For my more interesting device of Pebble in today’s presentation has been Core, a system of activities very simple in appearance but packed with features: GPS, 3G, Android. But as we, watches company wants to focus its catalogue into the world of sport and health, so update the range with two watches who have with heart rate sensor.
We speak of the 2 pebble and Pebble Time 2, that they will wipe off the map to the original models. What you see, two new models to continue war, and it seemed that Android Wear and Apple Watch went them to move in a more complicated market than it seems.
Two watches share much functionality, but emphasizes especially the incorporation of a heart rate sensor that is registering our constants every ten minutes in a mode called standby, or in our sporting activities, that will be kept constantly registering.
We do not forget that watches are equipped with microphone to leave messages voice, or for applications that want it to take advantage of, and that wireless connectivity is through Bluetooth you. We are going with the differences:
Pebble 2 is the more standard – they call it casual – in design, very similar to the clock that were already on the market: sports, water resistant, and finished in plastic. It will be available in five colors: Black, White, Aqua, Flame and Lime.
His display of e-ink is monochrome, with a size of 1.26 inches. This type of technology makes forget be loading non-stop the smart watch, and in this case they boast seven days of autonomy.
The new Time 2 price is $ 129, in September when appears on the market, but it is possible to acquire it by $99 If you add to the Kickstarter initiative.
Pebble Time 2
The framework is quite smaller in this new Pebble 2 Time with respect to the model of last year. WINS in design, also in resistance: both models protect your screen with Gorilla Glass
Essentially an updated version of the Time of last year, with the new sensor. Here we gain in presence thanks to the stainless steel, but still retains a series silicone strap (you can buy other models: skin and metal).
It is also more capable with respect to the screen, as Here the electronic ink drawn in colors. We like to know that they have gotten more resolution – 80% more – in that panel 1.5 inch, as many as 200 x 228 pixels. The autonomy of this model will be ten days of use.
This update preserves the price of Time last year model, i.e., $199. If you do not wait to September and add you to the kickstarter, sale for $169. In any case the available colors are black, gold and silver.
