Pebble Time Round

Smart technology is the talk of the town today, with smartwatches being the most popular. While Apple and Samsung are enjoying immense popularity with their high-end smartwatches there are hundreds of other companies that are launching their own range of smartwatches that incorporate modern technology and offer a delightful user experience.

Introducing Pebble Time Round

Pebble Technology Corporation launched its first smart watch called the Pebble Smartwatch in 2013 and received rave reviews for its sleek rectangular design and smart capability. In order to stay on par with the competition, Pebble has now introduced a sleeker and smarter watch called the Pebble Time Round. Being just 7.8mm in width, Pebble Time Round is the thinnest and lightest smartwatch in the market today with a stylish round dial that can be flaunted as a fashion statement.
