Just got mine today, mainly to know when I get phone calls or messages, not as a replacement for my S5. However, I am seeing a lot of other things going on so I'd like to see what it can actually do. I've tried some watch faces but I'm having a hard time getting everything I want on it. Analog, ACCURATE temp, day, date. I can get part of all but the temp is wrong. Also what does Tasker do for me? And Glance? Is ti worth using those apps and do you have some others that you'd like to suggest for a functional guy?

I am happy with canvas for pebble, where you can easily make your Personal watchface.
Also you can modify / copy the built in Layouts, add sensors and switch watchfaces with a little tap via the canvas-app.

Cheers

Been working with Canvas all day and I like it. I now have the watch face (for digital anyway) that I like. Dumping Glance. Too hard to use.

I"m a pretty minimallist guy and the Pebble lets me do that. Looked at the Samsung stuff and thought about Androidwear but that all looks pretty complicated. Let me know how it works for you. I just used Canvas to build a digital face that had pretty much everything I want info wise on it. Weather still doesn't track with my Phone but it's close enough.

The app gives a lot of features with a very simple look. I really like some of the features though such as being able to reply to a text message with quick replies. So far so good. I also use Pebble Instant as well.

Feel the same way! Really considering the steel over a Moto 360 b/c I don't need all that junk. Plus I feel like the color display would suck battery life and be distracting...

I am interested in Androidwear but I'm pretty sure the shiney stuff won't convince me to buy. Cool concept though. Just don't think its practical now.
