Almost three years after Pebble started selling its original Kickstarter-funded smartwatch, Pebble is back to the arena with Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2. This time Pebble has integrated a refreshing fitness features to its newbies.

Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2

Both Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2 monitor heart-rate, comes with fitness tracking ability, and have in-built microphones. Moreover, the devices are water resistant up to 3 meters. The new Pebble 2 is thinner and lighter than its predecessor Pebble. It comes with black-and-white display with Cornilla Glass protection.

Pebble Time 2 is made of steel and has a noticeably smaller bezel than the previous watch. The display thus has 50% more viewing area. Other features to look for in Pebble will be its scratch-resistant glass and new heart rate sensors. As usual, battery life is commendable in both the devices. The new Pebble 2 has a battery life estimate of a week, while the Pebble Time 2 should last around 10 days.
