Pebble Time Steel review: Steel-ing the smartwatch limelight?

 

When the Pebble Time Steel was first released, we decided to give our first impressions rather than rush into a full review straight away. There were a couple of reasons for this: firstly, we had not long before reviewed the Pebble Time and save for...

Gives an average of seven-days battery life per charge, iPhone and Android connectivity, solid design, full-colour screen is always-on, simple to use, waterproof to 30-metres

No touchscreen, not as vibrant as rivals, not as many apps as Android Wear or Apple Watch

There are some who won't be as enamoured with the Pebble Time Steel as we are and that's fine: there are plenty of alternatives in the shape of Android Wear devices, Samsung rivals or the Apple Watch, and many are around the same price.

Pebble Time Steel review

 

Surprise, there's a grown-up version of the Pebble Time smartwatch

Best looking Pebble yet ; Color e-paper display ; Extra-long battery life ; Comfortable ; Works with iOS, Android

More expensive ; Very similar to Pebble Time ; Limited abilities without a phone ; Simplistic apps

With all the same basic benefits and limits as the Pebble Time, the Steel edition is just there for people who want slightly higher-grade construction.

Pebble Time Steel review: Does some added metal improve the Pebble experience?

 

Feels more premium, costs more, but is it worth it?

Class leading battery life ; Comfortable strap ; Premium feel

Large bezel remains ; Lost charm of original model

Pebble Time Steel

 

The Pebble Time Steel is a more luxurious version of the Pebble Time, the watch launched via a record-breaking Kickstarter project. It packs in the same features and specs as the original, but adds a stainless-steel watch face and an impressive 10-day...

Notifications delivered in a really useful way ; Waterproof design means you can take it swimming ; More luxurious stainless steel watch face

Has a thicker screen bezel than the Pebble Time ; Leather strap is most unattractive of the strap options ; Still needs some better watch faces

Improved looks and a better battery life put the Pebble Time Steel slightly ahead of the Pebble Time. However, it's too expensive for what's on offer.

Pebble Time Steel review

 

Pebble goes all heavy metal on us

Fab battery life ; Comfortable ; Small, comfy design

Pretty similar to Pebble Time ; Apps are generally simple, low-key

A bit too similar to the Time for comfort, but still a blissfully easy-to-live with, long-lasting smartwatch.

Pebble Time Steel Review: In Depth

 

Pebble Time Steel Review: This all-new stainless steel version of the Pebble Time watch promises extended battery life. But is it better than the original?

More grown-up design ; Choice of bands ; Longer battery life

Thick bezels ; Same iffy notifications

The Pebble Time Steel is £50 more than the original Pebble Time (which costs just £179) and for that price you get a more grown-up design and even better battery life.

Hands on: Pebble Time Steel and Pebble Time review

 

Pebble's new Steel steals the show, and the plastic version isn't half bad either

When we arrived at Mobile World Congress on Sunday, the last thing we were expecting to see was another version of the Pebble Time, hard on the heels of such a phenomenal Kickstarter for the standard Pebble Time. But we’re glad it did.

Pebble Time Steel vs. Pebble Steel: 10 Day Battery Life, Anyone?

 

Can Pebble take on the Apple Watch? Based on just how keen people seem to be about both designs, one could argue that, yes, they certainly do stand a chance of doing what Android Wear failed to do in 2014 –– actually sell in quantities approaching...

Pebble Time Steel review: An absolute delight, but remember it is not your conventional smartwatch - Tech2

 

We review the stylish Pebble Time Steel which adds a colour epaper display

The Pebble is not your typical smartwatch. If it’s flash you’re after, this isn’t the watch for you. If it’s brands you’re after, this isn’t the watch for you. If it’s photos and videos you’re after, this isn’t the watch for you.

Pebble Time Steel ( Gold with Red Leather Band)

 

After living my spring and most of the summer with the Apple Watch , I've gotten into a routine with watch-charging, taking it off my wrist each night. But I like to keep my watch on all the time. That's the biggest advantage Pebble watches have over...

Solid, all-steel construction; boosted battery life should last over a week; 30 meters water resistant; always-on display; works with iPhone and Android phones.

Design doesn't look much different than the less-expensive non-steel Pebble Time; can't make phone calls; fitness tracking is less accurate than rival wearables.

Pebble's step-up all-steel smartwatch has added battery life and a more durable feel, but it's basically a tiny upgrade to the less expensive Pebble Time.
