Pebble 2 hits FCC

Pebble 2 smartwatch spotted online, shipments expected to begin next month

The first units are expected to ship next month, but the updated Pebble smartwatch has just been spotted at FCC and some official pictures appeared online as well.

Although smartwatch maker Pebble had to let go a significant percentage of its workforce, the company is still struggling to survive, and the Pebble 2 wearable is apparently ready to ship. The successor of the original Pebble smartwatch comes as the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign that has ended earlier this year and, while pre-orders can still be placed, early backers will get their new wearables starting next month.

Earlier this week, the Pebble 2 smartwatch has been spotted reaching the FCC website. Unlike its predecessor, the upcoming smartwatch has a microphone, a Gorilla Glass-protected display, and a built-in heart rate monitor. Unfortunately, the screen remains black and white, although it can be easily read in plain sunlight. 

Pebble 2 can be currently pre-ordered for $130 USD. The other Pebble device up for pre-order at this time is the $200 USD Pebble Time 2, but this one is only expected to ship starting in early 2017. We will probably get back to the Pebble 2 next month once it starts shipping, so stay tuned.
