Pebble announces three new, funky colors for its smartwatch

pebble announces three new funky colors smartwatch
The Pebble Steel may be stylish, but the original Pebble smartwatch has a playful look that’s still appealing. If you’ve held out for new color combinations, you’ll be happy to know that Pebble introduced new colors for its smartwatch earlier today.

Available for a limited time, the three new colors include Fresh Green, Hot Pink, and Fly Blue. Regardless of the corny names, they are priced at the same $150 as their different colored brethren.

Myriam Joire, Pebble’s chief envangelist, revealed to Engadget that the inspiration for the colors comes from a “#ColorMyPebble” campaign that was run a few years ago as part of the smartwatch’s Kickstarter campaign back in 2012. Even though the winners were orange and gray, Pebble has since used the contest’s runner-ups as part of the original Pebble’s color repertoire.

Unlike the company’s other color options for the Pebble, the three limited edition colored Pebble smartwatches will include matching wristbands. The company will also release a new set of watchfaces today, as well as a new app from The Weather Channel.

The new Pebble smartwatches join the limited edition Reading Rainbow Pebble smartwatches, which were announced as pledge rewards during LeVar Burton’s Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign. Coming in Jet Black, the Reading Rainbow Pebble smartwatches has Burton’s name laser-etched on the back, as well as early access to a custom watchface featuring Burton’s face in 8-bit fashion.

If you do go for one of the new colors, don’t forget to check out our list of must-have apps, watchfaces, and games for your Pebble.

Remember Yelp? It’s back with a brand new app design

Restaurant and business recommendation site Yelp is back in a major way with a sleek Android app redesign that could see it reach the heights of popularity that it once had. The app improves the user experience on just about every level, putting local businesses front and center while providing updates on things like menu additions and other service updates. Although a lot of the information can be found in other places, the new and improved Android Yelp app consolidates it all into easily digestible pieces for easy viewing and quick searches.

In addition to providing official updated information from local businesses, the new update makes it easier than ever to find and leave user reviews thanks to the map feature that uses your phone's location to list all nearby businesses. This means that you can easily go from looking at a restaurant's hours, writing a review about it, and finding new places in your neighborhood — all in a few taps.

The Galaxy S22 comes in a new color, and it’s a Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 teaser
Stack of Samsung Galaxy S22 phones.

Samsung loves to release new colors and special editions of its top-end phones. This year, the Galaxy S22's summer color refresh comes in a delightful shade of purple that really stands out from the existing slate of colors. "Bora Purple," as Samsung calls it ("bora" is Korean for purple, it turns out!), is a subtle and light purple hue that looks great on the S22's simple frame.

Nothing changes about the finishes on the S22 — it's still shiny sides, matte back — for this colorway. The glossy metal frame is barely perceptibly purple, nearly matching the frame of the white color option. The metal's gloss is still what hits you.

Mobvoi will use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 processor in a forthcoming smartwatch. It’s one of just a few brands to officially announce it will adopt Qualcomm’s new chip, which was itself only announced on July 19, but Movoi has stopped short of providing masses of details on the device it will be housed within.

What do we know? Only what Mobvoi has told us at this stage, which is the Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 chip will be used in a new TicWatch model, and that it will make it the most powerful smartwatch Mobvoi has released yet. The teaser image above shows a circular smartwatch with a ridged bezel, but gives nothing about the hardware away. The company’s Vice President of Engineering, Robert Zhang, had this to say:
