Well, it’s absent no more! Pebble has added two special edition Pebble Time Rounds to its Kickstarter for the new watches. Now, backers can choose from a polished silver or polished gold Time Round, on top of the watches already on offer through the campaign, which include the Pebble 2, Pebble Time 2, and Pebble Core, a new device aimed at fitness tracking and music playback.
The Pebble Time Round is arguably the best-looking Pebble watch to date, offering a thin and light design, as well as an always-on display, two days of battery life, voice control, and so on. At first glance, it really just looks like a classic-looking watch rather than a smartwatch, something many other smartwatches have failed to do. The device also offers quick charging, which gives you a full day of use in 15 minutes. The watch will even keep tabs on your activity and sleep patterns.
If you back the campaign to get a Pebble Time Round, you’ll be sent a survey in July to clarify your color choice, and while Pebble says that the watches will continue to be sold for $200 after the campaign, the company notes that there will be “limited supply.”
Should you prefer to go for two watches, you can get a combo pack with the Pebble Time Round and Pebble 2 for $300 — giving you one watch for everyday wear and tear and one for classier events. Of course, the rest of the 2016 Pebble lineup is still up for grabs through the Kickstarter campaign, which is currently sitting at over a cool $11 million.
