TIME
Pebble Time is available in three colors (Black, White, and Red) with matching bands.

Your Pebble Time arrives with a 22mm silicone band, that accommodates wrists with circumferences between 135mm and 205mm. You will not be able to adjust the wrist size, but the watchband can easily be exchanged for any standard 22mm bands from anywhere watches or watch accessories are sold.

Replacing the band
Pebble Time has stainless steel (SUS316) quick-release pins to make swapping bands fast and easy. To remove your watch band, simply slide the quick-release pin towards the center of the band and the pin will collapse and allow you to pull the band free. You will not be able to use the pins with other bands, so please be sure to purchase 22mm collapsible spring pins for your replacement.

Slide your new pins through the band and place one end of the pin into the notch on the body. Collapse the pin again until you feel the watchband snap into place.
 

 


TIME STEEL
Your Pebble Time Steel arrives with a complementary genuine leather strap attached. However, matching metal straps (SUS316) are also available for order through Pebble.com.

  • Black Time Steel comes with a dark grey leather band, and an optional upgrade for a black metal link band.
  • Silver Time Steel comes with a stone leather band, and an optional upgrade for a silver metal link band.
  • ​Gold Time Steel comes with a red leather band, and an optional upgrade for a gold metal link band.
The leather band fits wrists with a circumference between 140mm and 205mm. 
The metal link band fits wrists with a circumference between 135mm and 195mm.

Replacing the band
Time Steel has been designed for a 22mm watchband, and has quick-release pins on both the leather and metal bands to make swapping them fast and easy.


To remove your watch band, simply slide the quick-release pin towards the center of the band and the pin will collapse and allow you to pull the band free. You will not be able to use the pins with other bands, so please be sure to purchase 22mm collapsible spring pins for your replacement.

Slide your new pins through the band and place one end of the pin into the notch on the body. Collapse the pin again until you feel the watchband snap into place.

Adjusting the band
If you need to adjust your metal band, we strongly recommend taking it to a local jeweler or watch shop.

However, if you prefer to adjust the band yourself, you will need a
 small (1.0mm) screwdriver like those used for eyeglasses. The links that can be removed will be marked on the inside by a small arrow, pointing towards the screws.

Unscrew the link, remove the screw, and tug gently to separate the links. Please keep the removed screws in a safe area as you will need them for future adjustments. Remove as many as necessary to fit your wrist (if more than once, please remove the links equally from each side of the clasp for symmetry), and reattach the remainder.

 
 

 TIME ROUND
Your Pebble Time Round arrives with a complementary genuine leather strap attached. However, matching metal straps (SUS316) are also available for order through Pebble.com.
 
Pebble is offering a choice of band sizes, so that you can pick the size that compliments your wrist best: 14mm (smallest setting fits a 140mm wrist) or 20mm (smallest setting fits a 145mm wrist). 

  • The Silver Pebble Time Round smartwatches are available with either a 14mm stone leather band and optional upgrade for a 14mm silver mesh metal band, or a 20mm nubuck brown leather band and optional upgrade for a 20mm silver link band.
  • The Black Pebble Time Round smartwatches are available with either a 14mm red leather band and optional upgrade for a 14mm black mesh metal band, or a 20mm black leather band and optional upgrade for a 20mm black link metal band.
  • The Rose Gold will only be available with a 14mm band width, with a pearl white leather band and optional upgrade for a rose gold mesh band.


Replacing the band 
Time Round has quick-release pins on both the leather and metal bands to make swapping them fast and easy.


To remove your watch band, simply slide the quick-release pin towards the center of the band and the pin will collapse and allow you to pull the band free. You will not be able to use the pins with other bands, so please be sure to purchase the appropriate collapsible spring pins for your replacement (either 14mm or 20mm, depending on your watch).

Slide your new pins through the band and place one end of the pin into the notch on the body. Collapse the pin again until you feel the watchband snap into place.

Adjusting the band
If you need to adjust your metal band, we strongly recommend taking it to a local jeweler or watch shop.
However, if you prefer to make the adjustments yourself, please follow the instructions below.

14mm Mesh Metal Band

To adjust your 14mm mesh band, place your tool (we recommend a flathead screwdriver) into the hole on the clasp as pictured below. Tilt the tool down, away from the clasp, so that it lifts the clasp in the middle. Move the buckle along the band until it is positioned to comfortably fit your wrist. There are small indentations in the band to mark the available positions, which you must use to tighten the buckle again.

Once adjusted, use your tool to apply pressure straight down on the clasp to close it in position. 


 

20mm Link Metal Band
To adjust your 20mm mesh band, you will need a small (1.0mm) screwdriver like those used for eyeglasses. The links that can be removed will be marked on the inside by a small arrow, pointing towards the screws.

Unscrew the link, remove the screw, and tug gently to separate the links. Please keep the removed screws in a safe area as you will need them for future adjustments. Remove as many as necessary to fit your wrist and reattach the remainder.
 If you need to remove more than one link, please remove them equally from each side of the clasp for symmetry.
