Early next week, we may get to see the next-generation Pebble smartwatch. Well, something new from Pebble is expected, at least, according to the company's official site.
Pebble, which revolutionised the smartwatch market, has something new to show on February 24. As usual, Pebble has not revealed anything so far, but 9to5Mac reports that Pebble may unveil a refreshed version of its original smartwatch.
In addition to a slimmer design, the new intelligent watch might be a slightly wider, e-ink display. Apparently, the watch won't get a touch screen display.
What's more, the new watch could include a microphone, along with Nuance voice recognition software. The device will run a new version of the Pebble watch operating system (OS), which has been "redesigned from the ground-up to be dramatically different by the team behind webOS", notes 9to5Mac.
Furthermore, the report claims that the new hardware will be powered by a Cortex M4 processor and feature a 6-axis gyroscope. It may cost around the same price as the Pebble Steel.
Pebble has made its name in the smartwatch market. The start-up company recently announced that it sold over 1 million smartwatches. In September 2014, Pebble reduced the price of its basic watch from $150 (Rs. 9,450) to $99 (Rs. 6,300)
It will be interesting to see what Pebble does to claw back market share, and regain the wow-factor with its upcoming smartwatch.
