PEB­BLE STEEL

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TECH -

$ 268

Peb­ble’s smart­watch 2.0 looks less like a garage pas­sion project and more like a high- end time­piece. Gone is its plas­tic body, re­placed by a milled stain­lesssteel con­sole, fit­ted with tough Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass and com­ing with both metal and leather wrist straps.

The 50m wa­ter re­sis­tance re­mains, as does its com­pat­i­bil­ity with Google and Ap­ple phones, and though the watch weighs 18g more, it’s 6mm shorter, 2mm nar­rower and sig­nif­i­cantly slicker.

A new app store with more fit­ness and weather apps, a dis­creet LED light and bet­ter mag­netic charger round out a com­pelling gad­get.
