    Cheapest they have been right now:

    Pebble Black Friday Sale[Original $79 $20 off] [Steel $149 $50 off ]
    Deal Link: https://getpebble.com/checkout

    It took about 3 weeks to arrive.

    I have found it to be great for a youth in school when you have to help manage. You can set it up to alert(silent wrist buzz) based on a google calendar to remind him to test. Texts from predefined people or everybody will alert and be viewable from the watch. The cellphone can be in his D-bag and both it and the watch can alert if they become unpaired (too far apart)

    We really like it. The battery lasts all week. Great device and we have yet to use it for anything else but D management.

    Interesting, the battery is only giving us about 1 full day...
    My daughter likes it, but we find that it is not in complete sync with the CGM, so if CGM reads 150 and rising, the watch will show the number from a bit earlier. There's a lag time and that's frustrating for me as my daughter is ignoring the watch more than the CGM! LOL, though she likes that she can turn music on from the watch when it's paired with her iPhone!
