Relatively shortly after the Pebble Time and Time Steel, Pebble has announced the Pebble Time Round – and, you guessed it, it’s a round Pebble. It looks absolutely fantastic, so much so that it makes you wonder why they bothered with the Time and Steel to begin with. Much like other round Android Wear watches, this thing further drives the point home that round is the way to go for those of us who want to wear a watch, and not a mini smartphone.
Pebble Time Round is faithful to timeless watch design while being a true Pebble at heart. The beautiful, always-on, e-paper display discreetly camouflages the smarts within.[…]
At 7.5mm thin and weighing just 28 grams, Pebble Time Round is the thinnest and lightest smartwatch in the world.
It’s $249, and there’s a trade-in program in place for Pebble Time and Steel backers who may want to switch to the Round.
