Just last week, Pebble Time — the follow-up to the popular Pebble and Pebble Steel — took Kickstarter by storm. After blowing past their initial $500,000 goal, the campaign is now well over $13 million and still going strong. An additional boost has come from today's announcement of the Pebble Time Steel, a luxury version of the new smartwatch. The combined effort has pushed Pebble Time over the top, making it the most funded project in Kickstarter history.
Pebble Time builds upon what made the original Pebble great, adding in redesigned hardware, a "smartstrap" for third-party connectivity, a color display, and a new version of Pebble OS.
Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky had this to say:
We have so much gratitude for our community and the herculean support they've shown us — from the first Pebble Kickstarter campaign to today. We're inspired by the backers who believe in us, and our goal is to continue making them happy with amazing smartwatches that simplify our daily life and help us accomplish more. It's been an unbelievable ride, and there are still 24 days left!
Pebble Time will be shipping in May and is available in black, white and red. Pebble Time Steel will hit the mail in July and is offered in gold, silver, and black. Various backing tiers are still available for both devices.
If you haven't yet checked out Pebble Time, you can get in on the action via Kickstarter. There are still a few weeks to go, but don't think it over for too long.
