Pebble Time Round gallery

Round smartwatches may not be new, but Pebble believes it has something different to offer in the shape of the Pebble Time Round. The company’s first wearable with a circular display, it promises the same cross-platform iOS and Android support for notifications, media control, and more, as its square-screen siblings.

Pebble has had to make a couple of compromises to achieve the 7.5mm thickness, most conspicuously in battery life. Where a regular Pebble lasts anything between 7 and 10 days, Pebble Time Round will go two full days on a charge.

The company’s hope is that fashionistas who might have been turned off by its chunky, squared-off watches may think again if they see something smaller and svelter.
