Comparison between Artik Cloud vs IFTTT?

I’ve been slowly building up my SmartThings network and looking at integrating different products and devices with each other and getting my head around all the different things. Recently looked into IFTTT and now Artik Cloud.

I was wondering if anyone did a comparison between the two with regards to the response time as there can be some lag with IFTTT. Which is faster?

Right now I’ve been using the IFTTT Maker channel to control devices on my Pebble Time. Recently Artik Cloud was added to the pebble appstore.
