Pebble Introduces The Pebble Time Steel And Smartstraps That Do More Than Simply Hold The Watch To Your Wrist

Pebble has received 12 million in pledges since unveiling its updated smartwatch, but as impressive as that is, it's not what I've come here to tell you. This time around, Pebble isn't waiting half a year to update its creation with a higher-end iteration. One week after kicking off the project, the company has followed up with a second version, the Pebble Time Steel.

Like the Pebble Steel before it, the Pebble Time Steel doesn't change the internals found in its plastic sibling, except for a larger battery, which will apparently provide this model with up to 10 days of use.

Pebble Leaks Image Of New Smartwatch With Color Display One Day Before Announcement

Today we've caught a glimpse of both. The company briefly hosted this image on its servers before taking it back down.

Pebble Smartwatch Gains Support For Android Wear Notifications In Beta Version 2.3

Big tech companies are hesitant to admit when a competing platform offers something that they don't. But the folks at Pebble are more than ready to take advantage of the functionality introduced by Android Wear. The team has pushed out a beta that lets the Pebble not only interact with notifications, but respond to them in a manner akin to an Android Wear watch.

Instead of swiping from the right repetitively to access various options (as you would with Android Wear), Pebble lets you access different options using the three physical buttons available on the side of the watch.

[Deal Alert] Get A Pebble Steel For $149.99 ($50 Off) At Best Buy With Promo Code

For Android users, the Pebble Steel sits in a somewhat precarious position. It has the build quality of a designer watch, but it has the screen of something from what increasingly feels like a bygone era. The end result is something that looks premium and not-so-much at the same time, especially when lined up against its shinier Android Wear competitors on the store shelf.

But the Pebble Steel isn't a bad purchase, and Best Buy's currently willing to make it a better one.

Pebble 2.1 Update Lets You Receive Notifications From Any App—Firmware v2.8 Provides More Languages And Special Characters

The Pebble folks have announced a big update to the smartwatch that many wearers have been waiting a long time for. With version 2.1 of the Android companion app, users can receive notifications from any app they have on their device, rather than a few preset options, without having to turn to a third-party solution. People will have the ability to receive all notifications or select specific apps.

The update is only available to 10% of users today, but it will gradually roll out to more people running Android 4.3 or higher.

Pebble Drops Regular Watch To $99, Lowers Steel To $199, And Releases Background Activity-Tracking Update (Version 2.6)

The Pebble used to be arguably the best smartwatch in the game, and if your primary concern is battery life or you want a ton of apps to play with right now, then it's still your best bet. But the competition has upped its game, and the black and white display of the Pebble Steel looks like a hard sell next to the colorful, circular one of the Moto 360.
