Pebble updates its smartwatch lineup


Pebble, the pioneer of smartwatches has released a new crowdfunding campaign for its new Pebble 2, Time 2 and Core devices.

Pebble 2 is a refresh of the original Pebble. It has the black and white e-paper display and awesome battery life from its predecessor but adds more intelligent fitness and sleep tracking.

The Pebble Time 2 gets a bit bigger update as the color e-paper display is much larger than in the previous model making the device look much more modern than the predecessor and its huge bezels.

The both models are water resistant to 30 meters of submersion. The Pebble 2 has a 7 day battery life and the Time 2 lifts it up to 10 days.

The Pebble Core is a new iPod Shuffle. It runs Android, doesn’t have a display and can stream music from Spotify. The Core for hackers is a minicomputer that can be programmed to do stuff with its own SDK. Both Core models are independent and don’t need a phone to work.

Retail prices are $99 for the Core, $129 for Pebble 2 and $199 for the Time 2. There are still a lot of early bird prices available even though the campaign has gathered its goal of one million dollars over five times already while writing this.
