Pebble Technologies that had some very great time with its first smartwatch “Pebble” as we know is out back with its successor. The Pebble Smartwatch is one of the most successful wearable in the market at very affordable price of just $149. The new Pebble smartwatch is known as the Pebble Time as it comes with a new Timeline user interface and a color screen, while it still maintains the USP of its predecessor which is its 7 day long battery life.
The new Pebble Time has a new stylish and premium timeline UI, with more better animations and looks more faster and responsive that the original one. However, it is said that the same interface is likely to arrive in the Pebble and the Pebble Steel smartwatch. The major new addition is the inclusion of a microphone that will allow users to leave short voice mails. However, note that this is not a smartwatch replacement. Let’s have a look into the details.

The new Pebble Time is now even lighter and thinner. The body measures 9.5mm which is 20% less compared to the first Pebble. The appearance makes it look like plastic but the bezels are of metal. A slight curved back fits snugly over the wrist offering a more comfortable fit. The screen at the top is made of toughened scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass and you can even save it from water impact, but keep in mind don’t keep it exposed to water for too long and don’t dive.
The new Pebble Time has got different style bands with the standard 22mm size. The standard retails box is said to be coming with a soft silicon band and users can swap it for different choices available.
User interface and apps
The new Pebble Timeline now comes with more than 6500 Pebble apps and watchfaces. The new Timeline interface offers easy navigation between watchfaces and apps where users can click on the top key to go back in time, click the middle key to go to current moment and the bottom key for seeing of future appointments and events. There are plentiful animation supporting this and the UI now runs much faster and smoother than before.

Just like the last time, the Pebble Time is too a Kickstarter funded project where the smartwatch has already received a stunning response in less than 24 hours and has way past its goal.
