Since taking the Kickstarter world by storm after its initial release, Pebble has continued to upgrade and improve its technology. The Pebble Time Steel is another solid iteration in Pebble’s line of dependable, and functional smart watches. Made from marine-grade, water-resistant stainless steel with an Italian leather band, this timepiece allows users to get incoming notifications, play music, check the sunrise and sunset, make hands-free calls, and much more. For those who prefer a more off-the-grid approach, the Time Steel can be programmed to filter out certain notifications to avoid unwanted pings. It also can help users keep track of their fitness with a built-in step counter and sleep tracker.
Note: This drop is for the Silver model only. With Fitbit’s recent acquisition of Pebble, all Pebble services—including the Pebble SDK, CloudPebble, Timeline APIs, firmware availability, mobile apps, developer portal, and Pebble appstore—will remain in service at this time. FitBit is going out of its way to keep Pebble software and services running through 2017, and they plan to preserve the Pebble experience far into the future.
While the 2.5D glass display only produces 64 colors, the Time Steel more than makes up for it with loads of functionality. It features a built-in mic for dictation on the go, a comprehensive weather app, thousands of different themes and looks, and a battery that provides up to 10 days of power—even when the watch runs out of juice it still displays the time. It will also keep track of your appointments, meetings, events, and plans with a continuous timeline that syncs to your calendar. Plus, the Pebble App Store is packed with handy applications you can download for extra functionality.
All orders will be shipped by the vendor.
