I love my Pebble. Now, after putting this brushed steel SlickWrap on it, I love it even more. It only took about 10 minutes — including cleaning the gunk off — to install, and it was really easy. And it doesn't seem like an afterthought. The decals are precision cut, fit exactly how they need to fit, and feel like they are going to stay in place.
Read on, Pebblers!
Everything you need to get your new look is included. Just find a well-lit and quiet place to sit down and get started. Use the included cleaning cloth to get the gunk off your Pebble's face and buttons, position the bottom of the body wrap, and the hard part is finished. There's even a set of screen protectors included, which look pretty crystal-clear to my eyes after installing. Not bad for just $8.95.
I wasn't kidding when I said it was easy. With 30 years of playing steel-string guitar and working with hot soldering equipment under my belt, my fingertips are stiff and hard. Sometimes, a task like putting on a screen protector is a bit difficult. But the SlickWrap went on my Pebble easy as pie. Line up the bottom, and you peel away the backing while putting the full-body skin in place. When you've got the bottom started and aligned, put the screen protector on. Then just keep wrapping the skin up towards the top.
Afterwards, just peel off the stickers that cover the buttons and carefully align them where they need to be. When you're finished, your Pebble has a completely new personality.
So far, the SlickWrap seems like it's here to stay. While it's still just a sticker, the adhesive is strong, the vinyl is thick, and I don;t get the feeling that it's going to peel off and look horrible in a week or two. If anything, the buttons will be the part you lose first, and your SlickWrap comes with a full extra set of button covers.
I didn't want to wait for the other color Pebble's to be released, and I think I'm going to wait before I plunk down the cash for a Pebble Steel. This SlickWrap is a prefect way to get a great look on my plain black Pebble. At just $8.95, with a ton of different styles and colors available, I can recommend these to anyone and everyone.
