Pebble promised us the new App store would launch early 2014, and they remained true to their word. The official Pebble App Store just went live and can be browsed using the iOS app, features over 1000 apps and watch faces that can be installed on the company’s line of smartwatches.
Here’s the announcement from Pebble’s blog:
“We’re extremely proud to announce that the Pebble appstore is now live with over 1000 apps and watchfaces. The appstore is built into the Pebble app on your iOS or Android device, and lets you find, browse and download Pebble apps and watchfaces directly from your smartphone.
Pebble’s mission is to make products that mesh easily with your life. Until now, Pebble users discovered apps and watchfaces through several awesome third party resources like MyPebbleFaces. The Pebble appstore changes all this by providing a simple one-stop-shop for you to discover, manage, and install apps and watch faces.”
This ties together ‘everything pebble’ beautifully, and surely puts the Pebble Smartwatch in a league of its own. We cannot help but notice that Pebble is following the exact same route Apple is following with its hardware and App ecosystem. Pebble also announced the new Pebble Steel model recently.
The Pebble app is free, and available in the iTunes Store. The smartwatch can be found on the Pebble website, priced between $150 and $249 depending on the model.
