The Pebble Time can now be pre-ordered in the United States for $199.99
The Pebble has long been one of Kickstarter's greatest exports, and after yet another hugely successful campaign that raised an eye-watering $20 million, the all-new Pebble Time has shipped out to most of those who jumped on the fundraiser. Those who didn't pledge any money during the Kictstarter window can still get their hands, or rather wrists, on the Pebble Time, but as emerged a short while ago, pre-orders in the U.S. are exclusive to Best Buy. After the announcement that pre-orders would commence from today, June 22nd, everything is running to schedule, and as such, pre-orders for the Pebble Time are now officially live at Best Buy. 

The retailer has the Pebble Time (not the Pebble Time Steel) in the Black, Red and White color configurations. If you are looking to snap up the wearable credited with forging the smartwatch market as we know it, you're looking at an outlay of $200. For that price, you get a wrist computer that pairs with both iOS and Android platforms through Bluetooth 4.0, sports a 1.25-inch color e-paper display, and boasts a whole week's worth of battery life. 

The flashier Pebble Time Steel variant is not yet available to pre-order. It will make retail at some point in the near future, though, and we'll keep you posted as and when it becomes available for pre-order. 

In the meantime, here are the direct pre-order links for the Black, Red and White variants of the Pebble Time:

I loved the original Pebble and I sort of like my LG G Watch. But both were only $50. So I can't even imagine spending $199 on a color screened Pebble. The one thing the pebble did do better than my G Watch was that it allowed me to control Pandora on my phone without ever touching my phone. Other than that, the battery life is moot because I always charge my Smartwatch every night, and it's vibrate was definitely more noticeable than the G Watch. I think I'm going to give my old Pebble another try tomorrow. It's been a while since I've used it.

Pandora originally had support for Android Wear, then they dropped it over a month ago. Why? I do not know. But Pandora is crap nowadays, its like Pandora gave up on Android. My suggestions, go with another service. There are better options out there than what Pandora offers.

I'm gonna get the PT or the Steel version, but can't decide which I like better. I like the retro style of the PT, and I already have 2 metal watches in silver (won't consider gold). I don't love the bezel on either, but the Steel's bezel just looks enormous, where the PT at least has the larger outside edge to hide some of the black bezel. 7 vs 10 days battery isn't an issue, I charge my current original Pebble usually every 4-5 days cause i can't handle anything getting low charge. Price isn't too big an issue, I cashed in $250 in Best Buy gift cards, so either way i'm not paying much. Any thoughts on which I should get?
