Pebble was arguably the first company to do the smartwatch the right way with the original Pebble smartwatch. It started out as a Kickstarter campaign that exploded into something much bigger than that. People loved what the Pebble smartwatch was capable of, it made them feel as if the future was finally here and they wanted to be a part of that. This appeal caused tons of people to get involved with the Kickstarter and reserve a Pebble smartwatch.
People's love for the futuristic yet simplistic feel of the Pebble smartwatch continued on with the Pebble Steel and then the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel. But now it looks like Pebble has something new in store for their fans, something that they aren't quite ready to talk about just yet. On Twitter today, Pebble tweeted the following, "Tick, tock, tick, tock. Today we see a countdown clock. What's it for? Time to start guessing…" and included a link to the Pebble website where there is most certainly a mysterious countdown timer now located at the very top. The countdown timer on Pebble's website will come to an end on September 23, so we should find out what the deal is at that point in time. As for now though, there is absolutely no information available on what the meaning of this new countdown timer is. Although, the last time that Pebble put a countdown timer on their website like this it ended up being the announcement of the Pebble Time, which was by no means a small announcement for the smartwatch company.
Despite there being no official information or leaks about what Pebble is going to announce on the 23rd, there is definitely some speculation going around the web. Probably the biggest of these rumors is that Pebble will announce some entirely new hardware, which is pretty unlikely. Then there is the rumor of new straps or smart straps, not completely out of the realm of possibility. Last but not least there is that Pebble could be introducing some new software. This could either entail the original Pebble and Pebble Steel getting the Timeline update or the Pebble Time and Time Steel getting a substantial new software update. Whatever the case may be it's sure to be exciting for Pebble fans.
