Pebble is updating its sleekest smartwatch, the Time Round, with two new designs that will be available in gold and silver on Kickstarter.

Unfortunately, these “Kickstarter Edition” designs do not include any new hardware features, such as heart rate monitoring or a higher-resolution display. But they certainly look nice, and they may help Pebble carry the momentum for its third Kickstarter project into its final two weeks.

Pebble tells us the new watches will each sell for $199 and will “start shipping in September.”

The company has a history of introducing new products mid-way through its Kickstarter campaigns, as it did last year when it announced the Time Steel.
