Pebble has been around the smartwatch game for a while now, and in 2014 we saw the company release the Pebble Steel, a more premium version of its original smartwatch. Now Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky has teased what his firm has planned for the new year.
Migicovsky has revealed in an interview with The Verge that Pebble has new products planned for 2015, including both hardware and software. The CEO wouldn’t drop many details, but he did tease that the new software will be rather different from Android Wear and the Apple Watch. “We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch. It doesn’t looks like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone,” Migicovsky said.
The Pebble CEO also recapped a bit of what his company did in 2014. In addition to shipping its one millionth smartwatch, which it apparently did on December 31, Pebble also crew its employee base from around 30 to more than 100 and also hired some of the designers that worked on LG’s flavor of webOS to help build Pebble’s new software.
Thanks to factors like its price and battery life, the Pebble smartwatch has been able to gain a bit of traction with consumers, at least compared to the rest of the smartwatch market. And because its been around for a while and is one of the more widely-known smartwatch makers, it’ll be interesting to see what Pebble has planned for 2015.
