Lightest and thinnest smartwatch, Pebble Time Round to ship from November 8
It’s that time of the year when all new Pebble Time Round, the first round dial Pebble smartwatch will start selling. Scheduled to go on sale beginning November 8 (Sunday) for $249, the Pebble smartwatch will be available in range of band options and in different sizes. The Time Round will be available through Best Buy, Amazon, Target stores and company website, and it will also start shipping to customers who have per-ordered the smartwatch after the launch announcement in September.
The Time Round is the first round dial Pebble smartwatch as informed. It measures only 7.5mm thick and weighs 28 grams, which makes it the thinnest and the lightest smartwatch on the market.
The cool new smartwatch features an always-on e-paper display (it does not consume extra battery), and it carries almost all the features from Pebble Time. The watch allows you to check notifications, can take incoming calls, control music and even read or reply to messages using built-in microphone.
Unlike the Pebble Time, Pebble Time Round does not have a 7 day battery life, instead it lasts for just two days on a single charge. Interestingly though, the watch features quick charging, which company claims, can charge the Pebble Time Round battery in under 15 minutes and it can last at least a day.
Pebble Time Round is made from marine-grade stainless steel and it features a scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass display. The new round watch has been made iOS compatible and it still works with Android devices.
The Pebble Time Round will be available in Black, Silver, or a special-edition Rose Gold options with 14mm or 20mm band sizes.
