Well, just few hours before the CES kicked off yesterday, some pics showing the Pebble steel smartwatch had leaked out and yes its official now! Pebble sticks-to-its-guns and delivers the promised word of “something special” to arrive at the CES. And it could certainly be said that the new Pebble Steel has upped the style ante of the smartwatch.
The Pebble Steel will be completely compatible to all Pebble apps. The new Pebble Steel consists of two stainless steel version-matte black and the brushed metal. The matte black version is made with the same Physical Vapor Deposition technology as used by the luxury phone maker Vertu.
The rich, premium and corporate look that the new Pebble steel smartwatch sports is absolutely praiseworthy. Users get two wrist straps in each box-one metal and one black leather. Some more hardware additions include a RGB color LED charging indicator and the Gorilla Glass with anti-fingerprint coating. Other all features are the same like the e-paper display, 5ATM water resistance and the button positions as well. But now the buttons will be of metal here!
The new Pebble steel is priced at 249$ and Pebble will begin the shipments from 28th of this January. So don’t wait a moment and pre-order your Pebble Steel on the getpebble.com.
In addition to this, Pebble also confirms the launch of its “dedicated app store” that we covered earlier!
Apart from this one more big news from Pebble is that it has teamed up with various blue-chip companies in diverse business segments like automobile and Television. The list of its partners includes Mercedes, ESPN and Pandora. All the three will be presenting their cool new apps on the Pebble at the CES.
