A couple of months ago, the folks at Pebble unveiled a new smartwatch in the form of the Pebble Time Round. Unlike the company’s previous offerings, the Pebble Time Round marks the first time the company has released a round smartwatch, joining the likes of Samsung, Motorola, LG, and so on.
The good news is that if you wanted to get your hands on the device, come 8th of November you will be able to. This was revealed by Pebble on their blog in which the 8th of November is when you can expect to find the Pebble Time Round at retail outlets. Customers will be able to pick one up for themselves via retailers such as Best Buy and Target.
Pebble also notes that those who pre-ordered the watch after their launch announcement in September can expect shipments to kick off on the 8th as well. Unfortunately if you were slow on the trigger when deciding if you should buy the Pebble Time Round, the listing on Pebble’s online store has suggested that you could wait as long as 2-4 weeks for your order to arrive.
In the meantime for those who are curious about the Pebble Time Round, essentially this is a Pebble smartwatch but with a round watchface, giving it a more traditional look. However there are some trade-offs. Early reviews have found that the watch now provides a couple of days worth of battery, as opposed to the week-long battery you would get from previous models, but if battery life is not a huge concern for you, then the Pebble Time Round could be worth checking out.
