The Pebble smartwatch has an ePaper display, support for Android and iOS notifications, and a third-party app store. But if you’ve been unimpressed with the color options available so far, Pebble’s now offering three bright new colors.
The new “Fresh” green, “Hot” pink and “Fly” blue smartwatches are limited edition models which are available exclusively from the Pebble store. They sell for the same $150 price as the original Pebble smartwatch (which is still available in black, grey, white, orange, or red).
Pebble may not offer some of the fancy new features available from Samsung’s Tizen-based watches or new smartwatches running Google’s Android Wear software. There’s no baked-in support for voice search or commands, for instance, and you can’t install apps simply by installing an app on your Android phone.
On the other hand, you don’t have to press a button to turn on the display. Pebble watches use low-power
E InkePaper displays which are always visible and sunlight-viewable. The watch also gets from 5-7 days of battery life, vibrating alarms, and support for over a thousand third-party apps including watch faces.
