Recently, Pebble introduced the Pebble Steel, which is a fancier version of the watch that uses a steel case and a leather band. And since the start of the year, the Pebble appstore has been available for iOS and Android. Both are said to contain more than 1,000 apps each with 12,000 registered developers slurping down Red Bull and breakfasting on leftover lo mein noodles.
The Pebble smartwatch offers notifications for email, calls, texts, tweets and Facebook. CEO Eric Migicovsky says he is looking at ways to expand the week long battery life on the watch. So far Pebble has survived, nay, thrived in a market that every tech firm is trying to plant a flag on. We've just heard from Google and Motorola and eventually, Apple will launch the iWatch.
Pebble has been in the black since early last year, which bodes well for a long and healthy life for the company.
