Pebble E-Paper watch to start shipping later this month
The Pebble E-Paper watch will start shipping on January 23 for those that were part of its phenomenal Kickstarter success. Pebble made the announcement at its CES 2013 press event where it also confirmed that the Pebble would have a magnetic charging port, magnetometer and ambient light sensors. In case you forgot, the Pebble E-Paper watch will connect to your iPhone (or Android Phone) over Bluetooth and runs apps that let you use GPS, control music and media playback, read notifications and see who is calling you.
Without any further ado, the moment you have all been waiting for has arrived – we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll begin shipping Pebble on January 23rd. We’ve been working very hard for the past year to deliver something that we’re truly proud of...and we know that we would not have been able to do it without the support of our Backers. So thank you!
We’re planning to continue our aggressive update cycle and ship new software updates every 2-3 weeks. Notably missing from our launch release is support for Runkeeper. We're working closely with RK and estimate that it should be enabled by the beginning of March. Sorry about that!
You can see the complete press event video below; but be warned, if you didn’t take part in the original Kickstarter campaign then you are going to be really upset seeing the watch in action. It looks totally awesome and will certainly up your geek profile should you manage to get one.
