Because there are over 300,000 Pebbles strapped to the wrists of consumers across the globe, CES is the perfect time for the release of Pebble Steel. Like the original Pebble, Pebble Steel features the same e-paper display and 5 to 7 day battery life, but the body of the watch has been completely redesigned. Featuring CNC-machines stainless steel, the watch sports a much more refined look and feel. The watch uses an RGB LED to indicate charging status and Corning Gorilla Glass with an anti-fingerprint coating to protect its display. Pebble Steel will come in a Brushed Stainless and Black Matte finish with a matching metal band and black leather strap. Pebble Steel can be ordered now through getpebble.com for $249 with an expected ship date of January 28.
We’re extremely excited about the new Pebble Steel design. The original device always looked a bit childish (though that has not kept me from wearing it since day one). Do you think Pebble Steel will be as successful as the original Pebble?
