Pebble Time Round official launch on November 8

Pebble Time Round will launch in November 8 and, if you live in the US, you will be able to buy it from Best Buy and Target. You will also be able to purchase one of these smartwatch devices from Amazon and Pebble’s own sites, regardless of where you live. Now when it comes to price, it is one of the more expensive devices to launch on the niche market, with a starting price of $249. Is it worth it?

 

Pebble time round

 

The Pebble Time Round has been laying low since its announcement in September, but come Sunday, things will change. Why is this devices so important? because Pebble usually pioneers different features on its gadgets and manages to offer their customers a pretty decent device.

 

Why is this Pebble Time Round different?

 

It has an e-paper display exactly like its predecessor (only round), which, despite the mono-chrome vibe, manages to help the device run for days (at least on paper). The smartwatch weighs 28 grams and measures 7.5mm in thickness, but it still manages to remain the thinnest and lightest smartwatch on the market.

The lightness of the device cuts back on the weeks-worth of battery from the previous Pebble device as official statements put the battery life at 2 days worth of activity for a full charge. The good thing is the smartwatch has a quick charging feature that will let your Pebble Round get a day of battery life in only 15 minutes.

 

When it comes to color options you can choose a Pebble Time Round in black and silver for the 20mm version and black, silver and rose gold for the 14mm bands size version. The device always keeps its face active and, considering it is a round watch, it looks just like a normal old-school analog watch. Pebble is branding it as a good device for people with small wrists, so that may help you make up your mind about this smartwatch.

Pebble Time Round – Pebble’s first round-faced watch

This year, the wearable tech trend is round smartwatches as we keep seeing new devices sporting up the – shall we say – classic shape that a watch usually has, with the most recent case being Pebble. Pebble Time Round is the newest smartwatch from the company that finally decided to roll back in line with the big boys and it will have the nice price tag of $249.

Pebble is, in fact, the smartwatch creator who started this smartwatch trend via a Kickstarter campaign and changed the world of technology and wearables forever. Today, they announced the imminent launch of Pebble Time Round, their first round smartwatch that looks very much like Moto 360 or Huawei’s watch. The device could also become the thinnest and lightest smartwatch on the market.

 

It has a 7.5mm steel casing and weighs only 23 grams, almost half of Apple Watch’s weight of 42 grams. But it’s not a “who has the most anorexic watch in the world” competition here, folks.

 

Pebble Time Round will have the same color e-paper display and not a touchscreen and it will maintain its operating system to the same level as Pebble Steel and Pebble Time. It will have the same setup and buttons to maneuver apps and settings with as well.

 

One big setback from being the thinnest and slimmest of them all is that its battery will only last for two days instead of a whole week. But it’s still longer than what Apple and Google Wear are offering you right now anyway. Pebble also promises that the smartwatch will fully charge in only 15 minutes.

 

Pebble Time Round will be available in three color options, namely gold, silver and black and its price will start at $249. It will become available online and via retailers in the US starting November and you will find it in stores like Target, Best Buy or on Amazon.

Pebble Steel Time

 

This new device doesn’t change much from the first model except for the battery, replacing it with a much bigger one that allegedly allows for 10 days of usage without having to charge it. The Steel’s “stainless steel” case will be available in three colors: gold, silver and black, and it appears to be 1mm thicker than the first model. When it comes to straps, you will be able to choose between stainless steel and fine leather options of various colors.

 

Pebble smartstrap

 

Apart from the regular straps, Pebble announced smartstraps, interchangeable bands that can expand the smart capabilities of the device. They can have sensors and electronics that interact directly with apps (probable usage with NFC chips, extendable batteries and heart rate monitors for example). The straps will have quick release pins that allow users to easily change straps to match their business day.
