Pebble Time Round is officially unveiled
One of the most noticeable trends for the new smartwatches is the round shape. Some of the latest timepieces released by the companies this year sport stylish designs with round faces, like the new smartwatches of Huawei, Motorola and Samsung. Pebble is the next manufacturer that has something to offer for fans of round watches – the Pebble Time Round.
There is no mystery about the device – it is an extraordinary variant of the Pebble Time smartwatch that was released few months ago. The new model is outfitted with a 7.5mm thick round case. The panel of the smartwatch is splash-resistant. Pebble will offer the gadget in two variants in terms of bands – 20mm and 14mm, metal and leather. Pebble Time Round boasts an e-paper display that is always-on color. Software-wise the smartwatch runs on Timeline OS. Just like the original device, the Pebble Time Round is compatible with iOS and Android-running devices.
The smartwatch will provide an impressive battery life, as Pebble describes it “days-long battery life.” It comes in black and silver colors. The 14mm variant will be offered in rose gold as well. Pebble Time Round is up-for-pre-orders at Target, Best Buy, Amazon, and of course the official store Pebble.com. The price of the smartwatch starts at $249. The shipping of the Pebble Time Round is scheduled to begin in November. It is expected to get launched in different countries.
