The original Pebble on the left, and the Pebble Steel on the right.
There aren’t many options for smartwatches available locally, but the e-ink based Pebble might get its premium edition on more wrists in Australia if retailer Dick Smith has its way.
The news comes by way of the retailer, which started selling the original Pebble smart watch much to the surprise of customers and journalists alike, providing the first edition in stores for $179, the same version of the watch that so many crowd funded on Kickstarter in 2012.
June is the expected time for Dick Smith to get the Pebble Steel, though pricing isn’t yet known. Currently, anyone — Australians included — can order the Pebble Steel online for $249 USD, so here’s hoping Dick Smith doesn’t raise the price too much when it arrives locally.
