The new Pebble Time smartwatch comes with color e-paper display
It was about two years ago in 2012 when the first smartwatch by Pebble was launched that took the world with surprise. Well, the innovative team is back with their third-generation smartwatch that comes with a new color e-paper display and microphone for responding to notifications. Called Pebble Time, the smartwatch features a slimmer body and is the first to include a color e-paper screen. Easy to read and always-on, perfect for displaying incoming notifications and your favorite watchface, the color e-paper screen of the Pebble Time is the most impressive feature of the smartwatch. Looks like Pebble are betting on this feature to compete with the like of Apple watch and other smartwatch manufacturers.
At just 9.5mm, Pebble Time is 20% thinner than the original Pebble and its lens is crafted from scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass with a bezel made of stainless steel. The color e-paper display up to 7 days of battery life which is way too much as compared to LCD or OLED displays. The Pebble Time smartwatch is water-resistant, customizable and fully compatible with all 6,500+ existing Pebble apps and watchfaces.
Available in white, black and red color options, the latest Pebble smartwatch was on Kickstarter where it was fully funded within two hours.
