I thought they figured out the aesthetics issue already with Steel. The Pebble Steel is reasonably attractive, though I'd rather it was round like my LG R or the Moto 360. The Time isn't as ugly as the original Pebble, but the big plastic bezel is definitely a step back.
I'm still thinking about it. I love the display of my LG-R, but don't like that it's nearly impossible to read in sunlight. One reason I kept telling myself that I didn't want a Pebble Steel was that color faces add a surprising amount to the attractiveness of the watch.
