The smartwatch industry, if one were to solely consider word-of-mouth and casual acclaim, isn't doing as well as investors and speculators may have believed. Recent data shows that the stock in the Apple Watch has been steadily declining, and as it dwindles so does the overall reception of the Smart Watch itself. That would be untrue, however. According to Strategy Analytics, Apple still commands 52 percent of global smartwatch market shares, but that figure has declined while market shares for Android Wear (and Tizen) has steadily increased. In fact, global smartwatch shipments as a whole, "223 percent annually to reach 4.2 million units in the first quarter of 2016," according to Rajeev Nair, Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics.

So despite the less-than-overly-stellar reputation, smartwatches are indeed increasing in popularity overall at incredibly high rates - even going so far as to become more popular worldwide than beloved Swiss watches. With an increased demand, Pebble, one of the more acclaimed brands in the industry, has recently introduced a few brand new models set for release later this year: the Pebble Core, Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2.

The physical models of each device are slightly modified from earlier Pebble models, but have a mass of internal upgrades. The Pebble 2 now features a microphone, sleep and activity tracking, and heart-rate sensors, aiming for fitness users. The Pebble Time 2 also features the same new features of the Pebble 2, but now comes with a larger color display, and an even more immense battery life (10 days worth).

The more affordable Pebble Core is a bit more acutely designed with runners in mind. Starting at just $69, the Core is a small, matte square that resembles a slightly thicker iPod Shuffle. Attachable to the user's clothing, the Core comes with Spotify compatibility, GPS, voice notifications, and emergency services, as well as 4GB of space.

After demolishing its initial Kickstarter goal of $1 million USD in funding (now past $7.7 million), the California company is still hosting early-bird bids for each device for under $200.
