On this episode of the SyrupCast, co-hosts Igor BonifacicRose Behar, Patrick O'Rourke and Zach Gilbert, bid a tearful goodbye to Pebble, one of the first manufacturers to release a smartwatch.

This week the company announced that Fitbit would be acquiring Pebble for a significantly reduced price, essentially buying the Canadian founded wearable manufacturer for spare parts. The SyrupCast crew wonders at what point Pebble took a turn for the worse, and if they could have done something differently.

Next, the team examines the most recent Samsung S8 rumours. Will the likely soon-to-be announced smartphone fare better than the Note 7? 

Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team’s thoughts, and jump in the comments to tell us what you think.
