Pebble Time Round review

 

The best-looking Pebble yet, but at a cost in terms of functionality

It's lighter and better-looking than any Pebble before, but the battery life and app compatibility mean those in the market for the brand may prefer a Pebble Time Steel.

Pebble Time Round coming to the UK sooner than you think, we take a first look

 

It didn't seem long after the launch of the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel smartwatches that the company unveiled another model in the line-up. However, while it is in the same family, and with the same colour Pebble OS and Timeline software, the...

Pebble Time Round

 

Hot on the heels of the Pebble Time and flashier Pebble Time Steel comes the Pebble Time Round, a different take on a smartwatch from the once tiny, Kickstarted-funded start-up.

For a woman, you have very hairy hands.

Pebble Time Round review

 

A smartwatch... but for women?

Nice looking ; Lightweight ; Easy to use

Overwhelming bezel ; Two-day battery life ; Can’t really do anything without a phone

The Pebble Time Round is svelte enough and looks the part, but doesn’t do all that much

Pebble Time Round Review: In Depth

 

Pebble Time Round review: Not only is Pebble's latest smartwatch round, it's the thinnest on the market. But are the trade-offs worth it to achieve those looks?DesignUntil now Pebble has produced four…

Charges quickly ; Clean, simple user interface ; Wonderfully slim and lightweight ; Rich watch face and app selection

Battery life could be better ; Low colour and pixel count ; Small display with thick bezels ; Aesthetic combinations can be hit or miss

Pebble has made some notable sacrifices to its established smartwatch recipe with the Round. Parts of the Pebble Time Round experience give the impression of an anti-establishment smartwatch. It shuns touchscreens and LCDs in place of buttons and...

Pebble Time Round: A beautiful smartwatch, with compromises

 

The Pebble Time Round is the ultimate normcore smartwatch.

Looks great, especially on smaller wrists ; Waterproof ; Battery life is better than the Apple Watch and most Android Wear watches

Limited app and watchface selection ; Feels more expensive than it should ; Screen not very vibrant

This is the best-looking Pebble yet and a great choice for women. I just wish it was $50 cheaper and had more apps.

Pebble Time Round review: A smartwatch that doesn’t seem like one

 

The Pebble Time Round might actually appeal to smartwatch haters.

Slim design is uniquely appealing compared to other smartwatches ; Battery easily lasts two days, and charges quickly ; Maintains the Pebble character with always-on, customizable watch faces

Round display lacks app support, even from existing partners ; Printed minute markers on some models clash with non-analog watch faces ; iPhone support still far behind Android

Pebble's new look does a fine job of papering over the platform's biggest flaws.

Pebble Time Round review: A prettier design comes with tradeoffs

 

The Pebble Time Round is without doubt the most elegant smartwatch Pebble has ever made. It's slim, lightweight and fits smaller wrists well. Unfortunately, that fashionable design comes at a cost: It has far shorter battery life than previous Pebbles...

Thin,lightweight design ; Color e-paper is easy to read under bright light ; Potential for third-party "smart straps"

Reduced battery life ; Less water-resistant than previous models ; Expensive for what it is

The Pebble Time Round is the most elegant smartwatch Pebble has ever made. It's thin, light and comes in widths that would fit even the most slender of wrists. Its circular, all-metal chassis and options for both leather and metal straps make this a...

Pebble Time Round (20mm, Black with Nero Black Leather)

 

So it's funny that Pebble's newest watch, Pebble Time Round, gives up the things that made it so unique. It's like an O. Henry story of smartwatches: The Round finally has a sharp design and a super-slim build, but now it can't be worn swimming. Its...

Sharp construction and a thin, comfortable design; always-on screen; voice-dictation support in apps; works with iPhone and Android; clever at-a-glance timeline feature.

Shorter battery life than previous Pebble watches; not water resistant for swimming; expensive for what it offers; doesn't run all Pebble apps and watch faces.

Pebble's newest round, thin watch takes the Pebble formula and shrinks it to a stylish design, but gives up battery life and some app support in the process.

Review: Pebble Time Round

 

A few days after I started wearing the Time Round, Pebble's ultra-thin new smartwatch, I shut off notifications. This was partly practical—I get too many notifications, and the iPhone offers no filtering control over them—but also a thought experiment....

You guys, it looks like a watch! Thin and light and small enough to work for almost anyone. Battery lasts days, plural. It doesn't try to do too much

The price still feels like more than the sum of its parts. The screen's dim and soft. This is basically still an Android-only device

1 UPDATE: An earlier version of this piece said the Time Round was made of plastic. It’s actually made of stainless steel. It just feels like plastic.
