There are plenty of smartwatches out there and more are poised to hit the market in the future, but the time is now if you’ve been looking to get your hands on Pebble’s latest offering, the Pebble Time, which has officially hit stores and online as of today. The Pebble Time is Pebble’s first device with a full-color display and it also comes in a variety of fun colors of black, white, or red, letting people choose a unit which best suits their personal taste. With Pebble Time’s boasted longevity of 7 days on a single charge, it’ll certainly last longer than any other smartwatch on the market, including those which run Android Wear that users would typically have to charge every night.
One of the more compelling features of the Pebble Time is the ‘Timeline’ interface which takes a users most cared about moments including emails, notifications and calendar events and pins them to the screen as past, present, or future happenings. This unique functionality makes it easy for users to keep up on things which have already happened as well as stay in the know about upcoming events or important meetings and the like, while keeping the actual time the focal point of the watch face. It’s also compatible with both Android and iOS, so no matter which device platform you’ve chosen as your daily driver, Pebble Time doesn’t discriminate and will sync up with both.
The color display is always on and it’s customizable thanks to the collection of thousands of watch faces, and it’s also sporting a water resistance of up to 30 meters so you can take it with you in the shower, or on a swim if you feel so inclined. Like most other smartwatches the Pebble Time also tracks your activities from running to sleeping, and it’s compatible with a collection of different tracking apps from Misfit, Jawbone, and others, and for the music lovers it syncs up with Pandora, iHeart Radio and other music apps to let you control your music from your wrist. There’s also a huge collection of compatible apps, so no matter what it is you’re interested in doing with your smartwatch, Pebble Time likely has you covered.
