Pebble bets on round, thin watch to combat Apple Watch, Android Wear

Pebble Time Round Named World’s Slimmest Smartwatch.

The darling of Kickstarter (a record $10 million raised in 30 days), Pebble still retains a sense of community with its 20,000 Instagram followers, 84,000 Twitter followers and 325,000 Facebook likes. While it offers much of the same functionality as its Gear S2 and Moto 360 competitors, it trumps its rivals when it comes to size, measuring a skinny 7.5mm thick and tipping the scales at just 28g.

Little wonder, then, that Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky has positioned his latest offering, the Pebble Time Round, as a sort of anti-Apple Watch: Thinner, rounder, cheaper and not a miniature smartphone on your wrist. This svelte profile comes at a cost, however, as Pebble says the Time Round’s battery will make it through just two days, compared to the 10-hour battery life offered by its square-shaped Pebble Time predecessor. Beyond that, the smartwatch offers the same e-paper display as its predecessors – albeit surrounded by a chunkier bezel, and runs Pebble’s custom Timeline software. The Time Round will be available with a choice of two band sizes, 14mm and 20mm, which will be offered in ‘quick change’ leather, with metal straps arriving later in the year.
