The Pebble brand is one of the most respected and revered in the field of watches. So their eventual entry into the smartwatch world was a source of intense speculation and rumors – so much so that the Kickstarter for the upcoming Pebble Time smartwatch obliterated its fundraising goal and has accumulated almost $5 million as of this writing.
The Pebble Time didn’t earn all that support just through marketing hype. It’s a truly unique entry to the smartwatch genre, with a color e-ink display that allows the watch’s battery to last as long as a week on a single charge. Then there are the 6,500 apps specifically for the Pebble Time, which give it an unparalleled level of functionality and versatility.
You still have a month to get in on the ground floor of the Pebble Time at the smartwatch’s Kickstarter page right here, where pre-orders start at $160. There you can also get a lot more information on the watch and what it can do, and the first shipments are supposed to start in May.
