Despite some initial doubts voiced at the end of last week, which included the theory that Apple may have been purposely stalling on giving the app the green light to be sold through its App Store – due to the implied competition the device poses to Apple Watch, the official mobile app for Pebble Time is now available for download.
Let’s face it. You would probably struggle to find a small start-up that can garner the amount of consumer interest in a smartwatch that Pebble Technology has managed, over the last few hours.
In celebration of those beach-filled summer afternoons that are now upon us, Pebble has announced a small refresh to its popular smartwatch product line, tonight, to include three, vibrant new colours.
Those patiently awaiting the release and launch of the Pebble App Store, will be pleased to learn that the “public” release of the software is all but set. The company has this morning seeded Pebble SDK 2.0-RC, which marks the “Release Candidate” – (and thus, final version of the software) – to developers, before it hits the wires for everyone.
Wrapping up its live announcement at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show just over an hour ago, Pebble Technology has tonight announced the newest addition to the Pebble smartwatch family. Pebble Steel is described as the “gold-standard” in smartwatch offerings available for both iOS and Android, and brings with it a number of improvements over the original Pebble smartwatch.
CES is largely considered one of the biggest technology expos on the planet, so it only seems right that the makers of the world’s most-successful “smartwatch” should also be in attendance.
