Our third and best Kickstarter yet!

We’re back! And we’re incredibly excited to announce two new smartwatches–plus, an entirely new, lightweight, hackable, connected device to replace your phone when you’re out running.

Pebble 2 and Time 2: two new smartwatches with activity tracking

Why choose between a fitness tracker and a smartwatch when you can have it all?

Our new Pebble(R) smartwatches keep you connected and in control during your busy day: they serve up notifications*, show your schedule, and even let you perform simple tasks with the click of a button.

With built-in activity tracking, heart rate monitor*, and our updated suite of Health tools, Pebble is the only thing you’ll ever need on your wrist.

Pebble 2 and Time 2 come standard with multi-day battery life*, water resistance down to 30 meters, and e-paper displays that make them readable indoors and out. Like all our products, Pebble 2 and Time 2 work with both iOS and Android smartphones.

I backed the original pebble, and the pebble time, and am without a doubt certain they also will have a hit with the pebble 2s. I am not sure I want to upgrade my pebble time though, but for anybody considering their first smartwatch, or just upgrading (hello 1week+ battery life!), this is a great opportunity!!

Forgetting about customs & vat fees + USD15 shipping. Not sure about warranty also.
I dont know much about Kickstarter but I thought it was originally meant for companies/individuals with ideas/designs who couldn't afford the start up or manufacturing process.
Why if Pebble are so successful they are still using Kickstarter . How does it work when you back it?

From my experience with KickStarter, customs has been fine but agree there is a high P&P cost.

Warranty We stand firmly behind our products. Each Pebble product … Warranty We stand firmly behind our products. Each Pebble product includes with a 30 day (after you receive it) money back guarantee and minimum 1 year limited warranty. For more information, please see pebble.com/legal/warranty.

Yes, the original idea was to help small start-up get a foot in the market against the large multi-nationals, providing funding for RnD, Marketing and Production but in recent times it has become a means to 'pre-order' an item.

The price quoted in the OP includes shipping (cost including shipping is $114 for the early bird deal on the pebble 2).
Pebble time 2 is £122 plus tax and delivery so not such a bargain. Hopefully pebble time will drop in price now
The Pebble 2 is £78.98, that includes shipping and makes it a great price. I agree that the Pebble Time 2 isn't such a great price though, but it's still a saving for quite a while probably.

The last two times I ordered the Pebble and Pebble Time, there was no customs added. It's a valid concern though - not sure if they ship from within EU to avoid VAT?
The current pebble steel is more expensive currently than this upgrade will be though so does that not make it a good deal?
I'm waiting. This isn't actually much of an improvement over the older models I don't think.

That depends on what you're after!

They have a bunch of different ranges now:
Pebble - B/W with plastic straps. Cheapest of the line
Pebble Time - e-ink colour display with plastic straps
Pebble Steel / Pebble Time Steel - as above, but with "classic steel straps"
Pebble Round - Smaller watch with colour display

I am sure down the line, they'll also release a Pebble Time 2 Steel, that'll cost even more.

Personally I have the Pebble Time, and bought my own steel strap for £10 on Amazon, and it looks/feels very solid.

I agree, unless you're interested in the heart rate monitor, I am not convinced it's worth upgrading from current gen.
Cold, cos you better wait till it hits UK and buy it.
I got my Pebble classic direct from the US and had to pay duties, so I will wait.
