Pebble spiced up its Pebble Time Kickstarter project this morning with the announcement of a new all-metal version, called Pebble Time Steel, and what they are calling “Smartstraps.” The campaign for their new smartwatch has already crushed their previous record in just over a week, so don’t be surprised if today’s goodies continues to push the needle towards another record.

Pebble kept to its word this morning with the announcement of a new product, the Pebble Time. As expected, the Pebble Time comes with a full color e-paper display, along with a new interface called Timeline, which is a bit like Google Now in that it puts relevant info at your fingertips. In a somewhat surprising move, Pebble is launching Pebble Time through Kickstarter, just like they did with the original Pebble. Well, almost like the original. This time, Pebble Time is nearly complete as a product, they just need funding, which is their way of seeing just how many to make, I would imagine. (more…)
In 23 hours and change, Pebble is going to announce some sort of new product. At least that’s what their website is telling us with a countdown that started last week. Rumors suggest that it will be the next generation Pebble smartwatch with a bigger, color display and new version of Pebble’s watch operating system. Thanks to an image found on Pebble’s own website servers, we may now know exactly what it looks like. Just look above. (more…)
This morning, Pebble updated its website to include a picture of a blue Pebble watch with a smiley watchface, situated above a countdown that ends next Tuesday. The updated site doesn’t mention what the countdown is for, only that you can sign-up to receive more info if “curious.” Of course, our immediate thought is that they have a new watch to unveil next week, which 9to5Mac has received word on.

Back in December, beta testers for Pebble were treated to Android Wear notifications, but now, the software is exiting beta, ready for everyone’s consumption. In the 2.3.0 Release Notes, Pebble brings Android Wear notifications which requires firmware version 2.9+, while also providing user-defined replies to messages. (more…)
The team over at Pebble has exciting news for Android users, as two big features have been launched inside Version 2.3 of the Pebble Beta app. After updating, Pebble users will be able to see and utilize Android Wear-like notifications, as if you owned a Moto 360 or G Watch R. For example, if you receive a message through Hangouts, a notification will appear on your Pebble, which will allow you to reply to said message via selected emojis.
In addition to enhanced notifications on your Pebble, support for Android devices running 4.0+ has been added for the beta application. Lastly, auto app updates has been built in, allowing your watch to update software while it sits idling on a charger. Clutch. (more…)
While there are probably more Black Friday 2014 deals than anyone outside of a Black Friday blog can keep track of, we will do our best to try and highlight some of the better as they go live over the next 24 hours or so. Oh, and you may be reading this on Thanksgiving, because well, “Black Friday” seems to start earlier and earlier each year as retailers battle for your attention (and dollars). That’s right, the deals have already begun before you even started eating turkey. Nice of all of our retailer friends, right?
OK, so, this post will be updated as we can get to it. Hopefully, you don’t miss out on too much while you enjoy the long holiday weekend. And, hopefully can find some decent deals on electronics you have been keeping an eye on. (more…)
An updated version of the Pebble smartwatch application has hit Google Play, which brings a major feature update for all users. That feature, of course, is full notification support. Much like we saw on previous renditions of Samsung’s watches, only select application notifications were able to be pushed to the device on your wrist. Now, finally, any app can have their notification be pushed, all decided by the wearer and not the manufacturer. (more…)
