Pebble Time 2 GPS - August 2019

Unfortunately, the Pebble Time 2 does not have GPS built in. The benefit to this is that the battery life lasts much longer and it is likely that your phone already has GPS.

I personally, don’t find a big need for the GPS on my smart watches, but I’m not a runner. I do cycle, but am not into tracking my rides and exactly where I go.

The Pebble Core does have built in GPS if you really need it and want to stick with Pebble’s style and sense of function (I’m a big function over form guy).

Here’s a list of the Pebble Time 2’s official features:

  • Larger e-paper color display
  • Stainless steel body
  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • Automatic Step Tracker
  • Sleep Tracker
  • Built-in Microphone
  • Music Control
  • Up to 10 days of battery
  • Over 10,000 Apps & Watchfaces
  • Water resistant to 30 meters

They show great potential to change our lives almost as much, if not just as much, as smartphones have. I'm also an internet entrepreneur that makes my living via tech.
