Next to the two new Pebble Steel smartwatches, Pebble also announced that it's getting ready to launch the Pebble appstore, the company announced back in December. The appstore, which will be part of the existing Pebble smartphone app on iOS or Android, allows Pebble users to find and download Pebble apps directly from the phone. By the end of January, the Pebble appstore will offer the centralized location for users to discover, manage and install apps and watchfaces. That means that users will more easily be able to find apps that help to track your workout, manage the music or control the thermostat. In addition, Pebble said it'll be curating the Pebble appstore to bring the latest and greatest apps and watchfaces right to the wrist.
On top of the upcoming Pebble appstore launch, Pebble also announced new partners it is working with. Pandora, ESPN and Mercedes Benz are joining Pebbles lineup of partners which already includes Yelp, Foursquare, GoPro and iControl. If you are attending the CES, Pandora, ESPN and Mercedes Benz are demoing their Pebble apps using Pebble Steel in Las Vegas.
