Kickstarter success story Pebble announced a brand new version of its popular smartwatch at CES, the Pebble Steel. The new model is made from forged and CNC-machined stainless steel in a brushed or matte black finish and comes with a metallic band and a black leather strap. The screen is covered with a strong layer of Gorilla Glass, protecting it from scratches. The Pebble Steel has the same black & white e-paper screen, the same 5 atm water resistance, and the same handy shake wrist, turn on backlight feature as the original. The company recently announced its own App Store, located within the Pebble Android and iOS apps. New apps include Yelp, Pandora, Foursquare, and ESPN. Pebble Steel will cost $250 and will ship later this month!
