iFixit Finds The Pebble Smart Watch Incredibly Durable, But Not Very Repairable

One of the downsides to owning an electronic gadget that you use on a daily basis is that it is prone to wear and tear and eventually breaking down. Replacing said gadgets can be pretty costly which is why some people argue that even though devices like the iPhone use an aluminum body, being prone to scratches can quickly turn it ugly if not protected. Now if you were thinking of picking up a device like the Pebble smart watch, then you might be pleased to learn that according to the folks at iFixit, they have deemed the Pebble watch an extremely durable device, especially in terms of battery.

Since the Pebble watch can go for up to 7 days without requiring a recharge, this means that unlike phones or laptops that are charged on a daily basis, this will help increase the battery life of the device. According to iFixit, they expect that the battery found in the Pebble watch should last 6 to 10 years, which we have to admit is pretty impressive. On the other hand, repairing the watch appears to be pretty difficult and has been deemed “infeasible”. This is namely because taking the watch apart would mean breaking its e-ink display. The reason behind this is due to the amount of adhesive used which helps protect the watch against water during swimming or washing the dishes.

In any case if you’d like to learn more about the Pebble watch, you can head on over to their website for the details, or check out iFixit’s report for the full tear down.
