After waiting close to 6 months, my Pebble time steel has finally arrived!  I’ve gotten myself a silver with leather band variant during the kickstarter campaign back in March. Do note that pebble is also shipping the metal band for all pebble time steel backers later this year.

Let’s unbox it and take a first look!

High Resolution photos incoming !!

Alright, so in the box, there’ll be an new charging cable, which is unfortunate as pebble/ pebble steel owners will not be able to use their old cable to charge their new pebble time. There is also 2 pebble logo stickers, which is cool and some boring documents.

 

First Impression:

The pebble time steel is significantly lighter than it’s predecessor: Pebble Steel. It definitely resemble an Apple Watch. The UI is familiar yet refreshing. It’s is really easy to connect to your phone and it prompted me to update the watch’s software. After that, my apps from my pebble account instantly synced with the pebble, really convenient i must say. The leather band is significantly thicker than the one on the pebble steel and it definitely feels better.20150922_142937

The buttons feels great! It is really tactile and easy to press. And, there is also a microphone on the right side:20150922_14420820150922_144201

The new unlock mechanism is so much better. All you have to do is to slide the metal hole to release the band.

The charging port is shifted from the left side to the back.
