Pebble announced Pebble Steel. As the name suggests the chassis has been upgraded from plastic to steel. A few notables: The incredibly thick display bezels remain. Pebble decide to adorn the bottom of the front face with its logo, a massive one. The result? A butt-ugly smartwatch. It’s also an ugly watch, period. Here are some tips:
- Make it a square.
- Make it flat.
- Make it thinner.
- Reduce the display bezel. None would be best.
- Get rid of any logos from the front face of the watch.
At least Pebble did one thing right: The e-paper display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
