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.

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 firmware update: more languages, more notifications

While other newer smartwatches have been coming out with more advanced features, some people still prefer the "classic" wearable design and functionality of a Pebble.
