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.
