dbrand's New Pebble Time Skins Add Some Much-Needed Flair To Your Watch [Sponsored Post]

Before there was Android Wear and the Apple Watch, there was Pebble. Honestly, it kind of started the whole smartwatch trend - sure, there were others before it, but Pebble was the first to really gain what could be described as popularity. In fact, it was the only watch dbrand offered skins for at first. At least until now.

Pebble's newest watch, Pebble Time, ditches the old-school black and white interface for a more modern, always-on, color display. This basically puts it on the same playing field as Android Wear and the Apple Watch. But you know what it has going for it that the others don't?

Bamboo Skins Are Now Available From dbrand, Along With A Site-Wide 25% Off Sale For The Next 24 Hours [Sponsored Post]

In recent years, there's been a interesting marriage between technology and nature - at least where aesthetics are concerned. The popularity of wood being used in device design has skyrocketed with modern handsets, and bamboo has been the most sought-after of the bunch. The unfortunate part is that not every manufacturer has embraced this new design element, and the ones that have are jacking the price up for the use of natural materials.

But now, thanks to dbrand, there's a way to figuratively have your cake and eat it too - with the company's new bamboo skins for essentially all popular devices, you can give your handset the look and feel of bamboo right now.

Hands-On With dbrand Nexus 6 Skins: Like A Tailor-Made Suit For Your Phone

A couple of weeks ago when dbrand offered up all its skins for 25% off, I mentioned how boring most Android phones look these days (save for a few, like the Moto X since it's customizable). As a result, we decided that going hands-on with some dbrand stuff might be pretty fun, and what better phone than the oversized-and-aesthetically-boring Nexus 6 to be the guinea pig? I threw a variety of different combos on this beasty, which includes some super sleek options and also a couple of the worst combos I could possible think of (because why not?).

Regardless of color, one thing always stayed consistent: these skins are quality.

[Deal Alert] All dbrand Skins Are 25% Off For Today Only

One of the lamest things about most modern Android devices is the lack of color options. One person can only choose between "Snow White," "Black Velvet," and "Rose Gold" so many times before wanting to scream, after all.

For situations like that, there's dbrand. They make custom skins for a variety of devices, allowing users to modify their device however they see fit (and change that look on a whim with different skins). Tired of looking at that stark white Note 4? Throw some red leather on it. The blue Nexus 6 not doing it for you anymore? Spice it up with the look of bamboo.

Update: The two sides have agreed to a ceasefire, and the battle is over... for now. Did one participant come out on top? Scroll down to the bottom and let us know what you think.

Some beautiful happenings occur on Twitter with all the surprise and spontaneity of a summer thunderstorm, but fortunately tweets tend to stay around long enough for us to appreciate them after the fact. In this case, the event is still going on. Skin manufacturer dbrand's Twitter account is currently engaged in an epic rap battle with AMD's. We think there is a clear winner here, and no, our bias isn't colored by our appreciation for dbrand's skins.
