Pebble Releases New Health Wellness Platform, Activity Tracking Algorithms, & Happiness App As Third Kickstarter Captures Over $10.6M

Pebble 2

This week, tech startup Pebble released its new health wellness platform. This launch comes after the company successfully secured over $10.6 million during its third Kickstarter initiative.

Pebble 1Last month, Pebble took to the crowdfunding giant to raise funds for not one but three new wearable tech devices, which offers new ways for users to enjoy the company’s famous technology.

  • Pebble 2 ($109): Offers up an upgraded version of Pebble that includes a sleep tracker and an uncompromising heart rate monitor. 
  • Time 2 ($179): Described as a premium heart rate enabled stainless steel smartwatch with an updated color display.
  • Pebble Core ($79): For runners, it is a flippable fitness device that lets users leave their phones at home. For hackers, it is a keychain company that becomes a “magic button for anything” (i.e. call uber, monitor pets, stream data from car ODB port). It is known as ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight, and ultra-affordable. 

The three devices’ features include:

  • Pebble 3Water resistant for 30 meters
  • Compatible with iOS and Android
  • Offers always-on display that’s readable indoors and out
  • Great battery life: Up to a week on Pebble 2, up to 10 days on Time 2
  • Music control
  • Over 13,000 apps and watchfaces available 

The Pebble team shared in a recent update:

“Today we’re introducing our vision for a suite of health services to help you develop and maintain healthy habits. No matter where you’re at in your fitness journey, we believe we can all stand to be a little healthier and happier–whether that’s by coping with stress, staying active, getting the right vitamins and nutrients, or checking in on your mood.”

Pebble then unveiled details about its published activity tracking algorithms:

Pebble 1“Published algorithms are the missing piece in making wearables useful to developers and relevant to healthcare researchers, but no wearable device maker has opened the black box–until now. Providing greater visibility into how these algorithms work will allow others to expand upon our offerings, validate our output, and recommend improvements–making for better products and stronger collaboration all around.”

Pebble went on to revealed details about its new Happiness app, which is described as a new experimental smartphone software that “checks in” on the user to see how they are doing throughout the day. The company stated that  during this one-week program, users can give input on other factors in their environment to get feedback on how those factors correlate to fluctuating moods.

Meanwhile, Pebble’s campaign is set to close at the end of June.
