Pebble, best known for its Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel smartwatches, has announced its first circular device, the Pebble Time Round.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
The Round is 7.5mm thick and weighs 28 grams, making it exactly half the weight of the lightest Apple Watch and more than 100 grams lighter than a 42mm model with a stainless steel strap.
The Pebble Time Round’s band comes in either 14mm or 20mm and the unit is available in one of three different colors – black, silver or rose gold. There are different leather and stainless steel bands available too, which can easily be swapped using the quick-release mechanism.
Alongside the new watch, Pebble launched a new SDK that allows developers to make (or modify) their apps for the round screen.
While the Pebble Time Round is available to reserve for customers in the US (to arrive in early November) from $249/£229, it won’t be making its way to Europe until next year. A spokesperson confirmed it should be available in the UK before the end of 2015, though.
