Pebble Turns To Kickstarter For Three New Wearables

Even though it has already released a couple products, Pebble is looking to crowdfund devices once again. It has launched a campaign to fund two new smartwatches as well as another wearable. The main smartwatch, called the Pebble 2, offers sleep, step, and heart rate tracking.

The Pebble 2 uses a black and white display, has a week-long battery life, is water resistant up to 30 meters, and features a microphone.

A more high-end watch, called the Time 2, offers a color ePaper display and a 10-day battery life. Its display is 50% larger than the original Time's and it provides 80% more pixels.

Pebble also has a different kind of wearable that's being funded. Called the Pebble Core, the device is an Android-based cellular-connected clip that can stream music, record voice notes, and track your location, pace, and distance while running.

The Pebble Core works over WiFi or cellular, can provide music via wired or wireless headphones, and will last for up to 5 days if you work out for 45 minutes per day.

Here's the pricing and shipping breakdown:

  • Pebble 2 - $99, September 2016
  • Time 2 - $169, November 2016
  • Pebble Core - $69, January 2017
