We first saw Pebble Steel at CES last month, and we immediately fell in love with the hardware imrpovements over the original Pebble. We were a bit surprised, however, when CEO Eric Migicovsky told us it would sell for $100 more than the original, or $250.
Inside, they’re practically the same, save for the 8MB storage in Pebble Steel vs 4MB in the original. It has Gorilla Glass 2 covering the display, a machine-cut, marine grade stainless steel chassis, and a choice of two finish styles – brushed or PVD coated. It also ships with two premium watch straps: a genuine leather and matching steel band.
