One of the most annoying things about customizing any of the Pebble watches is finding the perfect strap. I’ve owned different Pebble’s for a few years now and it seems like I can never find a watchband that checks all the right boxes. Usually they’re either too big or too small, they just aren’t the right color, or they lack those nifty quick-release pins that we’ve come to love with the Pebble Time and Time Round watches. Fortunately the guys over at GadgetWraps have you covered with their new line of silicone watchbands for all Pebble models. This is our review on their selection of watchbands available here on the GadgetWraps site. In case you missed it, we also recently reviewed the skins available from GadgetWraps here. It’s definitely worth checking out once you’re all done here.
One of the things we all love about Pebble is the level of customization available. From different watchfaces and applications to custom watch bands, any of the Pebble smartwatches can be customized to fit your own personal style. In case you’ve been living under a rock and you don’t already know about them, GadgetWraps is a company that has really taken that customization to the next level. They offer a custom line of skins, screen protectors and silicone straps made specifically for Pebble watches. Here’s a review the company as well as a few of the skins available from the GadgetWraps website. Be sure to check out the giveaway info at the end of the article. Just a quick note — all of the skins featured (and way more that I couldn’t fit into the post) are available for every generation of Pebble.
I’m new to the Pebble world. I received my Pebble Time Round in rose gold just last week, and I’m hoping to help other new owners through their first steps with their shiny new purchase. I love all things tech, but the farthest I’ve gotten into the smart watch world is a Fitbit Charge, and that doesn’t really count as a smart watch at all. I used my Fitbit faithfully for almost a year, but the boring look and the need to press a button every time I wanted to see the time wore on me after a while.
When I saw that the latest Pebble watches had a very slim profile, a great new color coming out, and it could take the place of my Fitbit by tracking my steps and sleep, I was sold. The last thing I wanted was to look like I was wearing a calculator watch circa 1992. The Time Round seemed like a genuine step toward smart watches that don’t interfere with daily life; they simply enhance it. That’s exactly what I was looking for.
