Pebble Time Round: now we need an elegant design for Pebble OS too

Make it yours.

It’s nice to have a round version of the Pebble Time. The first, square version looks to me a little too much like a toy, but this definitely looks different, more serious.

The interface is the problem there. Once you look at it, it seems you’re playing a game. That’s not bad in itself, but it’s a little conflicting. I’d expect a future version with a new, more elegant visual appeareance as well.

The screen size is a little dissapointing too. Pebble Time uses a 1.25 inches (vs 1.37” – 1.56” Moto 360 2 depending of the version, or vs 1.2” Samsung Gear S2). Pebble hasn’t published specs for the new screen size on the Pebble Time Round, but it seems smaller than 1.25”, and there’s another problem: that big bezels. Too thick, with 5 possible designs (with and without numbering).
