Updated 06/21 01:30am Eastern: Hurry hurry! The podcast is out!
What does a smartwatch need to succeed in 2015? Is it a color screen? A digital crown? An intuitive UI? Or is it just the right brand name? We’re weighing those factors and more today as we take a look at the latest smartwatch from the people who effectively invented the category. Join us as we talk Pebble Time on the Pocketnow Weekly!
The news doesn’t stop at watches, of course, so we’re also covering all the haps from the week in mobile technology. From the iPad Pro to the 3D Nexus to a Samsung BlackBerry, we’re hitting all the rumors as we seek to suss out fact from fiction – and worthy from unworthy.
All that plus your listener mail on Pocketnow Weekly 153! It’s hissing steam and screeching hot, so we’re gonna throw the lever before we blow a boiler.

Pebble Time Talk
After an unboxing and a 24-hour run-in period, Pocketnow’s Editorial Director sits down across the table from its Chief Chicagoan to get to the bottom of the great Pebble Time debate: red trim versus black. (Oh, and we’ll be talking about everything else surrounding Pebble’s latest smartwatch, too.)
