If you were looking to pick up a Pebble, now is the time to do so, as both the first-generation and the Pebble Steel smartwatches are back in stock. Pebble announced that new orders will be shipping out the next business day, and that both leather as well as metal bands will be available for the Pebble Steel. The Pebble Steel will set you back $249, while the first-gen Pebble is available for $150.

Currently, only the matte black and the standard stainless steel variants are available for purchase, but the leather bands should also be in stock soon. In addition to the smartwatches, you can also pick up spare cables directly from Pebble.

The Pebble Steel received a firmware update last week that improves Bluetooth connectivity and the ability to clear notifications in addition to caller ID and battery monitoring fixes.

You can sync notifications from your device through the dedicated Pebble app, available on most mobile platforms. The app includes Pebble's appstore, a storefront that allows you to download custom apps and watchfaces for the smartwatch.

Pebble Steel is back in stock


I don't care what an iWatch has to offer, but I have to at least wait for the LG and Motorola offerings before I give up my Kickstarter Pebble for a Steel...

Sorry, I wouldn't pay 150 bucks for a pebble let alone 250. You could buy a sony smartwatch with water resistance and a color screen for less than that. Then theres the Moto 360 due july-ish and LG G watch not long after that I would imagine.

I paid a small premium on eBay for a Pebble Steel. No regrets because I had no idea how long I would need to wait. So far I am really enjoying it with my blackberry and talk2watch.

It is nice looking but I would much rather have a touch screen rather than little buttons. It's cool they are having success though. It will be interesting to see if Android Wear becomes more popular or not. I guess if AW does become a big thing, Pebble could go that rout in the future too.

I really want to see what apple has coming out. Too bad they are not pioneers in this field but playing catch up to all these companies that have these smart watches out.
