Pebble to Bring "Something Special" to CES This Year
The creators of the popular smart watch, Pebble, which came to fruition as a result of a Kickstarter campaign last year, recently published a press release stating that it will be bringing “something special” to this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, on January 7. The CEO of Pebble, Eric Migicovsky, is scheduled to make the announcement on Monday, January 6, the day before CES gets underway in Las Vegas, Nevada. There will be a keynote that will start at 11:00 AM Pacific time and will be live streamed on the company’s website, which users can access by clicking here.
Although there aren’t any indications as to what may be on its way, recent speculation suggests that Pebble is likely to introduce its second-generation smart watch, which is expected to feature a touchscreen display and be compatible with Pebble’s upcoming App Store when it’s launched later this year.
We’ll have to wait and see what’s to come but it has us and probably many of you excited.

Seriously, the reason I didn't get the pebble was the battery life. $150 for a watch you have to charge every day? It's silly. If they add something like wireless charging, Bluetooth LE, then it could be considered.

I hope not Pebble 2 -- at least not yet. I just bought mine before the new year.

I was going to get mine this year but I will wait now cause I'm really hoping for that Pebble 2 and App Store.

In hoping it'll be just the App Store. Don't wanna be outdated after two weeks.
For the faces just google pebble face generator and there's a great website that you can make your own faces from your own images.

I hope it's not a touch screen. The primary reason I want a smart watch is to control my phone with gloves on a motorcycle. That's what I wanted the Sony Ericsson MBW-150 Music Edition for since 2007. If the screen hadn't faded I'd still be using it today.
