It’s almost that time everyone. Almost time for the first trade show of the year, which is CES or the Consumer Electronics Show. Which takes place in Las Vegas, NV., January 7th-9th. But it technically kicks off this weekend. So if you’re interested to see what gets announced next week, you’ll want to start paying attention to our feeds on Sunday. As there are a few press conferences Sunday night and all day Monday. Pebble has just told us that we’ll be seeing something special at CES next wek.

We’re not really sure what Pebble has in store for us in Vegas next week. But the general consensus is some short of second-generation hardware. Which is expected, since the Pebble took over CES, pretty much, last year. I’m expecting them to launch the Pebble 2 this year at CES. But, remember that is speculation and nothing is confirmed. Other than the fact that Pebble has something to show us in Vegas.

Pebble is planning to livestream their announcement next week, so we’ll be posting that as soon as we’ve got a link. As I know all of you want to know what Pebble has in store for us. I’m betting on a second Pebble or a fitness tracker, or both? This is the very reason why I decided to wait on picking up a Pebble. Which I almost did for Christmas. Also because I’ve seen so many sales for the Pebble smartwatch lately, as well as them giving 4,000 of them away to education. And right now the Pebble is on a 4-6 week backorder, unless you ordered the black one. Which could lead to the Pebble 2 being announced. Since it looks like they were trying to get rid of the Pebbles they still had in stock.

Pebble’s press conference kicks off on Monday, January 6th at 11am PST, which is 2pm EST. And we’ll be there to see what Pebble has in store for us. Who’s excited?

    Good lord, what a terrible mess of sentence fragments and comma splices.

    Another tech company offering an innovative smartwatch is Smart Devices, which introduced the world’s first tablet with a built-in DLP projector – winning a prestigious 2013 CTIA E-Tech Award; and now its Smart Q Z-watch is gaining notice for its features and design and compares to the Pebble but with better specs and features more on par with Samsung’s high-end Galaxy watch, and nearly half the price. Smart Devices also launches its own App store in January, after accepting hundreds of App developer submissions in November.

    The SmartQ Z-Watch ($155) offers a full color touch-screen display with one of the highest resolution screens of any smart watch on the market, and features a powerful 1Ghz processor, along with twice the battery power of most other models; and also offers both Bluetooth 4.0 with low energy use & WiFi connection…

    The SmartQ Z-Watch works with Android smartphones to handle phone calls and sync and display messages, contacts, and schedule; plus features an MP3 Player & Voice Recorder, a walking/ jogging pedometer and sleep analyzer; and a software update is also expected in this month to work with Apple iOS devices as well –

    One source for the new SmartQ Z-Watch is–Tab l et Sp r i nt– which has complete product details and also adds in a premium earphone set and extra watch band strap as part of an introductory promotion…

    Does the author of this article speak english? This is just a terribly written piece.

    Hmmm, I can’t imagine a second generation Pebble being announced next week. That’s a sure-fire way to really anger the kickstarter backers and customers that have supported the company thus far! Besides, they only just expanded into Amazon and Best Buy.

    Speaking with Engadet last year, Pebble’s CEO said that they deliberately built a lot of sensors and other technologies into the first-gen Pebble in order to future-proof it. He also emphasized that the company would now be focusing on building out its platform / ecosystem. Whilst ripe with potential, the Pebble in its current state is half-baked.

    I’m betting that the announcement will be related to the AppStore that the company has been talking about recently. Revised hardware may be nice, but I would much rather further development on the Pebble software / functionality instead.
