) on the wrist.

So my pebble won't connect to my new HTC one m9.... Is it because it's already connected to my Z2? It tries to pair but says about a pin number although the pebble is asking to connect and the numbers on the pebble and phone are the same...
Odd....

So following my cancelled order for my HTC one M9 on Amazon... They had "No inventory for this item" on delivery day... I've looked around on various sites to buy a sim free Gunmetal one and there appears to be none out there!
Plenty of sites list them, but try to buy and you notice the delivery date slips to next Tuesday at the earliest....
Silver is available , but apparently no Gunmetal..
Anyone connected to the industry have a view on this? HTC have obviously not mentioned a thing...

Another phone question.
New phone... I can never get this right.... What do I need to leave my current phone set to so that when I connect my new phone to the play store it automatically downloads the apps I'm currently using and not either nothing or every single app I've ever installed!
