Pebble can be considered as one of the oldest smartwatch companies in the world. Pebble Time Steel is the latest addition to their lineup of smartwatches. In fact, it is the successor of Pebble Steel. This new smartwatch comes along with a wide range of new and interesting features. Brand new design, color screen and the revamped software holds a prominent place out of them.
Who is it for?
Pebble Time Steel can be purchased from the market at a reasonable price tag of $250. If you are looking for a fashionable smartwatch that is equipped with a curved glass and aluminum body, you can think of purchasing it. However, it is important to keep in mind that Pebble Time Steel does not come along with all the whistles and bells that can be found in Apple and Android smartwatches – no digital scroll wheel, no heart sensors and no touchscreen.
The first thing that you would notice in Pebble Time Steel is its metallic and angular design. It is more curved than the predecessors. The design of Pebble Time Steel consists of a soft aluminum body, a subtly curved glass screen and a polished bezel. These features have enhanced the elegant appearance of the watch. The smartwatch is paired with a leather band and it has delivered a handsome look to the watch. It matches perfectly well with the personality and style of modern world men.
The Pebble Time Steel features an e-paper screen. The original Pebble had a monochrome screen, but this comes along with a color display. The machined stainless steel buttons can be used to navigate through the available features. This display is equipped with a 64 color palette and it has a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
The color display of Pebble Time Steel has significantly reduced the battery life. You will be able to use the smartwatch for 10 consecutive days after a full charge. This will keep you away from the hassle of daily charging.
The user interface of Pebble Time Steel is the same as original Pebble. It is simple and user friendly and you can access all the features that you want with minimum hassle. In fact, you will be able to receive seamless notification to your wrist through this smartwatch. It comes along with basic fitness tracking features as well.
Pebble Time Steel is compatible with a wide range of smart straps and they have the potential to enhance the functionality of it. For example, the smart watch does not have GPS tracking or heart rate monitoring. You can experience those features by purchasing smart straps that are compatible with the watch.
People who are looking to get notifications on the wrist without pulling the phone out can think of purchasing this smartwatch. It is the best looking smartwatch that you can purchase for the price range
