Let Pebble Time Shipping Begin! Pre-Orders Start June 22

Pebble Time Shipping Starts Today

Let’s Ship Some Watches!

Pebble Time rewards begin their journeys home as shipments to our amazing Kickstarter backers are underway:

  • With Pebble Time now at distribution centers, shipping labels and tracking numbers will start going out and ramp up quickly.
  • The first 10,000 Pebble Time rewards will ship from our five distribution centers around the world this week.
  • From there, we’ll keep on shipping! All Pebble Time backers should receive tracking numbers by mid-June.

The support and feedback from our first million Pebblers since starting this journey has carried us further and faster than we imagined. Thanks to them, we’re delivering the most focused, purpose-built smartwatch for busy people to Get. Things. Done.

Pebble Time builds on the past, focuses on the present, and welcomes the future.

Up Your Pebble Watchface Game!

Download Thin »

Thin by Chris Lewis

Thin by Chris Lewis is live now on the Pebble appstore. Get it in color with Pebble Time!

With traditional watches, you’ve got one face forever—changing your watch’s look means shelling out for something new. Not so much with Pebble, though.

Since the beginning, you’ve remixed Pebble in ways we never would have imagined. Giving you a wrist-top canvas to express yourself remains one of coolest reasons to have a Pebble—you know it’s true! Pebblers are pretty darn creative. We love seeing your personalizations as much as you love making them happen.

Pebble Apps of the Week (17–23 Apr)

Apps of the Week Banner

Apps are what make Pebble awesome. Ever since introducing our first smartwatch to the world, developers have used Pebble as a launchpad for doing fun, useful, and delightful things—right from your wrist. Our developer tools encourage people to give Pebble new features and capabilities that weren’t there before and share these apps with the community to enjoy. When our developer community wants Pebble to do something new, they build it!

Even better, Pebblers love working together. When one Pebbler needed help with an app to help manage the after effects of a stroke, the community banded together to craft an app that would help her out.

Apps are Pebble’s foundation—they’re the soul that gives your smartwatch life. With so many apps to choose from, we decided to do some soul-searching for those hidden gems.

Take a peek at what we found.

Test ‘em out on friends and family this weekend—see how many smiles you get versus side-eyes :)

Looking to deliver the perfect time-related pun? Watch and learn.

Started with our backers, now we’re here: Pebble hits the 1 million smartwatch milestone

Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky gave the world a taste of what’s in store for 2015, on top of a big milestone all Pebblers can take pride in: shipping our 1 millionth smartwatch. We managed to get Pebble no. 1 million—a Brushed Stainless Pebble Steel—sent to us at HQ. Grumpy Cat wasn’t too impressed, but we love what this particular unit represents.

Grumpy Cat + 1MM Pebble

To the uninitiated, this Pebble Steel looks like any other. In our eyes, it’s a hallmark of where we’ve been and where we can go next, with Pebblers by our side. If you’ve got an idea about what we should do with this super-special Pebble Steel, give us a shout on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, the Pebble Forums, or on r/pebble!

Beyond the warm and fuzzies shipping our one millionth watch generated, we discovered a cool parallel between Pebble’s early performance and another iconic gadget’s: the iPod. Pebble sold 1MM smartwatches after its first seven quarters. Apple sold 977K iPods after its first seven quarters. That’s some good company to be in, eh?
