The Pebble watch, a Kickstarter funded project, has finally made its way over to the FCC, which means that it is well on its way to be released to the mass market very, very soon. Most consumer electronics devices that arrive at the FCC tend to follow this similar path, so we are making this rather safe assumption. Well, you can say that the Pebble watch did encounter its fair share of delays along the way, with a release being scheduled in September earlier this year. Well, that is not to be, and Pebble has stepped forward earlier to say that the Pebble Watch will be released in 2013, so it is rather timely to see the FCC nod of approval arrive.
The FCC filings from Pebble do show a host of internal and external photos, in addition to a partial manual for the smartwatch. It seems that the Pebble will be powered by a 32-bit Cortex-M3 CPU from ST Microelectronics, carry a 1.26” TLT LCD display from Sharp, and a Panasonic Bluetooth processor. Are you stoked yet, and do you want to end up like some sort of Dick Tracy with the Pebble Watch wrapped around your wrist?
