Pebble treated its smartwatch duo to a permanent price reduction. The original Pebble is now priced at $99, while the Pebble Steel costs $199 ($219 with metal band).
In addition to the lower pricing, Pebble introduced new firmware for its wearable devices. Version 2.6 brings new functionality that includes compatibility with a number of activity trackers, quick launch shortcuts, and persistent battery icon on top of the usual bug fixes and improvements.
Both Pebble offerings are now even more attractive propositions for the money. The original Pebble in particular is a great entry intro the world of wearable devices with its sub-$100 price tag.
