Pebble Unveils New Pebble Time Round Smartwatch [Video]

Pebble on Wednesday announced a new addition to its smartwatch lineup called the Pebble Time Round. As the name suggests, the device sports a round face, and the company is billing it as “the world’s lightest and thinnest smartwatch.”

A 7.5mm thin and weighing just 28 grams, Pebble Time Round is the thinnest and lightest smartwatch in the world.
● With a variety of available band sizes, watch finishes, and band options, Pebble Time Round suits more people than ever. Start with a band size—20mm or 14mm—that fits you best. Pick a finish to match your style: Black, Silver, or a special-edition Rose Gold exclusively for the 14mm band size.
● Polish off Pebble Time Round’s look with bespoke watchfaces in the Pebble appstore or with a selection of quick-change bands in genuine leather (metal band options come later this year).

● Pebble Time Round features days-long battery life, minutes-quick charging (just 15 minutes to get a day’s worth of use), and splash resistance for rainy days.
“It’s the first smartwatch that looks like a classic wristwatch,” Pebble CEO and co-founder Eric Migicovsky said today, “and it furthers our mission to create useful technology that blends into your everyday life, not the other way around.”

In addition to its round, slimmer body, the Time Round offers some other differentiating features over its predecessors such as quick charge, which adds 24 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes, and a new series of quick-switching bands.

The Pebble Time Round is compatible with both Android and iPhone, and its announcement comes hot on the heels of Apple’s watchOS 2 release. If you’re interested, the Round is available for pre-order at retailers with a starting price of $249.
