Lately, when it comes to smartwatches, the thin fashion design is what’s trending. So, as I am a tech enthusiast who also happens to be a keen researcher and purchaser of tech gadgets, I was immediately interested in this latest trend in the tech world.
Curious to find out which definitely is the thinnest smartwatch, I set out to search the internet and find out. My internet research was, however, not as easy as I thought it would be.
Almost three hours of research later, though, I am happy to report that I was finally able to confirm that the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch is really the thinnest smartwatch currently on the market.
When searching for a thin smartwatch, two features are important to consider before getting into its features. Firstly, think about thickness, and secondly, the watch’s weight. The smartwatch’s thickness should be between 10-11mm or less, while the total weight should not be more than 80 grams.
At a glance, the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch is undoubtedly the thinnest currently on the market. With a thickness of 7.5mm and a weight of just 28 grams, the Pebble Time Round 14 Smart Watch is so thin that it can be considered Ultra-thin, and not simply the thinnest.
When something technological is described as thin, it is often defined as “relatively small in extent from one surface to the opposite, usually in the smallest solid dimension”. However, when it is “ultra” thin, then it means it should be considered to be “on the far side of, or beyond” thin-as is the case of the Pebble Time Round 14 Smart Watch- it is so thin that it could be said to be beyond thin!
Aside from its thickness and weight, the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch has been declared by Amazon.com “The world’s lightest and thinnest smartwatch.”
As you can understand, Amazon putting the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch on record as the “world’s thinnest smartwatch” needed to be confirmed.
Below, I take a closer look at, review, and discuss the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch as to thickness, weight as well as some of its outstanding features. What then follows, is what my investigation uncovered.

As you might already know, a smartwatch is a wearable electronic device that generally provides notifications and alerts, tracks fitness and health, and provides access to a variety of applications or apps. In terms of features, smart watches typically have a screen, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a GPS, and an app store.]
So light and thin you might forget you are wearing one, at only 7.5mm thick and weighing 28 grams, the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch also comes with the following features.
Time Display: This product has a big round white and grey face with a digital dial display for the hour and minute hands. The digital display does not, however, show digital seconds hand dials, or numbers.
Sleep Monitor: FYI, a sleep monitor is a feature that is designed to monitor the quality of the Pebble smartwatch wearer’s sleep. It can be used by the wearer to determine whether they are getting a good amount of sleep and/or if they need to make changes to their sleeping habits. The Pebble comes with a Pebble Health feature, a built-in activity and sleep tracker that tracks, records, and makes available daily reports as well as provides weekly insights of your sleep patterns.
Calendaring: When it comes to tech, calendaring is the process of organizing events that are to be held at a specific time or dates regularly. It is the practice of planning a sequence of events, such as business meetings, social gatherings, religious services, appointments, and other significant personal or business events. Included among the Pebble’s features are timeline calendar alerts for all those not to be missed appointments and events.
Text Messaging: If you thought you could only digitally communicate with short text messages on your smartphone or laptop, then the Pebble will pleasantly surprise you. It can also be used for text messaging purposes. With the Pebble, you can now send messages, email, or that last-minute “happy birthday” message.
Alarm Clock: Alarm clocks are typically used to wake up a person at a specified time. For your convenience, the Pebble also comes equipped with an alarm that sends a sound to alert you to wake up or of an impending event. The alarm can either be audible or silent.
Splash resistance: With the Pebble smartwatch, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to take it off when showering or swimming. Water resistant, it has you more than covered.
Notifications: In case you have back-to-back meetings, the Pebble comes with a notification feature that sends a notification to alert you of an event. In addition to alerting you on your smartwatch, the notification can also be sent to any of your other Android and iPhone devices.
Yes, to top it all, the Pebble is compatible with Android and iPhone devices.
However, should you be on the market for the thinnest smartwatch, but the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch not be to your liking or just what you are looking for, you will be happy to know that there are almost as thin alternatives for your consideration.
Of the alternative smart watches I came across, TWO others that are among the thinnest-at below 10mm-are, in order of thinness, the…..
Polar Ignite 2
At 8,5mm thin, and a weight of 35 grams, this smartwatch is also among the thinnest smartwatches in the world.
Like the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch, it too comes with notifications, text messaging, as well as a fitness, activity, heart rate, and sleep tracker, all of which are GPS connected.
Add to all this phone compatibility, and you have a real winner on your wrist.
SKMEI Smart Watch
This unisex smartwatch is thin but not as thin as the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch or Polar Ignite 2.
At 9.8mm thin, it is however, similar to the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch in being also a waterproof fitness activity tracker with similar features (e.g. heart rate sleep monitor, notifications, and calendaring).
An investigation and examination of the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch leaves you more than convinced it is certainly the thinnest smartwatch.
Coming with Amazon.com’s support as the “world’s lightest and thinnest smartwatch”, and at a thinness of 7.5mm and a weight of 28 grams, this smartwatch is undoubtedly the thinnest.
Without a doubt, the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch is so thin, that it can in fact be considered ultra-thin, and not just the thinnest. Despite this, however, it has not compromised essential features for thinness-it comes with them all.
The only other smartwatches that come close to the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch’s thinness status, are the Polar Ignite 2 and SKMEI smartwatches. But even then, they are still thicker by more than one millimeter!
And where can you buy these thin fashion design smartwatches?
Well, like most tech gadgets these days, you can find the Pebble Time Round 14mm Smart Watch at Amazon.com.
