Despite being criticized for its plastic look, the Pebble Time smartwatch raised millions on Kickstarter in just hours. The campaign has currently raised over $12 million. Due to its success, Pebble has been able to add a new model of the smartwatch called Pebble Time Steel. It offers "All the features of Pebble Time, dressed up and ready to go", and adds:
● CNC-finished 316L stainless steel casing.
● Premium leather and stainless steel strap.
● Up to 10 days of battery life.
Pebble Time Steel is available in three stainless steel finishes:
● Silver with a stone leather band
● Gunmetal black with a black leather band
● Gold with red leather band
All Time Steels come with both a leather and matching metal band.
