Smartwatch vendor Pebble is apparently working on a new product that will "absolutely batter" Apple's rumoured iWatch device.

A senior source close to Pebble told PCR the unannounced device is set to launch in around six months or longer.

"I feel sorry for Apple, because what Pebble are doing will absolutely batter the iWatch," the source said.

"They're doing things much greater than their steel smartwatch. It's magical, magical stuff. It will hit the market in around six months' time or so."

Pebble revealed the Pebble Steel – a steel smartwatch device – at tech trade show CES in Las Vegas earlier this year.

The company originally made the headlines back in April 2012 after its Pebble smartwatch received significant backing on crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
