Where to buy Pebble Smartwatch in Philippines

Many have expressed their interest on Pebble Smartwatches recently, possibly due to the boom on wearables this year, and have been asking where to buy one locally. I usually just answered “getpebble.com” since that’s the most ‘direct and safest’ place to buy it.

But that might not be the case for everyone not willing to wait and pay the mysterious custom tax when it arrives here in the Philippines so here are other ‘local’ options on how to order your very own Pebble Smartwatch.

Lazada.com.ph

Lazada has a wide variety of Pebble watches on sale. They have different colors at different prices so use your buyer’s instinct and get the better deal. If you’d like to get the Pebble Steel, they also have it listed there. The lowest priced Pebble being sold is the black version which costs 6,958 pesos.

Kim Store

Another place to get your Pebble watch is Kim Store. They only seem to have the color White and Red on stock and they are priced cheaper than the rest at 6,500 pesos with 3 months warranty. Kim Store has been tried and tested by its gadget-buying patrons through the years so safe to say that you can trust this online seller.

TipidPC

TipidPC is an online classifieds site for computers and electronics. Safe to say that you can find online sellers selling brand new or second hand Pebble watches here. Search for the keyword ‘Pebble” on the ‘Items for Sale’ and see if anything comes up.

But just a word of caution, check feedbacks and if possible buy and pay in person if you want to be on the safe side. (Personally, I deal via shipping items I sell myself but some people are just uneasy with our kind of sellers.)

Other Online Classified Sites

Olx.ph is a good place to start with your Pebble hunting. Just proceed with caution. Remember that if it seems good to be sure, it must be just that.

Good luck with your Pebble Watch Hunt! :)  Feel free to join in the Pebble + Smartwatches Philippine Facebook Fan Page anytime!

Nokia introduces the Nokia N1 Android tablet

nokia-n1

Nokia just introduced the Nokia N1 Android powered tablet. It’s first device after selling of its mobile devices division to Microsoft. The N1 comes with Nokia’s in-house launcher app ZLauncher. The actual hardware is being produced by Foxconn for Nokia (brand licensing stuff) and will be sold at $249 or around 11,500 pesos.

Why a tablet? Well Nokia is restricted from making phones until December 21, 2015 as stated on their contract with Microsoft (Microsoft can use the Nokia brand for feature phones until 2024.)

"We have a very valuable brand, … Yes it is diminishing in value, and that’s why it is important that we reverse that trend very quickly, imminently." - Ramzi Haidamus, President of Nokia technologies

Nokia knows that one of their strengths as a company is their brand, the name NOKIA is synonymous with quality, design and durability and they really want to bank on it and launch something sooner rather later. I hope this works out for them.

Nokia N1 Specs

  • Display: 7.9 inch (4:3) 2048x1536, Gorilla glass 3, IPS panel with LED backlight
  • CPU: 2.3GHz Intel 64-bit Atom Z3580 Processor
  • GPU: PowerVR G6430 GPU
  • Camera: 8 megapixel rear, 5 megapixel front
  • Memory: LPDDR3 (800 MHz), 2 GB
  • Storage: eMMC 5.0, 32 GB
  • Software: Android 5.0 Lollipop, Nokia Z Launcher
  • Battery: 18.5 Wh (5300 mAh) rechargeable lithium polymer battery (3.7 V)
