But it's also new bod on a gadget that's in imminent danger of falling way behind the curve.Laptop Magazine80Pebble Steel ReviewThe Steel isn't perfect. For the price, we'd expect more room for apps, and the Pebble doesn't have the same whizbang features of its competitors. But overall, we'd much rather wear the Pebble Steel than any other smartwatch.CNET80Pebble Steel review: The first smartwatch worth weEqual parts fashionable and functional, the Pebble Steel leaps to the top of the smartwatch heap, but does so by improving existing tech rather than adding something totally new.Wired70Pebble SteelPebble’s approach is to provide simplified access to what’s most important and most relevant on your smartphone. It’s still not something most of us really need, but now at least the overall package looks good enough to disguise this triviality.TechCrunch90Pebble Steel And Pebble Appstore Review: The SmartOverall, though, the Pebble Steel improves on the original in all the hardware aspects where it felt like it could’ve used a bit more time in the oven, and leaves relatively untouched the software stuff that the startup got right.Engadget90Pebble Steel review: at last, a stylish smartwatchThe Pebble Steel doesn't introduce any new functionality, but it represents a big step forward in smartwatch design.PC Mag80Pebble Steel SmartwatchThe Pebble Steel is as mature as smartwatches come; it couples sophisticated design with a burgeoning Pebble app store, and cements its place atop the competition.Ars Technica80The Pebble Steel review: Wearables 2.0 arriveIn a real way, Pebble Steel introduces us to the second iteration of wearable computing.

In a nutshell, we like it (although the jury's still out on the name itself).PC MagNot RatedHands On With the Pebble Steel SmartwatchThe device is built on the same hardware platform as the original watch, though it has double the 64KB of memory in the first-gen Pebbles. There's a single LED light under the Pebble Steel display that lights up when it's being charged and can be used to signal incoming notifications.Pocket-Lint100Pebble Steel reviewIf you want a smartwatch and need to look presentable then the Pebble Steel certainly makes the "smart" in smartwatch mean more than just being clever. It's one smart looking device too and is hands-down the best smartwatch available on the market now.TechHive70Review: Pebble Steel classes up the smartwatchThe Pebble Steel offers a stylish design, in contrast to the original Pebble's more sporty construction. It tells the time and displays notifications subtly.SlashGear80Pebble Steel ReviewLove or hate the new design, you can't fault Pebble for how it has balanced its existing user and developer base while simultaneously appealing to a wider audience.Mashable90Pebble Steel Review: The World's Best Smartwatch GAt $249.99, the Pebble Steel is an attractive and very capable smartwatch.

Sure it's mostly a companion device to a smartphone but therein lies the beauty, because your smartphone is at the centre of your digital life.The first pleasant surprise came while I was riding to work, I ride a Vespa scooter, as a message came through from WhatsApp and I got a gentle vibration on my wrist. I could easily and quickly have a look at the Pebble face and see at a glance who sent the message and the first few lines of text.At work I have my phone mostly on vibrate and many times having the watch alert me of the goings-on on my phone was extremely handy. Things my regular wrist watch could never do.And as far as the watch function, I prefer an analogue representation of time and the Pebble has me covered with several nice analogue watch faces. Given the low power consuming e-ink I needn't press a button to reveal the time, I simply glance at it, and can read the time without difficulty in natural and artificial lighting. At night I press a button to illuminate the display, as one does with most digital watches, and there is also a feature to use the built-in accelerometer to shake-to-illuminate.Elegant and stylish combined with digital and smart. It is a sign of things to come. If I could have one thing improved it would be the battery. Though 7 days is a nice amount of days to go between charges, 30, or 90, heck 365 days would be awesome; I would choose improved battery life over things like more app capacity or even things like higher resolution and/or colour.The apps in the app store are well varied and can augment the watch to suit different lifestyles, and the Pebble smartphone app helps manage the watch with ease. The people at Pebble have certainly done their homework and I look forward to seeing some cool new apps and especially what kind of watch they might be working on next.Engadget Reader90February 23, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80February 7, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!So, I just got my Pebble Steel yesterday, and since this is my first smart watch, I didn't really know what to expect. But so far, so good. The watch itself is smaller and lighter than I anticipated, which are good things. It is quite beautiful (mine is silver with the black leather band), but I could do without the prominent Pebble logo. The leather band isn't great quality, which is a bummer for a $250 watch. It came beautiful packaged, though, so if you planning to give this as a gift, the recipient will be impressed by the box alone. Setup with my iPhone 5s was very simple and the Bluetooth connection worked beautifully. Loading apps is easy and there are quite a few, though a lot of them probably aren't all that useful. You can only load eight apps at the same time, but you can store additional in the "apps locker." Each of the available watch faces counts as an app, so keep that in mind--you can go a bit crazy with all the cool choices. To me, the fact that I can get my e-mails on the phone is pretty cool, and there really isn't any lag between the phone and the watch. But this is read-only--you can't do anything with the messages directly from the watch (as far as I can tell). Same with text messages. Not sure what the Bluetooth range is, but I assume it's as with most devices. Overall, in the very short time I have had it, I am very happy with it. Sure, a color display and maybe even a camera would be great, but then, this is an elegant, business-type watch with some smart features, and not a full-fledged SciFi watch that only a hardcore techie would put on. I can wear this to a board meeting, get compliments on the look of it and discreately check my messages with a flick of my writs. Works for me.
