The Pebble company has announced two models of smart watch 2 Pebble 2 and Pebble, as well as a completely new product – Pebble Core.
Pebble 2 and Pebble 2 has fully preserved the functionality and capabilities of the previous version, adding new chips. Chief among them was the built-in heart rate sensor, which did not have predecessors.
Pebble 2 offers virtually the same design as the first model. Here the same monochrome screen and good endurance (week). There is the protection against water. With the watch you can dive to a depth of 30 m, although the same applies to the second news. And yet both watches have microphones that allows you to dictate notes or messages.
As for Time 2, they feature a color E Ink screen, which is 53% larger display the model of the previous generation. The device is able to work offline even more than the first new — up to 10 days.

Along with the Pebble 2 and Time 2 was represented by another device called the Core. This pocket gadget for athletes. The gadget is very compact and is actually a miniature Android-thumb without a screen.
Core combines the features of several devices. First, it is the player. It contains 4GB of flash memory, and also knows how to work with Spotify. And without connection to the smartphone. This is possible due to the cellular modem.
Secondly, it is the GPS tracker. That is, the Core is positioned primarily for athletes or cyclists. The battery will last for 5.5 hours with active GPS and listening to music. Core data can be sent to account services, Runkeeper, Strava and Under Armour Record. In the presence of modules Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to connect to smartphones. The Core itself costs $100, but still there are offers for $70-$80.
