Samsung Galaxy Watch vs Pebble Watch

Pretty soon, App Store Download will be expanding its App Store and Portfolio of Apps to include more iOS, Android, and Windows Apps. We will also be launching some Apps for wearable devices like the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch – Android Wear OS. For this, I’ve been doing a lot of research over the past couple months, trying to figure out which Apps will give me and the users who download the Apps that I develop, the biggest bang for our buck. When I first started, I thought the answer to this question is pretty simply and straight forward: Developing Apps For The Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch. Because let’s face it, the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch is by far the best and the most advanced wearable Smartwatch on the market – or at least that’s what I thought at first. Surprisingly, people were split between the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch and the Pebble Smartwatch. Though not an exact 50-50 Split, I still found it amusing that many people preferred the Pebble Smartwatch over Samsung Galaxy.

So, in this blog post, I thought it would be helpful to do a 1-to-1, Pound-for-Pound, Toe-to-Toe comparison of the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch .vs. the Pebble Smartwatch. I will, to the best of my ability, try to keep things as simple as possible, while at the same time giving you a systematic breakdown of each Smartwatch.

Without further ado, let’s get started!
