Pebble Game of Thrones Smartwatch Review: Whether you are a Game of Thrones or GoT fan, or not, the fact is that it is one of the most popular shows ever means that no matter where you go, you'll find other GoT fans and GoT-themed merchandise. And the Pebble Game of Thrones limited edition smartwatch is sure to be a talking point among GoT fans and watchers as well. The Pebble Game of Thrones smartwatch is available at Rs 5,499 and comes in three colour options - Black, Grey and Gold. Here I used the Black colour of the smartwatch as a review unit. But, if one were to ignore the GoT theme, is the Pebble Game of Thrones smartwatch worth the price? Find out in our review.
The smartwatch is undoubtedly going to offer an unmatched experience and this begins with unboxing itself. It comes with Game of Thrones-inspired packaging which not just has a Westeros map but also the coveted Iron Throne that unfolds as soon as you open the box. You also get a themed metallic keychain along with an immersive letter bringing the tale of ice and fire to life.

The smartwatch comes with a 1.43-inch AMOLED display with a peak brightness of 700 nits, sufficient to use even under direct sunlight if the brightness of the display is set to max. While the company has not mentioned anything about the refresh rate, scrolling through notifications and different features was always smooth during three weeks of my usage.
Before I talk about other features of the smartwatch, let me tell you that the leather strap feels really comfortable and I never felt sweat on my wrist even once despite the weather being humid in the month of August. Also, the watch comes with an IP67 rating, so you need not worry about accidental splashes and unexpected rains.
The smartwatch has a functional rotating crown which is not very prone to accidental touches. However, I noticed my watch face being changed quite a few times. The Pebble Game of Thrones smartwatch has some useful features as well - like always-on-display (AoD) and quick shortcuts.
The smartwatch has a 250mAh battery which is sufficient to last only for a day if you are using all the features like Bluetooth calling, always-on-display and others. It comes with a two-pin magnetic charging cable that can charge the smartwatch fully in less than an hour. The Bluetooth calling feature offers good audio quality and is loud enough to listen to conversations even on the streets.
It also has around 100 sports modes and caters to a wide range of fitness activities. It also comes with the integrated health suite, which monitors and tracks your vital health metrics. The health suite includes features like heart rate and SPO2 monitoring to help users track their well-being. While step counter of the smartwatch mostly returned accurate readings, it is always better to refer to medical equipment for precise heart rate and SPO2 readings.
Pebble Game of Thrones Smartwatch Review: Verdict
The Pebble Game of Thrones offers several cool features like an AMOLED display, leather straps, IP67 rating and much more. A better battery could have made things even better. However, the unmatchable Game of Thrones experience at each and every stage easily makes up for it. With all these things, the smartwatch is worth all the money spent on it.
