Pebble Time & Time Round Get $50 Price Cut In The US

March 2, 2016 - Written By Mihai Matei

Last November Pebble decided to try and put smartwatches on the wrists of more gadget lovers, and thus, the company began offering the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel at lower prices as part of a pre-Black Friday limited-time discount. Evidently the offer is no longer available, but the good news for bargain hunters looking for a new opportunity to buy a Pebble smartwatch at a lower price, is that the company permanently dropped the prices of both the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round in the US by $50. Furthermore, the company also reduced the EU and UK prices for the rest of the Pebble lineup.

The Pebble Time was originally launched on the 24th of May 2015 at the price of $199.99. It was the company’s first smartwatch to sport an LED-backlit 64 colors e-paper display, which features a resolution of 144 x 168, adding up to a pixel density of roughly 182 pixels per inch. It also packs a Li-Ion battery rated at up to 7 days of usage, which is something you rarely get from today’s smartwatches. Following the recent price drop, the Pebble Time is now available in the US for $149.99. As for the Pebble Time Round, the smartwatch is largely powered by the same components as the Pebble Time, featuring an LED-backlit color e-paper screen similar to the rectangular model, but sacrificing battery life (rated at up to 2 days) in favor of a thinner profile and arguably a more elegant, compact design. The Time Round was first available for pre-order last year on September 23 at the price of $249.99. Now, prospective customers residing in the US can buy the timepiece for $199.99.

Pebble also announced “improved prices” for the smartwatch lineup available in the UK and Europe, with price reductions of up to 30% for all watches. The Pebble Time Round is accompanied by a new price tag of €229.95, whereas the Pebble Time now costs €169.95. The offer stands in online as well as physical stores; however prices might be slightly different depending on each region. Either way, these changes in pricing are permanent in all locations so you won’t have to worry about acting fast before the discount ends.
