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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
