This time last week, Pebble announced Pebble Time, its brand new smartwatch for 2015. And if you’ve already backed that thinking it would keep you going until a more extravagant successor to the Pebble Steel came along, you’re going to be pretty disappointed with today’s Pebble news.

Just one week after the company announced Pebble Time and raked in more than $12 million (and counting) in funding, it today revealed Pebble Time Steel, a high-end version of the device that’s made of metal, and boasts better battery life.

Pebble’s brand new smartwatch is here, and it’s a huge improvement over its immensely popular predecessors. Pebble Time boasts a color display and a slimmer design, the same great battery life we’ve come to expect from Pebble watches, and a brand new operating system.

Pebble has finally begun teasing its next smartwatch ahead of an official unveiling next year, and according to Pebble evangelist Myriam Joire, it’s going to deliver “more everything.” It won’t only be prettier than its predecessors, but thinner, too — and it’ll offer a whole new level of customization.


Pressy, the innovative Android add-on that adds a physical button to your headphone jack, has finally begun shipping to Kickstarter backers. The news comes more than 8 months after Pressy secured almost $700,000 — ten times its original $40,000 goal — in funding from supporters.


When you buy a smartphone case, it’s almost always for protection. You don’t want your $600 device to get scratched in your bag, and you certainly don’t want it to shatter when you drop it. But don’t you think cases could be about more than that?

London-based Cliq Cases certainly does, and that’s why their new smartphone case features customizable shortcut keys that you can use to launch your camera, control media playback, toggle your flashlight, and more.
