Since Jan 2013, Pebble has sold nearly 400,000 Pebble smartwatches and according to reports, the revenue is somewhere close to $60million. Analysts predict that Pebble could double up on profits in 2014 as it has added a new line of Pebble Steel smartwatches. Unlike other Smartwatches like Sony Smartwatch 2 or Samsung Galaxy Gear, Pebble uses a eInk display and uses side buttons instead of touch displays. For now, Pebble has been one of the very popular smartwatches.

Last week, Google announced Android Wear, its answer to wearables OS and alongside the launch of the platform, it also revealed a couple of smartwatches running on Android Wear coming this summer – Moto 360 and LG G Watch. Moto 360 comes with a circular dial, the first of its kind(for a smartwatch) and looks absolutely gorgeous. So, Pebble may have some big competition in the coming years. Can Pebble stand up?
