Tear Down Time Pebble smart watch shows which has larger screen than it used




A teardown of the Time Pebble smart watch shows that the watch has a larger screen than it uses. It looks like a pebble 1.39 “screen of JDI has applied, but it only 1.25” used to run old apps and watch faces in full screen.

The specs on the site of Pebble mention the presence of the 1.25 “screen, but the teardown by iFixit shows that the screen is actually bigger and Pebble deliberately hedged a portion of the screen. The reason is probably JDI which could not deliver the color screen in the desired format and the desired resolution, so watch faces and apps that developers made for previous Pebble watches would only occupy a portion of the screen.

The Pebble of Time screen has a resolution of 168×144 pixels, but the probable screen itself has a resolution of 205×148 pixels. In order to cover the rest of the screen, there is a frame in the screen. It is a “Memory LCD” that uses little power and can display 64 colors.

Time has a battery of 150mAh, according to the teardown. That is higher than previous Pebble watches, which have 140 and 130mAh batteries, but smaller than those in many other smart watches. Despite claims Pebble still a battery life of a week.

The processor in the watch of ST Microelectronics . The Cortex-M4 processor core running at a maximum clock speed of 180MHz. The Pebble Time went in February sales on Kickstarter and the company’s first models now being delivered.
