Smartwatches are all the rage at the minute and if you have read our smartwatch guide you will be familiar with the massively popular Pebble. The Pebble was a huge success and considered the most popular smartwatch to buy. You’d have to sell one of your arms to get one though.
One of the criticisms of the original Pebble was its all plastic design. It just didn’t feel like a premium product. Well now Pebble are remedying this with the introduction of the much slicker and robust looking Pebble Steel. The steel retains the specifications of the original Pebble but has a vastly improved design.
The old Pebble will still be available at $149 with the Steel coming in at $249. The extra hundred dollars brings a much more premium all stainless steel design, a choice of stainless steel or leather strap and much more conventional styling. The Pebble Steel will be launched at the end of January in line with the new app store.
