Pebble Steel has been incredibly popular since we launched it at CES in January, with demand far exceeding our expectations. Our premium smartwatch takes everything our users love about the original Pebble—simplicity, ease of use, weeklong battery life, water resistant design, rich notifications, the Pebble appstore, and regular updates—and wraps it up in a sleek new stainless steel and Corning Gorilla Glass body.
Last year, Best Buy became our very first retail partner—the first shop to sell the original Pebble in stores and online. We’re excited to team up with Best Buy once more to make Pebble Steel available for $229 in two finishes: Brushed Stainless and Black Matte—both with a black leather strap. Matching Brushed Stainless and Black Matte Pebble Steel watchbands will be available later on as a separate accessory. In addition, we’re introducing a third color for the original Pebble at Best Buy, with Arctic White joining Jet Black and Cherry Red for just $149.
“Pebble’s first smartwatch, which was launched exclusively at Best Buy, made a big splash with consumers last year. This is technology that people want to test and try before buying, so we’re happy to partner with Pebble again and bring the same exclusive opportunity to our customers for Pebble Steel” says Carly Charlson, spokesperson for Best Buy.
While we’ll continue to sell all Pebble products directly from getpebble.com, our retail partnership with Best Buy allows us to get even more Pebbles on wrists and lets potential customers experience #TinyMomentsOfAwesome in person.
