Pebble and Pebble Time Watches

I gave up on the new Pebble Time this past weekend. Although I really love the Pebble watches, two frustrations with the new Time model have pushed me back to the original Pebble. The main issue is that I can’t control MapMyFitness from the watch. The original Pebble shows my mileage, time and lets me start and stop my workout with a touch of a button. I use that feature more than any other on the watch and that includes the nice SMS voice response on the Time. The other issue is a minor quibble, even though the color e-ink screen is pretty, it is slightly smaller and can be more difficult to read without my glasses. Both still have the 4-7 day battery life that I consider the minimum edge for me, any less and I would find myself with a dead watch at the most inopportune times. I guess I will just keep checking the forums to see if Under Armor adds support for the Time…  until then, back to the drawing board.
