Pebble, which made the first smartwatch worth mentioning, is developing two new models, the Pebble 2 and the Pebble Time 2.

The Core has a headphone jack, but also works with Bluetooth headphones if you hate wires.

It also has GPS, so it plays nicely with Strava, Runkeeper, and Under Armour Record, and you can program one of its buttons to send an emergency text with your location just in case you pull a hammy.

The two watches, which you ll find on Kickstarter next to the Core, feature a new software quirk called actions.

Pressing the top button on the right side of the watch opens a list of one-tap options shows up: Text Anna, Call an Uber, whatever.

The Pebble Time 2 is stainless steel and comes in gold, replacing both Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel in a single device.
