Consistently improving the Pebble experience over time is what makes us tick. Our unique approach to technology comes to life with every new feature, update, and delighted user. Driven by the pursuit of awesome, we work 24-7 to keep the Pebble community happy, healthy, and growing. While others have entered the field since we pioneered the modern smartwatch on Kickstarter, it’s still Pebble that remains the “Best Smartwatch Overall.”

Today, we’re celebrating the success of Pebble Health and the Time-series watches it works with. New prices in USD for Pebble Time ($149.99) and Pebble Time Round ($199.99)—combined with improved European and UK prices for our entire lineup—make joining the Pebble community or upgrading to the latest models easier than ever.
To Your Health
Well loved and widely acclaimed, Pebble Health is the latest super power to land on users’ wrists. Since launching in December, nearly everyone who can use our seamless step and sleep tracking has installed it and enjoys it regularly. Over 90% of Time-series watches in the wild have activated Pebble health, and about two-thirds use it at least weekly.

The roadmap for Pebble Health only gets rosier. Future updates will include insights for running activities and a dedicated Health section in the Pebble smartphone app, featuring your activity history. We want as many people as possible living more actively and sleeping better with Pebble Health. Making the Time-series watches with Pebble Health more affordable is a big step in that direction.
Hooray, UK & Woo-Hoo, EU!
With your support—from our original Kickstarter campaign and beyond—Pebble watches have always sold and shipped worldwide. Over time, we’ve refined the buying experience for those overseas:
- Partnering with retailers around the world to expand where Pebble can be bought in-store.
- Expanding language support to make Pebble more fluent in your local tongue.
- Speeding European deliveries with a dedicated distribution center.
- Introducing prices for the EU and UK to include VAT and importation fees up front.
Our friends in the EU and UK will notice the biggest pricing improvements. Based on your desire to see all Pebble watches align more closely with our US pricing, we worked hard to make it happen. The new prices reflect what you can expect to pay online or in-store.

New features like Pebble Health are examples of our commitment to the products and users who make Pebble special. The care we extend to building our community is why it’s so strong. To this day, the classic watches brought to life by our first Kickstarter backers get regular updates. Many of these originals are still charged weekly and worn daily, three years later.
Your stories and feedback is why we believe Pebble is the smartest choice to make in wearables. Whether you’re focused on living healthier, smarter, or more creatively with Pebble’s technology, apps, and experiences, we love hearing from you. Share what you love about your Pebble on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or wherever you like to post.
