Pebble's newest round, thin watch takes the Pebble formula and shrinks it to a stylish design, but gives up battery life and some app support in the process.

Very competitively priced

from Digit
The Pebble Time Round is not for the fashion conscious. It is also not waterproof or resistant, but if you're looking for a simple smartwatch that does the job, and is really light, this is the one to consider... Full review

Excellent build quality and design

from Android Guys
Pebble Time Round is the first round smartwatch from the company, and it certainly does not disappoint. While a few of the software features may be slightly inconsistent (or niche-based, like the voice commands), it is an incredible watch in both form and function... Full review

The best-looking Pebble yet, but at a cost in terms of functionality

from TechRadar
It's lighter and better-looking than any Pebble before, but the battery life and app compatibility mean those in the market for the brand may prefer a Pebble Time Steel... Full review

The notification master

from Mobile Syrup

What holds The Pebble Time Round back is its hefty price tag. Pebble has always marketed itself as the burgeoning smartwatch industry’s most affordable wearable, but at $299.99 CAD, the company’s latest smartwatch is approaching high-end territory. It still undercuts the $379 Moto 360 and $399 Samsung Gear S2, but it may be too much for those looking to dip their feet into the smartwatch genre. Perhaps it’s good, then, that the company still sells its original Pebble, along with the Pebble Time and Time Steel, for significantly less.

Still, despite its hefty pri... Full review

A smartwatch that doesn’t seem like one

from GreenBot

iPhone users can view and dismiss notifications, and trigger voice commands on supported apps. But notifications are non-actionable, which means no deleting e-mails, liking Facebook posts, or replying to WhatsApp messages by voice. An experimental feature allows AT&T users to answer text messages with voice or canned replies, and it worked well in my experience, though there’s no word on when other carriers might be supported.

By comparison, Android users get all the same actions that appear in their phone’s notification tray. So instead of just getting a glance a... Full review

One of the best looking smartwatches of the year

from Android Authority

For its design and the well-performing functions this smartwatch offers, users will look to the Time Round as the watch they want when simplistic elegance is the order of the day, and that is exactly what this device is able to achieve. For most users, being able to see notifications, and in most cases, respond to them is the core of a smartwatch, and Pebble has certainly delivered that.

Where other smartwatches fail is in their feature sets – not because these features aren’t good, but because the design has to suffer to make room for them. The Time Round is the anti... Full review

Company's most attractive smartwatch yet

from PC Magazine
The Pebble Time Round has the potential to be the best smartwatch yet. As far as look and feel, no other smartwatch comes close by my estimation. And if you're set on a round smartwatch, it's better than the Android Wear-based Huawei Watch and Moto 360. But it's tough to recommend over the Pebble Time, which has much longer battery life, access to every app in the Pebble store, and a water-resistant design—all for less money... Full review

Trades battery life for a super-small design

from Cnet
The Pebble Time Round sacrifices function for style. It's why I wouldn't want to buy this watch. If future Pebbles can look this good and either be more affordable or do more, I'd be excited. But this watch feels like it's stepped sideways, rather than forward... Full review

More expensive than it looks or feels

from Wired
The Time Round is more expensive than it looks or feels, which is a shame. But this is the first smartwatch I’ve used in a long time that offers me more peace than anxiety. I don’t worry about figuring it out or making the most of it, or whether I should be doing this thing on my watch or my phone or my laptop. I don’t think about it at all most of the time. I just check the time, and it tells me what I need to know. That’s the job, isn’t it?.. Full review
The Verge

Slim size, but not without compromise

from The Verge
Pebble has been busy this year for a reason: it’s never had stiffer competition for wrist real estate than now, and it’s just a small fish in what’s becoming a larger and larger ocean. The Time Round may just be another option in Pebble’s expanding lineup, but it takes the company forward, in both design and build quality. Pebble has mounting challenges ahead of it, but if the Time Round is an example of where the company is headed, I’m excited to see where it can go. If only the company could do something about that bezel... Full review
