While everybody anticipates the launch of the Apple Watch in April, Stone CEO Eric Migicovsky informed The Verge that his firm sold its one millionth smartwatch in December 2014. That’s a whole lot a lot more Pebble watches than the 400,000 marketed back in March. Stone intends to take advantage of its success by disregarding Apple’s foray into the wearables market as well as launching a new software application platform for smartwatches in 2015.
‘We have actually located a brand-new structure to utilize as an interaction design on the watch,’ Migicovsky said in an exclusive interview with The Verge. ‘It does not look like what we have today, and it does not resemble what’s on your mobile phone,’ he added.
While Migicovsky really did not elaborate what Pebble had particularly prepared for this year, Dan Seifert of The Brink says its brand-new system is ‘unlike anything else utilized on smartwatches to this day.’
Whatever Pebble has up its sleeve it better excel, since the smartwatch market is getting a great deal a lot more affordable after Apple introduces its very own watch in a couple of months. Stone also needs to compete with the similarity Samsung, Motorola, Sony as well as other producers who have already launched their own Android Put on watches with strategies to release more.
Samsung today announced its Unpacked 2015 event in Barcelona, Spain on March 1st. While the firm is just expected to reveal two brand-new Galaxy S mobile phones at the keynote, it is reported to be dealing with its next generation Gear Live watch. A brand-new Motorola 360 is also reported to be in the pipeline, and LG is supposedly functioning on a new line of Android Wear devices to introduce this year.
