Most people assumed that there would be a Pebble Time Steel, but it came sooner than expected. The new Pebble Time Steel, announced today on Kickstarter, features a larger 10 day battery, steel casing and a screen bonded directly to the top glass. Other than that, it has identical specs to the regular Pebble Time.
Also announced today was Pabble smartstraps. Pebble is giving third parties the opportunity to create watch straps with built-in sensors and other electronics. Heart rate monitors, GPS and extended battery life are all possible with the addition of a smartstrap. Personally, I’m looking forward to a smartstrap with a built-in speaker so that I can start taking calls directly on my phone.
