The project recently broke the $10 million mark, and while there’s still 8 days to go until the project is officially finished, all 85,000 watches have sold out.
Pebble will keep marking watches later on in the year, so you don’t have the opportunity to be part of the initial wave anymore. The first watches are expected to ship in September, and will now feature Bluetooth 4.0 which brings a low-power mode.
The watch is designed to connect to iOS and Android devices using Bluetooth and push notifications such as email, calendar alerts, and caller ID. The Pebble makes use of a e-ink display for outdoor visibility which saves on battery too, and the team has created an SDK so that developers can create their own apps and push them to the phone.
Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It’s infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watchfaces and useful internet-connected apps. Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages. While designing Pebble, we strove to create a minimalist yet fashionable product that seamlessly blends into everyday life.
