Pebble began shipping the successor to its wildly popular smartwatch, Pebble Steel ($249), this week and I made a video of the out-of-box experience. Pebble Steel follows one of the most successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns of 2012 which saw the original Pebble E-Paper watch raise over $10 million, when it was only seeking $100,000.
In this video I unbox the Pebble Steel and take a look at the leather and metal bands (it includes both), pair it to my iPhone 5s and take a brief look at the Pebble 2.0 app (free, App Store) which was launched on Monday with a new appstore of its own. ZDNet's Matthew Miller posted a gallery and first look at Pebble 2.0 last week.
