Pebble Time Round review: A smartwatch that doesn’t seem like one

 

The Pebble Time Round might actually appeal to smartwatch haters.

Slim design is uniquely appealing compared to other smartwatches ; Battery easily lasts two days, and charges quickly ; Maintains the Pebble character with always-on, customizable watch faces

Round display lacks app support, even from existing partners ; Printed minute markers on some models clash with non-analog watch faces ; iPhone support still far behind Android

Pebble's new look does a fine job of papering over the platform's biggest flaws.

Pebble Time Round review: A prettier design comes with tradeoffs

 

The Pebble Time Round is without doubt the most elegant smartwatch Pebble has ever made. It's slim, lightweight and fits smaller wrists well. Unfortunately, that fashionable design comes at a cost: It has far shorter battery life than previous Pebbles...

Thin,lightweight design ; Color e-paper is easy to read under bright light ; Potential for third-party "smart straps"

Reduced battery life ; Less water-resistant than previous models ; Expensive for what it is

The Pebble Time Round is the most elegant smartwatch Pebble has ever made. It's thin, light and comes in widths that would fit even the most slender of wrists. Its circular, all-metal chassis and options for both leather and metal straps make this a...

Pebble Time Round (20mm, Black with Nero Black Leather)

 

So it's funny that Pebble's newest watch, Pebble Time Round, gives up the things that made it so unique. It's like an O. Henry story of smartwatches: The Round finally has a sharp design and a super-slim build, but now it can't be worn swimming. Its...

Sharp construction and a thin, comfortable design; always-on screen; voice-dictation support in apps; works with iPhone and Android; clever at-a-glance timeline feature.

Shorter battery life than previous Pebble watches; not water resistant for swimming; expensive for what it offers; doesn't run all Pebble apps and watch faces.

Pebble's newest round, thin watch takes the Pebble formula and shrinks it to a stylish design, but gives up battery life and some app support in the process.

Review: Pebble Time Round

 

A few days after I started wearing the Time Round, Pebble's ultra-thin new smartwatch, I shut off notifications. This was partly practical—I get too many notifications, and the iPhone offers no filtering control over them—but also a thought experiment....

You guys, it looks like a watch! Thin and light and small enough to work for almost anyone. Battery lasts days, plural. It doesn't try to do too much

The price still feels like more than the sum of its parts. The screen's dim and soft. This is basically still an Android-only device

1 UPDATE: An earlier version of this piece said the Time Round was made of plastic. It’s actually made of stainless steel. It just feels like plastic.

Pebble, the company that had everyone thinking about smartwatches again, has had a busy year. It launched a brand new watch, the Pebble Time, this spring, complete with an entirely revamped...

Compact size ; Attractive design ; Good build quality

Limited app options ; Shorter battery life than other Pebble watches ; Display isn't vibrant

Pebble Time Round review: A smartwatch that doesn’t seem like one

 

One universal truth about consumer electronics is that they never have enough battery life. Instead, gadget makers opt for thinner and lighter designs, and battery is the first thing to go in pursuit that extra curb appeal.

Pebble Time Round review

 

What does the first circular smartwatch from Pebble have to offer? We find out, in this comprehensive Pebble Time Round review!

Elegant design is thin, light, beautiful ; Round display is Pebble's first, used well for apps and info ; Performance snappy and reliable ; Battery charges up in very little time ; Voice input is still good, leverages Android Wear well ; Time OS is...

Display backlight sometimes tough to trigger ; Bright daylight viewing can be a little difficult ; Only 2 day battery life ; Apps still haven't fully made the transition to round software ; Not applicable in as many situations (only splash resistant)

For its design and the well-performing functions this smartwatch does offer, users will look to the Time Round as the watch they want when simplistic elegance is the order of the day.

Pebble Time Round reviewed: You can judge this book by its cover

 

Pebble's newest smartwatch is mostly different in design—and that's the point.

Sophisticated, ultra-thin design makes the Time Round the prettiest smartwatch Pebble has made yet. ; Compatible with both Android and iOS devices. ; Timeline interface makes it easy to see what's going on at any portion of your day.

Short battery life compared to existing Pebble devices. ; You can't filter smartphone notifications to the watch—it will vibrate and light up with every alert that the phone receives. ; $250 is a lot to ask for this smartwatch.

Some may not understand why Pebble would waste time making a smartwatch that is smaller, has less battery life, and can support fewer apps and watchfaces than its predecessors, but it's a valid move for a company. Pebble's smartwatches have been very...

Pebble Time Round review: Incredibly thin watch, pretty thin value proposition

 

Pebble has been something of a pioneer in smartwatches, blowing up Kickstarter with its original Pebble watch back when wearable tech wasn't much more than a concept. The company's latest smartwatch has one killer feature, but its pricing puts it in...

Pebble Time Round Review: Beauty In Simplicity

 

Smartwatches are subjected to many metaphors: “Smartphones on your wrist.” Mmm, not quite. Maybe in a few more years. “A wearable computer.” Depends on your definition of “computer.” Better keep looking. “An extension of your smartphone.” Now, that's...
