Pebble Time Boasts Color Screen and Week-Long Battery
Pebble today announced the Pebble Time, a new smartwatch that works with Android and iOS smartphones. The Pebble Time jumps from a monochrome display to a color display, but it still delivers seven days of battery life. The e-ink display is always on with no fear of battery drain. In addition to the color screen, the Pebble Time is 20% thinner than previous models, has a built-in microphone for voice dictation, and has a revised user interface. Pebble calls the new user interface Timeline, which can be used to glance at the past, the present, or the future thanks to dedicated buttons for jumping through the Timeline. The device is water resistant, can be used to count steps (with third-party fitness app), and has exchangeable bands. The screen is made from Gorilla Glass and it has a stainless steel bezel. The Pebble Time is being offered in red, black, and white. At the moment, the Pebble Time is a Kickstarter project. Pebble is reserving watches for those who donate to the campaign. The cheapest donation is $159 and the next tier is $179. Pebble has already met its funding goal. The Time is expected to ship in May.
