Classier Pebble Steel now shipping
The software and the apps from the original model are still supported on the new one. There are a number of cool looking watch face designs that you can choose from. With a battery that lasts 5 to 7 days before requiring a recharge, the timepiece is waterproof to 5 atmospheres (170 feet) and is available in Matte Black and Brushed Steel for $249.
The Pebble website says that supplies are limited, so if you're interested in your very own Pebble Steel, we wouldn't let too much, uh, time expire. Pebble Steel runs all of the same apps as the original Pebble, pairs with your Android and iOS phone like the original. One thing to consider. At 56g, the new metal version of the watch is about 50% heavier than the original plastic Pebble. Still, it is a more fashionable design that you might even be able to sneak into the boardroom.
The new Pebble Steel is now shipping

I might buy one of these in a few months, but I want to see what the Gear 2 and the iwatch will be like.

What an ugly beast. Reminds me of the old Casio watches with the calculators on them.
