One of Pebble’s first unique features advertised with the Pebble Time was that it would support third-party bands that brought extra functionality to the watch. A new Kickstarter from Fit Pay Inc. has sprung up that plans on offering a mobile payment solution for Pebble watches with a device called Pagaré. It uses NFC to replicate what we’ve seen in Apple’s Apple Watch and what’s eventually going to come to Samsung’s Gear S2. Read more

Smartwatches are going to be a very popular gift this Christmas. On Christmas morning, millions of people will be finding out that Santa Claus brought them a watch that has serious brainpower. If you’re still needing to gift something or want a smartwatch for yourself, we recommend giving Pebble’s line of smartwatches consideration. Everything from the Pebble Classic to the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round is nicely discounted for the holidays.
Pebble is looking to take its wearable devices to the next level with the release of Pebble Health.
Pebble unveiled its new Timeline software for Pebble Time, Time Steel, and Time Round watches, but left out older watches. However, Pebble said they would bring the new software to older devices eventually, and that day is coming closer and closer.
Pebble today announced some crazy discounts on its Pebble Time smartwatches as well as the Pebble Classic. If you’re looking to pick up one of these smartwatches for a family member of friend this holiday season, you could save up to as much as $70 with Pebble’s new discounts.
In late September, Pebble introduced the world’s thinnest and lightest smartwatch in the Time Round. The company started accepting pre-orders right away and even began selling compatible metal bands just a few weeks ago. Now, after getting everything prepared for a smooth launch, Pebble has scheduled the date for Time Round orders to start shipping and when consumers can walk into select retail stores and leave with a fancy new smartwatch.
Although smartwatches have yet to become mainstream, tech lovers like me feel the need to have one. Over the past year, numerous smartwatches of all different brands hit the market hoping to get slapped on your wrist. But not all of them feature the same functionality. With new manufacturers getting involved in along with those who are already returning with a second generation product, it has become harder than ever to choose the one that best suits your needs best.
Right now, you can purchase extra or replacement bands for your Pebble Time Round directly from its maker. Pebble is selling premium metal bands in link and mesh varieties for its first smartwatch that has a round display. The link metal bands are 20mm and come in silver (seen above) and black, costing $49 each. The slimmer mesh bands, sold for $29 each, are 14mm and come in silver, black, and rose gold.
The estimated shipping time on both bands is 6-8 weeks.
Nuance Communications and Pebble Technologies have announced that, together, they’re bringing Nuance’s voice recognition technology to the Pebble Time, Pebble Time Steel, and Pebble Time Round smartwatches.
This added voice recognition technology will allow Android users to reply to emails and text messages by using their voice with a simple touch of a button.
