Got my Pebble Time Round (PTR) a couple of days ago, and it's awesome. Was originally planning on the Pebble Time Steel (PTS) instead, but they were out of them. Since I was really on the fence between the Steel and the Round, I went ahead and picked up the Round.

+Jackiebot devore also got a PTR, though she got the Silver 14mm variant.
In the time that I have been playing with it I have discovered some awesome uses already. Being able to talk directly to my watch for things like scheduling quick reminders, sending quick messages to Jackie, etc. are all awesome.

The sleep tracking is phenomenal when using Sleep as Android. It's the weekend, so I have not yet experienced the "gentle wakeup" where it will vibrate before the audio alarm goes off, but I will be testing that out tomorrow.

My main worries about the PTR versus the PTS were battery life and water proofing. The PTR is water resistant, but I can't wear in the shower or while swimming, and the battery life is 1-2 days instead of 7-10 days.

Neither of these actual turn out to be that big of a deal. They would have been niceties and nothing more. In exchange, I get a watch that charges to full in 15-30 minutes and has such a low profile that I can comfortably wear it all the time.

I honestly think I would have had issues with the PTS being as large as it is and I'm glad that the decision between the two was effectively taken away from me.

While it is lacking in some apps, all of the apps that it does have are designed with the latest version of the SDK. No wading through out of date apps written for the original Pebble. This is a distinct bonus and should not be underestimated.

TL;DR: The Pebble Time Round is fantastic.
