Pebble Steel Smart Watch with Metal Case & Gorilla Glass
Upscale Pebble SmartWatch Available Soon
According to ModMYI.com, Pebble will soon release a new upscale Steel line of its popular E-Ink based smart watch. The new Pebble Steel is rumored to be priced about $100 higher than the original, or about $240. It should be available sometime around the end of January.
Some lovers of Pebble’s original smart watch for iPhone and Android would apparently prefer more style and durability on their wrist. Pebble has responded by packaging their existing smart watch technology into a much richer-looking stainless steel casing with a Gorilla Glass face.
The watch will come in at least two colors, stainless steel and matte black (see below).

The Pebble Steel is expected to come with a choice of metal and leather straps and will retain the waterproofing of the plastic model. It may debut as early as next week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
