Pebble Steel.

We've gotten our first look at the new Pebble Steel — and now it's your turn. Available in either brushed stainless or matte black, Pebble Steel addresses what was one of our main complaints (and to be fair, we haven't had many) about the original Pebble — plastic just lacks the sophistication of metal. 

So Pebble Steel is your dad's smartwatch. Better materials, better bands. Same e-paper display, same water-resistance, same excellent extensibility. 

After the break, we present a gallery of Pebble's latest and greatest, the $249 Pebble Steel.

Could really use a photo on your wrist, so I can get a sense of the size of the new face.

nohoooooo just when i decided i realy don't need a pebble watch becouse it's not nice enough... they do this and make it completly beautifull... and they make it more expensive...

i hates them, we hates them all...

now i need some of that watches...

Pretty bulky and ugly if you ask me, I will wait until they slim these down and fine tune the product over time.

This product is not a need.

That is a really nice case design, almost a tonneau shape. Now they just need to make it half as thick :) It's the exact same screen,eh? No bump in resolution?

I was hoping for a sleek modern design. This looks like early 90s tat. I'll keep waiting as I want one. But they are ultimately a fashion accessory, and these look like they're trying hard to be cool.

Still looks utter crap. That tiny screen on the face of the watch is a joke. Right now Sony owns the design element of all smartwatches. No one else has come close.

It's all in the eye of the beholder, I guess. I'm impressed with the steel. I think the logo is sized just right, in the right position, and muted enough so that it doesn't distract from the watch face.

Based on the reviews, and my son's glowing praise of his V1 Pebble, I'm pretty confident it will meet my needs, functionally.

I pre-ordered the stainless yesterday, and expecting shipment mid-February.
