The countdown on Pebble s website has finally struck 00 . Pebble has at last announced its third-generation smartwatch called the Pebble Time. The smartwatch features a new 64-color e-paper display and a completely new ‘Timeline’ user interface that are easy to use and navigate. It will be available for $199 when it goes on retail sale in May this year, though enthusiasts can pre-order theirs for $179 on Kickstarter.

The Pebble Time is 20 percent thinner, lighter and has a new curved design that makes it sit more comfortably on a user’s wrist. It also features a microphone for voice commands and dictating quick notes. The new UI is compatible with more than 6,500 existing Pebble apps and watchfaces.

The Timeline user interface is comprised of three buttons that take you to the past, future or present. Clicking the button on the top takes you to the notifications which you might have missed. The button on the bottom shows things coming up and the centre button shows things in the present including apps that can be scrolled through by pressing the top and bottom buttons. Like the original Pebble, the Pebble Time also guarantees up to 7 days of battery life, and is water resistant.

With the Pebble Time, the company seems to travel back in time from where it began. After being Kickstarter’s largest backed project, the Pebble Time will initially be available only on Kickstarter for 31 days. Pebble had made available approximately 10,000 units at a special early bird price of $159, which were sold out in minutes. There are a total of 20,000 units which are available for $179, which are still up for grabs. The Pebble Time will also be available through retail chains and Pebble’s own online store for $199 when it will be made available in May this year.

At the time of publishing, Pebble Time had already raised over $4 million on Kickstarter with over 19,000 backers in less than three hours since the project went live.
