Pebble and Pebble Steel now being sold in the United Kingdom



Yesterday we learned that folks in the US would be able to buy the Pebble and Pebble Steel at considerably lower prices, and now a whole new crop of folks are set to get in on the fun. The smart watches have made their way to the United Kingdom in official capacity, with retailer Firebox and carrier O2 looking to carry the device starting this month.

The device had found its way into the hands (or onto the wrists) of UK enthusiasts by way of expensive importing services, but with the device being stocked at retail folks in that part of the world needn’t overspend. The Pebble and Pebble steel will don price tags of £100 and £180 respectively which seems to match up with the recent price drops we’ve seen here in the United States.

In case you’re not aware, the differences between the Pebble and Pebble Steel are purely cosmetic, with the Steel version obviously bringing a more premium stainless steel material for the watch band as opposed to plastic for the regular model. The devices should be on store shelves as early as this afternoon in the aforementioned retailers’ storefronts so be sure to stop in and see about picking one up.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Is this watch even relevent now given the last few weeks?

    1. Yes. I am super pumped about android wear, but none of the devices out yet come close to the battery life and build (for Steel version) of Pebble. Not to mention cross platform support, different screen tech, etc. These things are important to some people.

      I think Pebble still has a place in the market, at least for a little while.

    2. Even more relevant. Even in the UK it’s sometimes sunny outside and most people find charging a watch daily a bit tiresome.

      Not to mention all that tapping and swiping your watch… what’s that all about?

      I think Pebble will experience a surge in demand as they benefit from the free marketing generated by Apple and Moto.

  2. When I can get the pebble steel for AU$150 I’ll buy one.

  3. I love my pebble steel! I always get complemented on how nice it looks. The battery life is awesome. I can go about a good, solid week before I need to charge it. Until Android wear matures a bit, this is still my go-to device!
