Pebble has promised us big things for 2015, and our wait for those could be over sooner than anticipated. The company today erected a countdown on its website that ends on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 a.m. PT.
Following the launch of its well-received ZenWatch late last year, Asus has been promising us another fancy new smartwatch with incredible battery life. But unfortunately for Android Wear fans, the company will be snubbing Google’s platform in favor of its own.
Smartwatches are becoming increasingly popular, and there’s good reason for that; having timely information on your wrist and being able to perform simple tasks without pulling out your smartphone can be incredibly useful.
If you haven’t already invested in one, why not try to win one of the best available in the Choose Your Own Android Smartwatch giveaway. But don’t wait around, because this giveaway is closing today!
HTC’s first smartwatch, developed in conjunction with Under Armour, will ship with a shoe sensor and offer up to three days of battery life in between charges, according to one leak. The Taiwanese company is also expected to use its own software as opposed to adopting Android Wear.
Less than 18 months after it raised a record-breaking $10.3 million on Kickstarter, Pebble has now sold more than 1 million smartwatches.
It’s hoping to continue that success with new devices and new software in 2015, which promise to deliver a unique experience that you won’t get from the competition.
