Pebble shares new, lower smartwatch prices – and they’re retroactive

Today’s wearable market is a pretty darn competitive one, and it’s not surprising to see manufacturers get very aggressive with smartwatch pricing. That means the availability of lots of sales looking to capture consumer attention – but for as much as we love getting a good price, constantly chasing the latest sale can be tiring. Thankfully, Pebble’s ready to throw us a bone, today announcing some low prices that aren’t just some temporary promotion, but represent new and improved value for both the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round going forward – and back.

Those two Pebble Time smartwatches each are getting permanent $50 price cuts – bringing things down to just about $150 for the Pebble Time, or $200 for the Pebble Time Round.

In addition to those discounts, Pebble is going back and readjusting pricing for European and UK shoppers across its whole lineup, with the aim of bringing things more in line with US prices – and that should mean lower figures wherever you look.

All this sounds pretty great – but maybe the best part is what Pebble’s doing to help make these pricing changes a little more palatable to someone who just placed their Pebble order – and now is feeling like they paid too much. For orders placed back as far as January 21, Pebble’s willing to retroactively adjust your bill to reflect these new prices.
