By most metrics Pebble has been a bonafide indie success, the poster child for successful crowdfunding campaigns and the darling of the quickly emerging smartwatch market. While Pebble has been generally well received it is not without criticism, the most often cited being that the dressed-down design. The Pebble team has heard the criticism, announcing the Pebble Steel at CES last month.

I like the Gear and think the 2nd Gear will be pretty cool, especially if it will work with most Android phones. I also love the Pebble, I have the original and wear it daily. I also think the Steel has really improved the design. I am just excited about how companies are really trying to compete in the wearable tech market.

I certainly appreciate the more classic design they came with this time but still, I think that it could have looked much better.

Sorry - but what kind of a review is this? What about battery life and other software features like notifications etc? Instead they just mentioned about the display and some apps? and then came up with a rating of 8.5? wth !

For a more in-depth look at the software side check out our original Pebble review, or the Pebble Redux followup. We did cover the new software features that debuted along side Steel, but the Steel is largely a hardware change which is what this review is.
