Did you know you could purchase Pebble smartwatches directly from the manufacturer? Probably not, seeing as how they’re everywhere, from Amazon to Best Buy to Target. But this week, you have all the reasons in the world to take your business to Pebble, not third-party retailers.
As part of yet another early Black Friday sale offered by a tech company fearful it may not make many waves come November 27, the Pebble Time Steel is already marked down from a starting price of $250 to $200 and up.
The relatively new rectangular wearable piece is encased in robust stainless steel, and can be paired with leather or metal bands. The former models are obviously the ones costing two Benjamins, while the latter flavors go for $240 a pop after a $60 discount, unfortunately only shipping in 6 to 8 weeks.
If you don’t mind a cheaper-looking plastic chassis, the Pebble Time can be yours at a measly $130, down from the $200 MSRP. This “entry-level” version isn’t available with premium straps, but you can choose between three colors: black, white, and red.
Both the Time and Time Steel feature always-on, color E-paper displays, withstand water immersion up to 30 meters, and last a maximum of ten days on a single battery charge. Alas, the circular, bezelicious Time Round isn’t included in the promo bonanza, going for the usual $250, but in case anyone’s interested, the first ever Pebble watch, now dubbed the Classic, fetches $70 after a cool $30 deduction.
