Pebble is adding a new smartwatch to its lineup, the Pebble Time Round. As you might guess from the name, this new watch features a circular face and body, with the same color e-paper display of the Pebble Time and Time Steel.
The Pebble Time Round is just 7.5mm thick, making it thinner than previous Pebble models, and indeed, most other smartwatches. The watch supports two band sizes, 14mm and 20mm, and comes in Black and Silver, though the 14mm version is also available in Rose Gold. It also features a quick charging capability, which allows it to get a full charge in just 15 minutes.
Pebble Time Round will be avaialble for reservation soon at Pebble's website, along with Best Buy, Amazon, and Target for $249. It will ship to customers in November.
Pebble Time Steel Kickstarter backers are being offered a discount and trial plan for the Round. If you selected the Time Steel through Kickstarter, you can go ahead and reserve the Time Round now, and get a $50 discount when it ships. You'll be able to try the Round for 30 days alongside your Pebble Time Steel, and if you want to return either of the watches, your Pebble Time Round order will be refunded. If you want to keep both, you'll only be charged the discoutned price for the Pebble Time Round.
