Having received an original (i.e. not 'Steel') Pebble Smart Watch for Christmas I immediately set about obtaining a second charging cable for it. Regrettably Pebble went with a proprietary charging connector on their debut wearable, so you don't have the option of grabbing any old Micro USB cable you might have lying around when you get a low-battery warning.

To buy a second charging lead from Pebble directly costs £10 for the cable itself and then a further £2.50 for delivery. Pretty steep... VicTsing, however, come to the rescue with their cheap-as-chips third-party alternative!

Costing just over £4 delivered (at time of writing) it is a perfect second charger to leave in the office or to throw in a bag if you're going somewhere for a weekend away. This way you can leave your official (and better quality) charging cable safe at home. The VicTsing cable is undeniably inferior to the original, it's a hair shorter and more importantly the magnets in the tip that both guide and maintain the connection between charger and watch are noticeably weaker. In use this means that things can get a tad frustrating having to continually adjust the charger to get it in the right spot and even then a very small knock can dislodge it. That said, is it so frustrating that I'd be willing to pay three times the price for an additional official cable? No.

All in all, this is very much what you'd expect at the price. The build quality is not up there with the original and it does not work as well in operation but it 'does' work, it does the job and at such a price-point where you would not be too heart-broken if it gets broken or lost. If you need a second charging cable for your original Pebble Smart Watch then I can't see any reason to spend more than this.

What can I say about this cable? It's cheap, but the magnet is weak and it's quite hard to keep it attached, so if you buy - find a safe place to position the watch so the charging cable won't fall off. Check it's connected and then don't make any sudden movements or sneeze. Do that, and you'll be fine.

These do exactly what you would expect, charge your pebble watch. However the magnetic connection isn't as good as the original charger and can easily be knocked off if you are not careful. However this is a minor issue, and if you are careful shouldn't really affect your use of the charger.

Overall I would recommend any Pebble owners get this charger.

it's basically just a cable... but compared to the original, it doesn't remain attached to the pebble quite as well as the original.
If your pebble is not moved, it's fine, but I've found simply picking the pebble up can be enough to drop the cable - it seem the cable is a bit stiffer, and this provides enough torque to disconnect the magnets.
It does the basic job ok, but it's just not as good.
Edited after a few weeks.
The weak magnets are irritating compared to the original - I have to be _really_ careful to gently place the watch down after attaching the cable, as even the slightest knock can dislodge it.

The magnet seems stronger than the default oem so I can sit at work typing while my pebble charges.

I have found it a bit trickier to get it to connect and charge than the oem cable but with a bit of wiggling it works fine, it's slightly harder to disconnect it as well which is a good thing.

Having joined the Smart Watch fashion, need a second cable to charge whilst in the office. Since the idea is to wear the watch constantly, charging is really when you are stationary or not wearing. Went for a second cable that can be used in an office location.
This cable is ideal to run off the USB socket on the monitor and to clip onto the watch whilst typing....as I am doing right now. I would agree that the magnets are not the strongest but are working right now with no issue. Does make people look twice to see me plugged into the computer but can say there have been no charging issues and seems to charge at a same rate as the original cable.

I would say compared to the original the magnets aren't quite as strong and the connector is a tiny bit bulkier, so whilst I was able to just about get away with sleeping with the original connected (held in place by routing it under the strap), this one just comes off. It also means you're going to want a flat and stable surface for charing with this cable.
To be fair, the original can be tricky to keep connected too.
Can't complain at all for the price. Serves a purpose as an emergency topup at work.

It certainly does charge the pebble watch, but the magnets are incredibly weak and fall away from the watch if you slightly touch the lead. You literally have to balance the watch on a box and attach the cable - then leave it. Don't touch it. It charges the watch. Definitely NOT as good as the original charger but does the job!
