Yes the Pebble Steel passed our aesthetic review, so let’s go to its features, will it hold on? Let’s check it out.
Well for the features, we all know that recently Pebble released the Pebble SDK, letting developers create apps for Pebble, this is great as more apps will be available for Pebble Steel and it is now compatible with all Pebble apps, but one drawback is the number of apps that you can run on Pebble it’s limited, one more thing about Pebble that makes it great is its compatibility with different platforms, its compatible with both iOS5+ and Android 2.3, like other smartphones it has the capability to support notifications and bunch of stuff without the need of getting your phone.
It has a quality make, it has a scratch resistant glass Corning Gorilla, plus 5ATM Waterproof, another feature is the new tri color status led and other features that makes it a true smartwatch.
