dbrand’s Pebble Time skins bring a ton of customization options at low prices
Before Android Wear and Apple Watch, Pebble offered a great smartwatch with great battery life and solid functionality. The launch of competing platforms has moved the spotlight off Pebble, but the Palo Alto-based startup showed it could give bigger competitors a run for their money with the Pebble Time.
Launched in February on Kickstarter and set to ship to regular customers later this month, the Pebble Time brings a color e-ink display protected by Gorilla Glass, voice commands support, and more, all in a $200 package.
Our Josh Vergara absolutely loved the Pebble Time in his review, noting its solid build and software improvements. But while the Time comes in three colors, it’s not exactly easy to customize its appearance, or protect it, for the matter.
Enter dbrand, which manufactures vinyl skin and wraps for a variety of devices, from gaming consoles to smartwatches. When it comes to the Pebble Time skins, dbrand prides itself with a couple of unique features that make it stand out from competitors. Namely, unlike other skins for the Pebble Time, dbrand skins include both an outer bezel component and an inner bezel one. You can also customize and protect the smartwatch’s buttons with precisely cut skins.
Ordering just the right combo of colors and textures for your Pebble Time is easy. Just head to the online interface, where you can easily mix and match various textures, including carbon fiber, matte, metallic, leather, true color, and natural wood.
As you can see from these shots, the ability to use different colors for the outer and inner bezels makes it possible to have some striking combinations. All it takes is a few minutes.
The individual skin elements cost $2 for each “face” and $1 for the buttons, with worldwide shipping available for $3 (you can order individual components as well). That’s quite lower than competing products on the market right now. And if you’re looking for a skin for the classic Pebble smartwatch, you can check out the full selection of Pebble skins on dbrand’s website.
