We don’t know if you have heard but for those of you living under a rock, CES 2014 is officially underway. CES is a conference that brings all of the innovative and leading technology companies (and start up’s) together and let’s them make some of the biggest announcements around. These announcements can range from new tech gadgets to a completely new direction in technology. Gadgets 4 Guys was unable to make it this year but is covering everything virtually and bringing the best announcements to our readers.
The first big announcement we thought was the most appealing to the gadget heads out there which was from a favorite company of ours called Pebble. You might remember Pebble as the company that destroyed their KickStarter goal and really set off the smartwatch craze. Their watch manages to work with iOS and Android which has made it a favorite of both phone users and the cool new apps that are coming out are very appealing. Pebble announced at CES that they will be bringing us Pebble Steel which is a full metal version of the Pebble. The current Pebble watch has bands made of rubber and the watch face made of plastic which turned some people off (not us though, every person at G4G has a Pebble watch) so Pebble created Steel. The glass is the famous Gorilla Glass we have all become familiar with from Apple and comes with optional leather straps too. This allows for a greater level of flexibility and means that the Pebble watch can go with any outfit. Pebble Steel is also waterproof which allows you to comfortably take a shower and not worry about completely ruining your watch. It does come at a higher price tag but as firsthand users of the original Pebble, you should definitely try out Pebble.
Pebble also announced that they will be releasing their own app store with a lot of different apps being created for the Pebble. The Yelp app will allow you to shake your wrist and have different restaurant ideas presented to you (which should help with all of the indecisive wives out there). ESPN will also have an app allowing you to see scores on your wrist and even Mercedes Benz will have an app. Pebble is awesome and are aligning themselves with the right people.
