      I'm happy to get in the Pebble bandwagon this time around. Can't wait to have the Pebble Time 2 in my wrist!

      Q: Via which company do you ship to Spain? Normal "Correos" is not too reliable for letting recipientes know when things arriba (for things that don't fit in the mailbox)

      Cheers!

      Dear people at Pebble: This is such a great project! Thanks for bringing this great watch to Kickstarter again. Just one quick question though: is it (even remotely) possible to add an extra, more feminine, colour to the Time 2 lineup? E.g. rose gold? Thanks! Keep up the great work!

      Guys, this looks Awesome! my first investment ever on Kickstarter.
      Quick question - can you provide more specs/information about the 'Heart Rate Monitor'? how accurate is it? is it equivalent to the one where you have that elastic meter on your chest while running? (like the one's Pular use). thanks :)

      I love pebbles. I've ordered a time 2, that i find fantastic. I have only a request, otherwise i know you haven't project in this way now, but i'd like an app for Windows 10 mobile. I know the share of Windows 10 mobile is very low against iOS and android, but i think (and many other) it can be a fantastic opportunity for us to use your smartwatch, that i find the best around.

      I am a collector of watches. I loved wearing different styles and colours daily. Since I got my Pebble 2 years ago, I haven't worn any of my other watches. Not once!! I just backed Pebble on Kickstarter for a Pebble Time 2. I'm so stoked, I can't wait to get it!! My old Pebble is still going strong and my partner will get an awesome hand me down. I sense another Pebble freak is inevitable once she starts wearing it�

    12. Brandon Atkinson on May 25, 2016

      This is awesome. I was considering getting a time steel to go with my time and red original and then this came out.

    13. Ville Witt on May 25, 2016

      As a soldier, I want maximum battery life, robustness, and a high contrast display. Yet weight, smart-phone dependency*, and signatures of various sources should be reduced. Hereby I mean visual-, IR, and radio signature, e.g. drab black or MultiCam. Obviously uplink/downlink requires net access).

      With this project appearing, it seems like the best trade-off for soldiers is: Pebble 2(Contrast, drab black, weight) with the Pebble Core for down- and uplink.

      Better trade-offs would be to have the big screen with higher DPI, with the highest possible contrast, and a Pebble Core-like device which had a days worth of battery during HEAVY usage of GPS, data, and some calling. Preferably be powered by changeable batteries, such as AA (NATO standard), AAA, or an equivalent of the GoPro internal batteries, for quick battery swap in the field. If possible live swapping to keep the system from booting.

      Is the Pebble Core able to input audio through the jack socket such that two-way phone calls can be made with a cabled, noise-reducing headset?

      Is there a proper random generator in the Pebble Core for use in encryption?

      *: Smartphones are the opposite of robust: battery abusive, dust- and water allergies, and pressure sensitive.

      I'm going to great lengths so ship this to Indonesia! (the corrupt customs officers keep stealing stuff they like, first hand experience)

      Worst Update ever!
      Looks like having a party in a company who fundraised money to sell a new pebble after firing 50% of there staff...
      Very disappointed so far

    19. Oscar García Chilín on May 25, 2016

      Will The pebble core be able to connect to bluetooth headphones?, I asume yes, let us know!

    20. Iordanis Karsavidis on May 25, 2016

      Time 2 for the win! Thank you! This is going to be a fun journey!

      Does it say "Kickstarter Edition" on the back?

    23. Jesse Ritter on May 24, 2016

      I just hope its engraved! I backed the pebble time 2. I also hope its scratch proof. I am really glad that the bezels are smaller.

      if the pebble core is 3g enabled, and connects to bluetooth to the pebble/time 2, then can you use the combination for a basic functionality phone with an address book/dialler in the watch?

      Andrew Ferguson on May 24, 2016

      actually hyped right now.... i backed and am holding high expectations for November!! :) 4th Pebble.

      Also your better than Apple. I sold my Pebble Time for an Apple Watch, but i returned the Apple Watch for a Time Steel! :)
      Actually loyal and Pebble is actually better..

      If you wear two watches in one day, say pebble2 to workout in the morning and round in the afternoon will the app combine your steps, sleep etc. ?

      Can you add a reward for 2*Time2 + 2*Core please? Also my +1 for adding NFC! Awesome idea, but I'm guessing it would be really hard to make it fit in.

      Michael Malczewski on May 24, 2016

      Is NFC going to a be stretch goal? Please say yes; because that's the only thing missing :)

      Do you have any shots of the underside of the head? I have metal allergies and can basically only wear titanium. I'm assuming that I will need to put a leather strap under this watch head and not worry about the heart monitor.

      The new Pebble 2 comes with a new display which promises more contrast than older versions.

      Since I have problems in reading the Time Steel display when backlight does not kick in, does the new display deliver a better reading experience? Does the Time2 also have better contrast when compared to the old time?

    33. Kenneth Soares on May 24, 2016

      Will smart straps made for pebble time still work with pebble time 2?

      @Johannes Papadimitriaou: at the end of the campaign description they state that EU backers will pay taxes via them before shipping, which I think means they will drop ship to EU and then ship the packages from within EU, as they did last time

      Is new Pebble Health including swim tracking?
      If yes, Can it track stroke type?
      (Stroke type is lacked in swim.com app on pebble
      It would appreciated if new Pebble Health included)

      :)

    37. Christian Hofmann on May 24, 2016

      Does Pebble 2 have the same dimensions like the original Pebble?

    38. Rom on May 24, 2016

      Will we see more languages supported along the way?
      Will Time 2 be more durable than Time? It tends to get scratched too easily.
