Pebble Time is now the most funded project on Kickstarter

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.

  • 2015 is a great year, picking up the black pebble time steel and the Stainless Steel Apple watch!
  • Good for them. I love my Pebble. Posted with my Sony Xperia Z3 via the iMore App for Android
  • Looks exactly like an Apple watch hmmmm... Sent from the iMore App
  • Apple Watch was not the first square-ish smart watch. This has a paper ink display, 4 buttons, case side design is different enough, and has larger bezels. Looks nothing like the Apple Watch to me. Just an updated take on the Pebble Steel from a year ago. Posted with my Sony Xperia Z3 via the iMore App for Android
  • It's the same look as the edition and the one Apple watch... Very similar . It's like buying a honda and then Hyundai comes out with a very similar accord looking vehicle Sent from the iMore App
