The Aria adds gesture control to your Android Wear smartwatch

Truth be told, there were a couple of things manufacturers – and even Android developers themselves – were willing to sacrifice just to have a microcomputer strapped on to your wrist. In situations where you are doing stuff where your hands are busy (don’t get any ideas) like eating, brushing your teeth, playing ping-pong, or anything that will stop you from swiping your smartwatch to see notifications – we were willing to gloss over that. But really, someone should have thought about it, and it’s about time “The Aria” came out – because someone did think about it.

Stop! Pebble Time shipping on May 27

The original Pebble smartwatch was the first smartwatch to be particularly successful on Kickstarter and commercially. After the Pebble landed on the scene, there were hoards of other smartwatches that launched and sold decently. Fans of the Pebble watch looking for the next big thing from the company will already know about the Pebble Time smartwatch.

Some apps in Apple’s App Store rejected for mentioning Pebble support

The Pebble smartwatch and OS may have been around longer than either the Android Wear platform and the Apple Watch, but that doesn't mean it's going to get a "free pass", at least not from Apple. Reports say that some apps are being rejected from publication in the Apple App Store, because they make mention of Pebble Smartwatch support. This doesn't bode well for the rumor that Google plans to make their platform open to iOS as well.

Charge your Pebble smartwatch on the go with NomadKey

If your original Pebble smartwatch is a hotbed of activity, meaning you get notifications every few seconds, or you constantly use it to monitor your workouts and activities, then chances are, you would need to constantly charge your wearable device. But since it has quite a unique charger, as compared to the micro USBs of most smartphones or gadgets, that just means additional baggage for you. But a new portable charger called NomadKey for Pebble is tiny, convenient and just perfect for your quick charging needs.

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. The watch started on Kickstarter years ago and has proven to be one of the most popular wearables out there for Android users.

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.
