Pebble thinks Apple, Samsung over complicate smartwatches

Pebble has set the stage for the smartwatch industry. The Pebble team has put into action ideas of a smartwatch that (admit it or not) Apple presented with an iPod Nano worn as a watch. Other manufacturers soon followed even supported by Google with the Android Wear. And then Apple officially entered the scene, only to leave the fan boys anticipating for a few long months. After a long time of waiting, the Cupertino company is finally releasing the actual Apple Watch on April 24 with a premium price tag.

Pebble embraces the future with Time Steel, Smartstraps

Pebble is obviously on a roll. After surprising the smartwatch world by announcing the colored display Pebble Time, which, by the way, now stands at $12 million when it was only looking for $500,000, it is now announcing not one but two "forward looking" glad tidings to its fans. The smartwatch pioneer and Kickstarter darling is revealing its concept for what it call Smartstraps. But end users and owners will probably be more excited for the other news: the stainless steel clad Pebble Time Steel.

Pebble Time smartwatch has a color screen

One of the first popular and successful smartwatches out there is the Pebble.

Pebble smartwatch with color display surfaces in leak

Rumor has it a Pebble smartwatch with a color display is inbound, and following nicely along with such speculation is a new leaked image showing what is probably the official update (it has since been pulled, but the image survives). In the leak we see a Pebble wearable with a yellow display, and though the shot is front-facing, preventing us from seeing it all, the wearable's overall design has been updated. Whether it is the real deal is yet to be seen, but we won't have to wait long to find out, with Pebble's event coming up shortly.

Pebble website teases of a surprise in 4 days

When you go to the Pebble website, you'll be forgiven for thinking a bomb will go off in 4 days and x number of hours, seconds, milliseconds, etc. Of course it's not a literal bomb (we hope not) but the timer seems to be signaling a major surprise from the smartwatch maker. But as to what this surprise will be is still up for a lot of speculation, from a colored display wearable/new hardware or it may be a new software or maybe even both.

Pebble’s Android Wear compatibility now on full version

If you have a Pebble device but you're suffering from Android Wear envy, you need not "suffer" anymore. The latest firmware update of the wearable brings the compatibility with Android Wear from beta testing to full public release through version 2.3.0 of the Pebble Android app (compatible if your paired Android device is running on 4.0 or higher). You get functionalities that some of their smartwatches don't even have, but now the Pebble devices will be sporting.

3D Robotics’ Tower app opened to developers
