Pebble 2, Pebble Time 2 & Pebble Core

Gizmodo reports: [edited]

The Pebble 2 is a reinvention of Pebble’s original success. It doesn’t loose the big plastic case, but it does introduce a new black-and-white display now fused with Gorilla Glass instead of plastic, and it’s been made a little more sleek. The big addition is a heart rate sensor, which will take advantage of the fitness software Pebble has been slowly introducing over the past several months.

The Pebble Time 2 is all metal and includes a heart rate sensor. The big upgrade for the Time 2 is the screen, providing a 50 percent larger display. The Time 2 lasts for 10 days on a single charge, and both it and the Pebble 2 remain waterproof up to 30 meters.

The Pebble Core is an internet-connected 'fob' that you attach to your keychain or put in your pocket. Pebble made this for runners and it can work with other smart watches. With 4GB of storage and 3G connectivity, it lets users stream Spotify playlists to their watch, allowing them to leave your phone at home.

It also supports simple actions with Pebble apps, like summoning an Uber, and Pebble thinks developers will find even more ways to tinker with it. The Core reportedly lasts nine hours running Spotify and GPS and can go for days in low-power mode. It charges with any wireless Qi charger.

The Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2 are available on Kickstarter for the early bird special of $100 and $170, respectively. After that, they’ll jump up $30, which will also be their retail price. The Core starts at $70.
