Your wrist gets smarter with a Pebble smartwatch
The Pebble smartwatch is one of those Cinderella stories that happens once in a blue moon in tech. Born out of the ashes of the failed InPulse smartwatch, Pebble turned to Kickstarter for funding — and managing to set records and raise more than $10 million in the process.
Today, Pebble is one of the best-known and affordable smartwatches available.
There are two Pebble models currently available, at two price points. The original plastic Pebble costs $149. It's less of a looker but has the same internals and same functionality as its younger sibling, Pebble Steel.
As the name implies, Pebble Steel is a metal upgrade to the original. It's available in stainless steel silver or a matte black finish. Both come with an adjustable leather strap as well as an optional metal bracelet. (It takes just a small screwdriver and just a few minutes of your time to swap them out. Pebble Steel absolutely has a more classy, more professional look than its predecessor.
