Pebble announced its second smartwatch during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show and we just had a chance to get up close and personal with the latest wearable — the Pebble Steel.
While we only had a few minutes to check out the Pebble Steel, we were immediately impressed by the much more premium design that it offers. Unfortunately, however, only the matte black metal and the leather band were available for us to see, though we were able to check out the steel-colored front face as well. Thankfully, though, what we did see already has us reaching for our wallets. We also know that any new apps developed for Pebble Steel will still work with the original Pebble — so we won’t be left out in the cold with any new apps once the app store goes live later this month.
The band itself felt a bit heavier than the rubber on the Pebble — but that comes with the territory of using steel as opposed to a cheaper material. We can’t wait for ours to arrive (we already pre-ordered one). In the meantime, check out our gallery of the Pebble Steel above.
