Pebble Time Steel Is Official – Starts Shipping In July
Just last week Pebble unveiled their next generation wearable, the Pebble Time. This new smartwatch brought a brand new concept to the Pebble experience including a color screen, a more fluid OS, and much more. However the Pebble Time won’t be the only smartwatch on this new software. Today Pebble has launched a Kickstart campaign for the Pebble Time Steel.
The Pebble Time Steel has a very similar design to the Pebble Time, but with a metal body and band. Other changes include a bigger battery for up to 10 days of use, and support for smartstraps. Smartstraps can be used to add sensors and other functionality to the device.
The Pebble Time Steel will retail for $299, but if you act fast you can get it on Kickstarter for only $250. If you’ve already backed the original Pebble Time you can easily change your pledge to the Pebble Time Steel. The watch will start shipping in July and will likely hit retail stores around the same time.
