If you never backed the Kickstarter project for Pebble Time, then do not worry, as you still have a chance to own one, although you still have to wait around another month. With Apple Watch now been available to purchase direct from Apple Stores, it makes sense for Best Buy to make the new rival wearable available as well.
Estimated Pebble Time deliveries — Best Buy now allows you to pre-order the Pebble Time and estimates that the device should be delivered by July 20, 2015. However, the retailer has yet to let us know the date from when you will be able to buy this new watch direct from stores.
You might wonder why anyone would choose Pebble’s latest wearable over Apple’s, as pitting them side-by-side shows which of the two is the more fashionable item. However, while the Time may lack a decent display and touchscreen, it more than makes up for it with its impressive battery life, and also being water-resistant to almost 100 feet.
This really does make it a great all-round fitness tracker, as you can keep doing all your watersports, and still be able to track what you do. We know the Apple Watch has a certain about of water-resistance, but highly doubt many of you will want to risk partaking in any watersports with such an expensive item on.
Another added bonus is how the Pebble Time can be paired to Android Wear devices and the Apple Watch, which to us is a huge selling point, and its $200 price tag.
