Pebbell GPS SOS Tracker Device Completes Outdoor Road Test

Bristol based personal trainer and running coach for women over 40, Lesley Waldron, kindly road tested one of our Pebbell GPS SOS Tracker devices, across fields and down lanes, during summer 2017.

What was your first impression of the Pebbell?

I really liked the size and the shape and it felt quite tactile, even though this is something that is used as a functional piece of kit. It’s quite attractive which gives it a ‘fashionable WOW' touch. I was curious about how it worked and the functions of little buttons on the side.

How easy was the Pebbell to set up and use? 

Simple to set up and charge. I took it out on several runs to get an idea about how it would feel carrying it. Easy to use and lightweight, the Pebbell was nice to have as extra personal security.

As a runner what did you like about the Pebbell?

I think it is good to run without your phone. Lots of my clients run with a mobile phone, usually to play music for motivation. I feel the Pebbell would be ideal for a beginner runner for added security, in case they needed to call someone, should an emergency arise. The device is small enough to wear/carry in your pocket or via the Velcro armband. It serves a similar purpose to a panic button that older people have for medical/emergency reasons.

What are your thoughts about whether other outdoor enthusiasts such as horse riders and mountain bikers would feel using a Pebbell?

When you use your mobile on a run or ride, to track your miles or to listen to music, you often run out of power. I think the Pebbell would be a useful tool to combat this.

In one sentence how would you sum up the Pebbell for someone who might be interested in getting one as an outdoor sports safety device?

It's a great way to support first time runners or first time out on the trails. I think it's a great device for them.
