There’s no doubt that the Pebble Watch is one of the most popular smartwatches on the market, despite other manufacturers launching way more advanced models. In the end, its the simplicity that made it a great success! Still, it’s been almost a year since we last heard from the company, so we were starting to question when they are going to release a new model.
Start the countdown!
Apparently, they were aware of this too and worked hard over the last months in order to reveal something new next week! Yes, a new smartwatch will be released.
Pebble’s homepage currently displays a countdown timer, showing how much time is left until Tuesday, when a new Pebble Watch should be presented. Of course, that’s why we’d like to see, but we don’t exclude the possibility of seeing ‘only’ a new software update.
According to 9to5Mac, we could actually see a new wearable in the end, featuring a thinner design, with a wider display. Also, it should incorporate a microphone, which could be just the beginning for a very interesting new series of apps. Developers, keep an eye on this!
Bigger and improved display: checked
The new Pebble Watch will also come with a color e-ink display, a feature which we’re really curious to see. Yes, no touchscreen yet, but let’s look at the bright side: the battery life will still be incredible, lasting between 5 and 7 days.
And speaking about software updates, it will also come with a brand new version of its operating system, way more capable in terms of dealing with notifications than the previous one.
Pebble didn’t revealed anything regarding the price, but it shouldn’t be very expensive. After all, it’s one of the most accessible smartwatches, but we’ll find out this on Tuesday.
Anybody else excited about the new Pebble Watch?
