Pebble Smartwatch Design

The first thing that you will observe about the Pebble Smartwatch is that how simple it is. It does not contain any buttons or curves; it is just simple as it could be. It is just like a simple watch with the dimensions 50 x 32 x 11mm.  This simple design also distinguishes it from other Smartphones which are loaded with designs and curves.

The outer chassis, screen as well as the buttons of Pebble Smartwatch are made of plastic. You might think that the device is fragile, but it is not so. Pebble Smartwatch is really strong as well as water resistance. The device could work perfectly up to 160 meters underwater. This simply means that you need not to worry about it while you are showering or going for a swim. The watch also works absolutely fine between -10 degree Celsius to 60 degree Celsius.  The middle portion of the watch is assisted by the rubber strap which is bump as well as scratch resistant.  The strap is not so thin and is 22mm in diameter.
