Pebble Introduces Round Smartwatch Called Pebble Time Round, the New King of Bezel

This, is the Pebble Time Round. It’s the new round smartwatch from Pebble that starts at $249 and can be reserved today before shipping some time in November.

The new Pebble Time Round (PTR) is like previous Pebble watches in that it has a “beautiful,” always-on e-paper display. It does the whole notification thing, as well, as any smartwatch should. But what makes this new watch somewhat interesting, is the fact that it’s round, incredibly thin at 7.5mm, and still lasts for days on a single charge. The PTR comes in 20mm or 14mm options, which is really just you deciding which band thickness you want. As for colors, you are looking at black, silver, and rose gold (option is exclusive to 14mm).  (more…)

Pebble Time Review

The Pebble Time is an important product for a few reasons, but the most important is that it is the only serious contender for the space on your wrist besides Android Wear and Apple Watch. For most users, Android Wear and Apple Watch make more sense on their respective platforms. Really, the only reason the Pebble Time exists is because the original Pebble did a lot of what many users wanted in a smartwatch far before Android Wear and Apple Watch were a thing nerds argued about and normal humans looked at briefly as they passed through their mall.

Now that Android Wear and Apple Watch are here, though, can Pebble stay relevant with the Time?

This is our Pebble Time review. (more…)
