The Pebble Time Round: Pebble’s Latest Smartwatch
In an attempt to reap from the Black Friday effect, which traditionally marks the beginning of the festive season sales upsurge, Pebble Technology Inc., over the weekend, will be releasing their latest wearable product, the Pebble Time Round.
The Canadian company, despite being one of the veterans in the young wearable industry, has had its fair share of ups and downs over the last couple of years, and is hoping to use a series of new releases as a gateway back to the top, where now the likes of Apple and Google sit comfortably.
Pebble’s CEO and founder MR Migicovsky has been up and about preparing the way for the launch of the Time Round, and has been paying visits to different branches of Best Buy, Pebble’s main retail partner in Canada.
While the Time Round has already been made available for purchase in the US, Pebble’s largest customer base, potential customers in Canada may have to wait until the beginning of December to have it in their own stores. While UK might have the Pebble Time Round “later this year”, the rest of the EU retailers will probably have to wait till “early 2016”.
In the meantime, sales for earlier editions of Pebble Time and Pebble Steel smartwatches are ongoing at various Best Buy outlets.
