History is repeating itself.Smartwatch maker Pebble returned to Kickstarter for a third time today, raking in thousands of preorders for two new epaper smartwatches and a funky little wearable called a Core.

After 70 or so minutes, the company surpassed its $1 million goal  hey, just like last time , and I bet Pebble always planned on doing just that — we re talking about the company that perfected the Kickstarter marketing strategy.Last year, after securing enough preorders for the original Pebble Time, Pebble announced an additional watch to satiate fans: the Time Steel.

Will Pebble do something like that again?

A spokesperson for the company says no: This is the product line-up for 2016.

Anyways, here s a closer look at everything Pebble announced today.
