Pebble gets new limited edition Fresh, Hot and Fly colors for the Spy Kids in your life

The Pebble smartwatch line is everything I’d expect in a smartwatch; smart, stylish and ultramodern at the same time. The US$249 Pebble Steel get you into the James Bond all-metallic frame of mind as the smartwatch is loaded with features galore as per my review in US$249 Pebble Steel rocks James Bond Playboy joie de vivre on your Wrist. However, she dresses down really well, with the option to be sporty with a flair for colour.

Enter the Pebble Steel. Mind. Blow. Totally Blown by its awesome Playboy design and Executive finish. I like the futuristic look; not so cool on nerdy or pointless interfaces encased in cheap plastic that can only be worn at a ComiCon Convention. You feel me, dear Reader!? It’s gotta fit my style man, swag with my flow and play nice with my alligator boots and by Blue Suede Lea...
