The Pebble Smartwatch gets a smart strap that adds GPS.

The Pal Strap is a GPS smartstrap adding GPS to the Pebble Smartwatch. The Pal Strap is working independent from the smartphone. the strap is lightweight. When combined with the Pebble it is 20% lighter and more compact than the average GPS watch says the Pal Strap inventor. 

Designed to track wearers’ speed, distance, elevation and route for up to 24 hours, the Pal strap is built with Qualcomm SiRF GPS that not only conserves a user’s smartphone battery but also acts as a battery backup for their Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel watches.

Unlike GPS on smartphones that easy drains 4-5 hours of battery life, this Pebble smartstrap lengthens each watch’s battery life by seven extra days, essentially doubling the Pebble’s battery, allowing users to leave their smartphones behind and enjoy their outdoor activities freely.

The Pal strap is available through a Kickstarter campaign for $79 here.

Pebble sold 1 million smartwatches as of end of 2014. There are no new sales numbers available from Pebble. A market with more than 1 million potential customers seems enough to launch an accessory like the Pal strap.
