Pebble's new smartwatch leaks revealing color screen and smaller buttons
An image found on Pebble's servers might reveal the new smartwatch that the company is expected to unveil tomorrow. With the countdown timer on its website telling us to expect an announcement at 10am EST Tuesday, the leaked image shows off a watch with a colorful new display and a thinner design. While the timepiece appears to have a larger bezel, the buttons are smaller (is that trade off acceptable to you?).

Inside the new Pebble Watch is supposedly a Cortex M4 processor and a 6-axis gyroscope. Reportedly, the new watch offers no improvement to the battery life of the current watch. Pebble is also expected to introduce a new OS tomorrow featuring a notifications timeline and improved animations. The team responsible for it includes developers who worked on webOS.

With smartphone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Samsung, Huawei, Asus, Apple and others raising the stakes in the smartwatch business, Pebble cannot afford to stand still. Unfortunately for the company, it doesn't have a smartphone division generating funds it can spend on smartwatch development. As a result, Pebble needs to be proactive rather than reactive.

In less than 24 hours, we should know all of the details about Pebble's updated hardware and software. Be sure to check in tomorrow to learn all about it.
