A huge thread on the Pebble smartwatch website is full of angst and despair as a mysterious bug is killing off the Pebble smartwatch and is turning them into bracelets and while Pebble is replacing the dead units with brand new ones, it is unknown whether a new firmware update recently sent out is behind the problem that the watches are having...

I know the writers at PA work very hard to bring us juicy news and rumors and reviews but it feels like on the weekends, nothing special is reported. Just boring news like this. :(

temper temper sir i never said it was all about Apple, Samsung, or Microsoft. and if this website is about any form of technology maybe they should change the name of their website from PHONEarena to techarena or something like that. A smartwatch is cool but im on this website to read about phones, not tablets, smartwatches, or glasses. :)

And yes I know that my opinion may not be the most popular but it is simply my opinion. Dont get me wrong, I love Phone Arena.

I know, we all love PA, thats why we are here commenting, discussing, etc. I think PA have a perfect balance between phones, technology and culture around technology.

WTF? this is actually NEWS for those of us who have interest in the Pebble.

You'd rather see, on a weekend, 10 new posts that are re-hashes of the latest rumors on XYZ phone that will never likely be true??

What I am tired of is the countless rumor-mill, unsubstantiated stories that almost always turn out to be true.

I agree somewhat. I am also impressed that they shop post as much as they do over the weekend. It's hard to come up with stuff on the weekend.

apple must be doing it, so when they launch their watch all these people are forced into buying it.

That would imply appfail has some kind of a clue as to how to program.

Yeah, and NO other company that came out with a new device has ever had issues. lol

The true measure as the article mentioned, is how does Pebble respond? If they act all high and mighty-ish like Apple and say ppl are just turning it off wrong, then they will be in big trouble.

But if they are transparent and honest with the public, then it won't be a big deal. People love success stories and are very tolerant of small problems like this, as long as Pebble treats their customers right.
