What do You Get When You Breed a Pebble and a Swatch? The Pebble Time Round

24 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Pebble goes full circle with latest smartwatch.

Pebble has announced a brand new smartwatch called the Pebble Time Round, and the company touts it as the ‘thinnest and lightest smartwatch in the world.’ The Pebble Time Round’s band will be offered in either 14mm or 20mm and the unit is available in one of three different colours variants namely black, silver or rose gold.

At 7.5mm thick and weighing in at 28 grams, the new watch is slighter than the smallest Apple Watch and much littler than some of the bulky Android Wear devices. Time Round will come with a choice of 20mm or 14mm band fittings, making it possibly the first smartwatch that will make sense for those with small wrists. And it uses the same setup as all previous Pebble watches, with three buttons for navigating around the software located on the right side of the watch. The 1.25-inch diameter display is still color e-paper-and there is still no touchscreen. “We’ve been making smartwatches for a long time and there’s always been a small number of people who’ve told us that our watches were a bit too big for their wrists,” Mr. It’s designed from the ground up to be a truly smart watch.” The watch comes in black or silver (or rose gold in 14mm only), comes with a leather strap and is compatible with any watch band of the right size.

In conversation VentureBeat, Pebble founder and CEO Eric Migicovsky was asked, “How can we get our watches on more wrists around the world?” According to the report, the answer his company came up with was to create a device that looks good on and fits comfortably on smaller wrists. The original Pebble was released in 2013, and the line has since been praised for its wide open approach to customisation, its store of free apps and watchfaces and its e-paper screen that, unlike other smartwatches, is never off.
