Make Your Own Pebble Steel Smartwatch Charging Cable

Salam Alikum,



I have recently got myself a PebbleSteel smartwatch.  I am really loving the watch as it looks very elegant and allows me to keep me informed with notifications about emails, calls and others without having to keep looking at my phone all the time. I preferred it to other smart-watches like Motorola 360 and Samsung gear since this one comes with an e-paper display that results in a longer battery life which can reach 7 days between charges.

The watch came with a USB cable that attaches it self to the watch by a magnet while charging, Unfortunately I lost this cable few days ago and my watch went of battery charge today. Looking for some cable replacement online I have found its price to be in the range between 10$-15$ !! and it will take a few days to arrive. So, I started to look for solutions about how to make own Pebble Steel Smart-watch charging cable.


Here is how I converted an old micro USB cable into a pebble watch charger, it may be useful for you in case of emergencies but
USE AT YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY, NO GUARANTEES PROVIDED.


Step 1: Cut the USB cable end connector to expose the wires as shown




The USB cable has four wires (Red, Green, White, Black) as shown:


Step 2: We need two wires to charge the pebble watch: Red wire (+5V), and Black wire (GND).
Connect those wires to the Pebble charging connection points and use stick to fix it.


IMPORTANT: The polarity of the wires should be that the red wire (+5V) is to the bottom of the pebble, while the black wire (GND) is to the top (towards the backlight button).







I hope it can help you for charging your pebble in case of emergency, but be careful while doing it and use at your own responsibility.


Those links helped me in finding out the solution:

  2. This worked on my first gen Pebble too. I used a mini USB cable I didn't need which only had a red and white cable inside. I put the white where the black goes. The wire didn't want to stay in place with tape so I used some rolled up paper and a rubber band to apply pressure to it.

  10. The lifecycle of a new gadget is relatively predictable: When it’s brand new, only early adopters are interested. Once the technology matures, everybody buys one. But Smartwatch still haven’t caught on with most people—and that’s because no one has made a smartwatch that’s worth its cost.

  11. In order to connect an Android phone to a standard USB device, you need to use a micro USB to USB Type A Female convertor, but this should also be an OTG Cable . A mini USB OTG cable is available in the market for affordable price.

  12. Nice post about pebble watches The design and build quality was the primary cause of concern in the first model. The plastic material of the pebble watch made it look like a cheap product that is meant for small kids. It received huge criticism in the design category. Hence, Pebble decided to focus greatly on the design aspects. Truth to be told, they again failed to impress the users in delivering a quality looking product. Appearances are extremely important if you are investing hundreds of dollars in a smart watch.

  25. Every one of the replies on this page is bullshit, just free marketing for the braindead who like to hijack informative topics for the public.
    How about you fcking retards actually use your brain instead of embarrassing your parents on producing such slime and worthlessness.
    The USB didn't work for me but doesn't mean it won't for others.
    I actually got no power at all and I ensured that the positive was atthe lower end of the watch as you described.
    Thank you for your efforts OP.
