Pebble Core, the 3G and GPS-enabled running buddy created by the Kickstarter-attached smartwatch company of the same name, added a really impressive new feature today. When Core begins shipping in early 2017, backers (and those who end up buying one later on down the road) will be able to tap into the power of Amazon’s Alexa. (more…)
Yesterday, we wrote that Pebble was teasing something new on its website with a countdown, but no one knew exactly what the countdown was counting towards. First thought to possibly be the launch of a new wearable, we now know that Pebble is back on Kickstarter, looking for $1,000,000 in funding to build a trio of new wearable devices — the Pebble 2, Pebble Time 2, and an all-new Pebble Core.

Pebble has a fancy countdown happening on its website, stating that we are all “in for a treat.” The countdown will end tomorrow morning (5/24) at 7am Pacific (10am Eastern). Below the countdown, folks can register to be notified of what’s happening once it takes place. Given this is Pebble, we expect the company to be announcing some sort of new smartwatch device or maybe a fitness wearable, but this is really the first we are hearing about it. (more…)
Evernote announced that they will be ending support for multiple functions yesterday, bringing what is virtually a demise to Skitch for Windows, iOS, and Android, as well as Evernote Clearly and Evernote for Pebble. Officially, Evernote is shutting down support this week, but this does not mean your apps won’t work. Until operating systems update to the point that you can’t use the apps, they should work fine. Just don’t expect updates or any kind of technical support. (more…)
Pebble Time Round, the “world’s lightest and thinnest smartwatch,” arrives at retail stores this Sunday, November 8 for $250. Online orders will also begin shipping, as well as the pre-orders from weeks ago when this latest watch from Pebble was first announced.
As a recap on the Time Round, this is Pebble’s first round watch that still features an e-paper display. It runs Pebble’s watch OS, comes in a variety of colors (with different strap sizes), and is just 7.5mm thin with a weight of 28 grams. It’s easily their classiest looking watch to date. (more…)
This, is the Pebble Time Round. It’s the new round smartwatch from Pebble that starts at $249 and can be reserved today before shipping some time in November.
The new Pebble Time Round (PTR) is like previous Pebble watches in that it has a “beautiful,” always-on e-paper display. It does the whole notification thing, as well, as any smartwatch should. But what makes this new watch somewhat interesting, is the fact that it’s round, incredibly thin at 7.5mm, and still lasts for days on a single charge. The PTR comes in 20mm or 14mm options, which is really just you deciding which band thickness you want. As for colors, you are looking at black, silver, and rose gold (option is exclusive to 14mm). (more…)
The device features a stainless steel body, complete with color e-paper display, able to be purchased in a variety of colors. The one pictured above is the Gold trim and Red leather combo. There are also metal band models, priced at $299. Pebble states on the website that orders should ship in 6 to 8 weeks. (more…)
If you had your sights set on the Pebble Time as your first/next smartwatch but missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, you can now head over to your local Best Buy or hit up Best Buy’s website and buy one. Priced at $199, you get a smartwatch with industry leading battery life, a color e-paper display, compatibility with Android and iOS (limited), and a unique user interface that differs from Android Wear and Apple Watch.
Best Buy has red, white, and black models available online, but you may want to check with your local store for specific color availability. (more…)
