Introduction

Pebble produces smartwatches that work with both iOS and Android smartphones. Their e-ink screens may not be the most beautiful around, but the tradeoff is significantly longer battery life than other smartwatches. The Pebble started as a Kickstarter project in 2012 and took off immediately, making more than ten times its initial goal.

In 2014 Pebble released a second model, the Pebble Steel.

Both Pebble models have similar specs and features. No matter which one you choose, you’ll get all of your notifications on your wrist, control of your music, custom watch faces, control of your music and more.

Update: In February 2015, Pebble launched a Kickstarter for its new watch, Pebble Time. This thread has been updated to include details on the new smartwatch.

New Timeline Interface Helps You Accomplish More Throughout The Day Building a modern timepiece requires focus on software as much as hardware. Pebble Time introduces a new version of Pebble operating system (OS) that organizes relevant information like notifications, weather, news, travel, and reminders chronologically. With one click you can see what's coming up next, such as a reminder to pick up your kids or when a movie starts. Pebble Time also helps when you need to catch up on things that happened in the past. You can scroll back to see an email you missed, your step count for the day, or the score from the game last night. Now, instead of opening an app just to see the weather, or to check the market, you can reliably get the details you need at a glance
