Best for Value: The Pebble Steel
One of the most affordable models currently on the market, the Pebble Steel is the follow-up to last year’s crowdfunded Pebble. This time around the E-ink screen (the same as on your kindle) has been given a makeover and has been updated with a high quality 144×168 pixel LED backlit display to make everything that bit clearer.
In terms of features, the Pebble Steel can link to your iOS or Android phone, allowing you to text and call via Bluetooth (if you don’t mind speaking into your wrist, like a spy). Downloadable apps include the usual suspects: games, fitness and tools, with the high-speed interface and slim-line overall design mean this should be your first port of call if you don’t want to go all out with the Apple Watch.
