That represents a $50 drop in the prices for each watch, and makes the watches more competitive with other budget smartwatches (and much cheaper than an entry-level Apple Watch).
Pebble will also refund the price difference to anyone that’s purchased a Pebble Time or Time Round watch since January 21st. Just check out the official blog post for details about how to request a “price adjustment.”
The company says the Time Round is also now available at retail stores in the EU and UK for the first time.
One watch that’s not getting a price cut is the Pebble Time Steel, which continues to sell for $250.
Pebble’s watches are designed to pair with an iPhone or Android device to display notifications and run third-party apps on your wrist. Unlike many modern smartwatches, Pebble’s devices have always-on, sunlight readable displays and long battery life (up to 7 days for the Time and up to 2 days for the Time Round).
On the other hand, they display fewer colors than models like the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear watch series, or most Android Wear devices and don’t integrate as tightly with your smartphone’s operating system.
