The Pebble Steel offers a much more premium design than the original Pebble, and features everything we love about the original like a 5 to 7 days of battery life, an epaper display, waterproof sealing and more, though it features a machined steel face instead of the plastic face on the original Pebble. Overall, Pebble says the Steel is thinner than the first model, and also includes Corning Gorilla Glass on the face for strength. In addition, the company added an RGB LED on the lower left-hand corner that shows the current status of the watch while you’re charging it.
