Pebble unveils two new smartwatches and a wearable not meant for your wrist

Smartwatches
[MUSIC] It's 2016. Smart watches are in a strange place. It's a crowded market. So what does a company like Pebble do in smart watches? Maybe find a way off your wrist. Pebble's got a couple of brand new smart watch concepts that are really nice, that are coming this year, but there's also a design for an object that's not a smart watch at all. [MUSIC] We've got a bunch of new watches as well as a completely new type of wearable Pebble Core. Pebble Core is, in some ways, it's a computer on your key chain. [MUSIC] We built this specifically for runners. That's the primary use You've got Extreme Spotify, it tracks your run using GPS, and you can program the button to call an emergency Uber or send a text with your current location. That's the primary use of it. But it also pairs with a Pebble if you want it to. Exactly. If you have a Pebble it's even better. You can control your music using the Pebble, you can see your distance Your speed, your pace, and all the apps on Pebble that use internet can be accessed through the core. There are two new Pebble watches. The quality is nice. So Pebble 2, the upgrade from the original Pebble that we launched three years ago. [MUSIC] So these now have heart rate monitors on them, and these track your activity all day long? Yep. So they track your heart rate on ten minute intervals throughout the day. They also work in continuous mode when you go for a run, or when you go for a bike ride, or you're hiking. [MUSIC] Time two features a much larger screen, it now takes up almost the entire front face of the watch. It's built [UNKNOWN] the same size as the original pebble time. It's crafted from stainless steel, with a new optical heart rate monitor on the back. Even though it has the new screen, and the new heart rate monitor, the battery life is still up to ten days on this one. I wanna ask you about Smartstraps. All of these can work with Smartstraps. We heard about Smartstraps last year. We haven't seen a lot of Smartstraps yet. They're just coming out. They're arriving? So Smartstraps was a concept when we announced it last year. They're just coming out. The first Smartstraps are hitting the market. There's a payment Smartstrap that's gonna be available in about a month or two. It's called Pagare. You just swipe to pay? It lets you pay with your Pebble. There's a GPS Smartstrap that launched. Couple weeks ago, there's an extended battery strap. Yeah, it's coming along. Is there another area beyond watches and the core that you'd think you wanna start branching into? I see a future where at some point you're gonna have multiple wearbles that all talk to each other that connect to the Internet and help you just live a little bit more of a good life.
