Pebble Turns to Steel
Pebble today announced the Pebble Steel smartwatch. It runs all the same apps and services as the existing Pebble smartwatch, but packages it into a thinner, more attractive piece of hardware made with stainless steel. The Pebble Steel comes in either black or a brushed, natural look, and also adds an RGB notification light to help users see their notifications. The Pebble Steel will ship starting on January 28 and will cost $249 ($100 more than the original Pebble). In addition to the Pebble Steel, Pebble also announced that the Pebble app store is primed for launch later this month. Pebble encourages developers to get submit their apps by January 9 so they may be in the App Store at launch.
