The smartwatch company, Pebble, is at it again. Last month, Pebble announced its next line of products on Kickstarter. This time, Pebble created a product specifically with fitness in mind.

These are the top 6 features of the Pebble 2 a great smartphone accessory.

  • 7 Day Battery Life

  • Color E-Ink Display

  • Heart Rate Sensor

This is the first Pebble product to ship with a heart rate sensor. This addition alone shows Pebble’s dedication to making a product with fitness in mind.

The Pebble 2 is available for pre-order. When it hits shelves, the price will be $129 USD. With all the features in consideration this makes the Pebble 2 relatively inexpensive compared to other products with similar functionality.
