It has been a year since the king of smartwatch, Pebble, released any new device. The inactivity time was also the time that Google and Apple launched their own wearable platform. While Pebble still seems to be the best, its CEO is taking a step to improve the device to compete with Apple’s newest smartwatch.
In his recent interview, Pebble’s Eric Migicovsky claims that his company is not worried about the competition from Apple this coming April. He explains that after the launch of the Pebble Steel, the company has been focusing on investment and expanding the company. Migicovsky says that there are new projects that is in the work and will be coming very soon. Two of which are a new smartwatch and a new operating system that “will be unlike anything before.” The CEO continued to explain:
We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch. It doesn’t look like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone”
Migicovsky also ensures current users and developers that current applications will still be working on the new OS. He also reveals that many of the developers for the new platform was former employees of LG’s webOS team. The CEO hints at an event later this year, and while we did not see much, what we know so far is quite exciting.
