pebble

An image of what is likely to be the next-generation Pebble smartwatch has been found on the company’s servers, ahead of its official unveiling on Tuesday.

Though specific details weren’t shared in the leak, it can be gathered the next-generation Pebble has a color screen and larger bezels, along with protruding buttons that were found on the original version.

It was reported last week the new Pebble will feature a slimmer profile, which can’t exactly be gleaned from the leaked image on Monday. Furthermore, the device is said to have a Cortex M4 processor and a 6-axis gyroscope running inside.

Pebble hopes to battle Apple, Google and others by implementing a new type of interaction and a whole new style of hardware and software, Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky said earlier this year.

“You’ll actually interact with the watch in a completely different way than you do today,” Migicovsky said. He wouldn’t specify what this new type of watch metaphor might be other than saying he didn’t believe the app store model is the right approach to smartwatch customization and extensibility.

“We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch,” he added. “It doesn’t look like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone.”

We’ll be looking out for confirmed details on Tuesday. If Monday’s leak does indeed turn true, what do you think of the new Pebble?

      spoken like a true isheep. adds nothing to the discussion here.

      • iBanks

        It adds exactly what I just said. And I’m still patiently awaiting the Apple Watch. Ha!

        “It adds exactly what I just said” ……………..

        Looks like Spidey woke up in the symbiote suit today. Wouldn’t worry about it.

        you are on the wrong site. go home

      • @dongiuj

        Please elaborate.

    pebble you need to speed up to survive. The apple watch is coming and will wipe your sales out. Do everything possible to release the watch asap before the apple storm comes a chasing.

    • iBanks

      Lol. And you’re not even going to be a customer of buying the new Pebble. Interesting.

      • Dhoklastellar Fafda®™

        I happen to own a pebble dude. I know I wont get the updated one if they dont catch up.

      • iBanks

        Didn’t say you did or didn’t own one. I too own one. I clearly said you won’t be buying the new one. And catch up huh? What… If they don’t release before the Apple Watch you won’t get it? I put my money on you not purchasing the new Pebble for the simple fact that the Apple Watch is around the corner. So much for the “iSheep” comment. You’ll surely be getting an Apple Watch and not this new Pebble.

        Tbh the pebble battery life is amazing plus the fact it’s waterproof.

        I mean apple watch isn’t waterproof if anything apple should catch up.

      • iBanks

        And the Pebble doesn’t come close to the display technology and many of the features supported in th apple watch, so therefore more battery life will be used by default on the Apple Watch. As far as waterproof, wouldn’t really care for that myself. I don’t even use my jawbone up in the shower, surely wouldn’t put my watch in it.

      • Buzz { Light:Year; }

        True but I can see my notifications just as fine. Which is what I really use it for don’t get me wrong apple watch will be amazing but if I had to choose if choose pebble simply because of battery life and water proof you know
        But it’s all preference

      • Buzz { Light:Year; }

        Ever thought of people’s jobs like a life guard or something and don’t say they wouldn’t wear a watch. Like I said it all comes to preference not bashing the apple watch it’s an awesome watch Ill be getting it but will only use it for fashion

      • iBanks

        If you haven’t noticed…. That’s Apples goal. To sell it as an fashion item, and not so much as an “smart watch” hence all the fashion publicity, hires, and partnerships.

      • iBanks

        From and Forbes article from 3 days ago… “The Apple Watch is a personal piece of branding that says everything about the wearer. Yes it will perform many of the same functions as the currently available smartwatches and fitness trackers in the $100-$200 price bracket, but in the same way that any Italian sports car can be used to pop down to the 7-11 for some more Irn-Bru to drink, the point of the Apple Watch is not necessarily about function. It’s about fashion.”

  • If it can hold the same amount of battery length the current pebble holds then that will help it against competition. I love my current pebble which holds its charge for a good 5-6 days sometimes more. I don’t want a watch that constantly needs to come off my wrist every other day.

  • Merman123

    Wow that’s one ugly watch. Hopefully there’s something different tomorrow, I don’t think these changes are enough to retain/pull in new customers.

  • Steven Miller

    I’m really interested to see what they actually come up with. The image posted looks like a combination of the original pebble and the steel. I currently own the original pebble and love it. I like what the the apple watch is bringing to the table, however, Battery life and price are both factors for me so i probably won’t be going the apple watch route.

  • Chindavon

    Oh baby! Color!

  • hartefbrown1

    i own both HOT watch and Pebble Steel, they are with white/black, if the new one it with Yellow/Back it is not Color

  • iPodDroid

    More interested in the Pebble than the Apple watch TBH.

  • Utrarunner5

    I like the pebble because it was a Kickstarter project. I really respect those who start there. They seem to care a lot more about their customers. Thats why I will probably get this over the Apple Watch. Since, the price tag will be a lot smaller than the Apple Watch I’m guessing.

  • Freddy Born

    looks like an ulgy “gamer” accessory. yuck.

  • Arkadi

    A lot more interesting, when will pebble fully support unicode ?

  • CS

    Note: this is definitely not going to be exactly what it looks like. I’m sure there is much more detail they have left off as this is simply just a computer-generated image Pebble made possibly for their online store. If you look at their store you can see all of the images are computer generated and don’t show great detail.

  • Patrick

    Pebble is a great watch. I own one and I’m very happy with it. I went ahead and bought an OMATE X and i’m very disappointed, yes it has a nice color touch screen a mic and speaker, but all you really use the smartwatch for it to get notifications. I will consider another pebble for sure. Apple’s watch looks awesome but will cost twice the price of a pebble and battery life will be 1-2 days so no thanks So easy math , Pebble it is.

  • Dante Arellano

    This shitty watch only exist cus this blog continue remind me that exist
