The Pebble topic recently was not news but have just renewed the entire range of Pebble 2, Pebble Time and Pebble 2 Core.
If you ever thought Pebble, the company behind the first SmartWatch become commercially successful, gives up before companies like Apple, Samsung or Motorola, we sadly mistaken.
It seems that the engineers behind the most profitable project on Kickstarter have worked hard in recent years to a new series of devices that, although inspired by old models on the market are more efficient and useful. In addition, they suddenly became closer to the idea of a traditional fitness tracker.
The first crowdfunding campaign for Pebble came online in 2012 and made history as he surpassed the psychological threshold of $ 10 million, well above the amount that needed its creators. Continuing the tradition, last year also announced on Kickstarter, Pebble Time, a clock similar to Pebble, but one that was built around a color eInk screen. That project pledged 20 million dollars.
The third episode of the story is written Pebble in 2016, also through the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. It aims to bring to market three new dispositive you can see illustrated above and for which the company hopes to raise one million dollars. At this time, already raised $ 5.5 million, but the amount grows at a brisk pace. In addition also has 36 days to completion.
Returning to products proposed Pebble 2 costs $ 99 and is very similar to the first model of the company, except cardiac monitor on the back that works permanently. At 169 dollars you can get your hands on Pebble Time 2, a SmartWatch with a larger screen, color, also with electronic ink. The latter also received a cardiac monitor. Interestingly and Pebble Core, the first giant-screen device with which manages to be a fitness tracker comes with 3G connectivity. The latter is capable of streaming from Spotify and you can sync effortlessly with Runkeeper sessions, Strava and Under Armour Record.
