Pebble’s Time Round now comes in polished gold and silver
When Pebble unveiled its latest line of watches for 2016, noticeably absent was a successor to the Time Round, a bummer for those who love its thinner and circular design. To appease Round lovers, the company is releasing a couple of new special Kickstarter editions that come in polished gold and silver. It has that same round color e-paper display as before, along with a marine-grade stainless steel chassis. These particular editions have a black bezel with smoked numbers on the three-hour marks and ship with a 20mm black leather band. It’s worth noting that these new Round models do not have optical heart sensors like the recently announced Pebble 2 and Time 2.
You can of course pick one of these watches up later, but if you pre-order it now via Pebble’s current Kickstarter campaign, you’ll get it before anyone else. It’s $199 if you want to get it by itself, but if you fancy having one watch for sporty activities and another for everyday wear, you can get a combo pack with the Pebble 2 for $298. Pebble tells us that current backers can change their pledges to a different reward tier while the campaign is still ongoing. If you decide to add it later, you can simply specify it in a later Reward survey.
