WHAT BLOGGERS SAY ABOUT LIMITED EDITION PROXIMITY?
“The different functions utilizing the Bluetooth are very cool. While connected, your watch will notify you of incoming phone calls, emails (for up to five different email accounts), calendar notifications and, if you lose connection. This indication is established by a subtle vibration of the watch and the second hand pointing to the appropriate indicator (11 o’clock-for calls, 10 for email or calendar, and 9 for lost connection). The second hand will stay pointing at the indicator until you press the upper right button for a couple seconds, and then will jump back to perfect time. There is a ten meter sync range, so if you go outside of that, you will receive notification. If you’re quick enough to get back within range, it will automatically reconnect.”
“Smartwatches were supposed to prevent us from looking at our phones, make it easier to live our lives without checking our pocket every six seconds. But whenever I’ve used a Pebble, I just end up checking it every six seconds, and reading a whole email or text message on my wrist instead of on my phone. I don’t mind reading on my phone — the part I hate is pulling it out of my pocket only to find all I have is a calendar notification, or that it didn’t buzz at all and I’m just insane.
The Proximity’s best feature was acting as sort of a filter: in a half-second I’d know whether or not my vibrating pocket was actually something I should pay attention to, and I’d only actually look at my phone for things that matter. It also meant I could leave my phone in my bag, or on the table, or charging in my room, without worrying about missing something really important.”
