Pebble explains more :
We’re back! And we’re incredibly excited to announce two new smartwatches–plus, an entirely new, lightweight, hackable, connected device to replace your phone when you’re out running. Why choose between a fitness tracker and a smartwatch when you can have it all?
Our new Pebble(R) smartwatches keep you connected and in control during your busy day: they serve up notifications*, show your schedule, and even let you perform simple tasks with the click of a button. With built-in activity tracking, heart rate monitor*, and our updated suite of Health tools, Pebble is the only thing you’ll ever need on your wrist.
Pebble 2 and Time 2 come standard with multi-day battery life*, water resistance down to 30 meters, and e-paper displays that make them readable indoors and out. Like all our products, Pebble 2 and Time 2 work with both iOS and Android smartphones. Both watches start at unbeatable prices: Pebble 2 at $99; Time 2 at $169.
