The Pebble Time Round comes in two sizes – 20mm and 14mm. It is available in black, silver, and rose gold. The rose gold variant is only available in 14mm band size. The company is also planning to introduce leather bands when the smartwatch sees a commercial launch.
One of the key big highlights of Pebble smartwatches, was their big battery life. However, to make the round-dial smartwatch, the company had to compromise on this element, and the Pebble Time Round lasts for two days on one charge. However, it still has more battery life than its competitors, and also comes with quick charging. The company claims that the smartwatch can run for 24 hours in just 15 minutes of charging.
Unlike the previous smartwatches that were launched on Kickstarter, the Pebble Time Round is now available for pre-order directly on the company website. The smartwatch is priced at $249, and Pebble hopes to ship the new smartwatch from November. Also, customers who had backed the Pebble Time Steel are also getting an additional $50 discount.
