Production on Pebble Time Steel begins this week


Production on the Pebble Time Steel started this week, according to an update posted on Pebble’s Kickstarter page. Early backers of the Steel can now expect to receive their smartwatch later this month, says the company.

Pebble goes on to note that those who backed the company’s Kickstarter campaign early will receive both steel and leather bands with their watch. Due to a limit in supply, however, later backers will have to wait to receive their steel band, which will ship separately and at a later date. Unfortunately, those that decide to purchase a Pebble Time Steel at retail will have to purchase the steel band separately, should they decide that they want it.

Previously, both Pebble and Best Buy opened up pre-orders for the regular Pebble Time, allowing those that did not take part in the record-breaking Kickstarter campaign to order the watch. Like the Steel, the non-Kickstarter version of the Pebble Time is expected to start shipping later this month.
