Background and Identification
Pebble Time smartwatches are made by the Pebble Technology company. The original Pebble Time was funded by crowd sourcing through the Kickstarter website, and broke records to become the most funded Kickstarter ever, with around 80,000 backers donating a total of $20 million dollars. Pebble smartwatches can connect to Android and iOS phones using a Bluetooth connection. They can then run apps to play music on the connected phone, show fitness and sleep data, and set timers. Notably, Pebble smartphones use their own operating system, called the Pebble OS, where users can download apps to the smartwatch.
The Pebble Time Steel is a variation of the Pebble Time that uses steel and leather to make up the casing and strap for the watch. It also has a 10 day advertised battery life, which is longer than the Pebble Time. In most other ways, though the Pebble Time Steel is similar to the Pebble Time. This smartwatch notably uses physical buttons instead of a touchscreen. CNet’s review of the Pebble Time Steel concluded that it is a solid budget smartwatch, with good battery life, but “it's basically a tiny upgrade to the less expensive Pebble Time.”
