Pebble has slashed up to 35 percent off its latest smartwatches ahead of the holiday season. Its new Pebble Time can now be had for $129.99 — down from $199.99 — while the Pebble Classic can be had for just $69.99.
Pebble Time just got its first price cut since making its official debut on Kickstarter back in February, and it’s one worth taking advantage of. For a limited period, customers in the U.S. can save $50 — that’s 25 percent — on the black, white, and red models.
Pebble’s latest smartwatch forgot it’s hip to be square.
The Pebble Time Round has a circular display that hopes to appeal to traditional watch wearers, and compete round rivals like the Moto 360 and Samsung’s upcoming Gear S2. Its all-metal design is also the thinnest and lightest Pebble has crafted to date.
It’s wise to take that report with a pinch of salt, but it got us thinking; if Apple’s first smartwatch really is a flop, which company can make a wearable worth wearing, and do wearable devices have a future at all?
Join us in this week’s Friday Night Fight between Cult of Androidand Cult of Mac as we battle it out over that very question.
