The weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds of waiting have passed. Pebble Time, the smartwatch people love and made happen on Kickstarter, is available now at pebble.com worldwide, Best Buy (online and in-store, U.S. only), and Target (online and in-store, U.S. only) the week of August 17.
We’re all about making the Pebble experience better over time, thanks to regular updates and feedback from the community.
Today, we’re happy to share updates to Pebble Time’s operating system and Android apps that bring top-requested settings and features to your wrist (full release notes below).
Pebble is all about helping people enjoy the time they have. Whether it means running the streets, making baristas think you’re from the future, kicking it at the pool, or bringing home championship trophies, we’re all about moments of awesome—big and small.
During the 2015 ESPYs, Pebble is debuting its Time of The Year Award, recognizing one inspirational figure who is living a pivotal moment in her or his life. Beyond honoring someone for regular, awe-inspiring day-to-day performance, Pebble’s Time of the Year Award is here to commemorate a defining time in someone’s life or career. We’re presenting our inaugural Time of The Year Award recipient with a special commemorative Gold Pebble Time Steel smartwatch, in addition to a second Pebble Time Steel to share with one lucky fan.
After playing one of the best seasons of her career to date; winning The Women’s World Cup’s Golden Ball (for Best Player) and Silver Boot (for 2nd Most Goals Scored); and leading Team USA to its third FIFA Women’s World Cup victory, it is with great pleasure that we name Houston Dash and US Women’s National Team soccer star, Carli Lloyd, as the first-ever Pebble Time of The Year Award honoree. It’s Carli’s time, now.
As huge soccer fans, Team Pebble was on the edge of its seat for every game. We were blown away by Carli’s performance in the tournament, and the huge boost she gave as a team leader. Her goal from midfield was plain epic. For laying it all out on the field, we couldn’t help but applaud Carli and recognize the awesome moments she’s made happen.
Congratulations, Carli! Keep being awesome.
Win a Pebble Time Steel!

Get excited. Pebble Time is nigh
We’re delighted to report Pebble Time Watch for iPhone is live on the iTunes AppStore.
It normally takes a few hours for ITunes app updates to be visible to all users around the world, so hang tight if the new apps don’t show up for you immediately.
All Pebble Time backers with watches in-hand can now set up their rewards, grab cool watchfaces, and discover amazing apps. An update (v2.6.6) to the original Pebble iPhone app is also available to Pebble and Pebble Steel users (full release notes for both apps are below).
Credit Where It’s Due
It’s thanks to you, the one-million-and-growing community of Pebble users, developers, and fans that Pebble Time Watch is on the AppStore today. You carried this torch across the finish line. If only we could dish out a million-plus high fives to all of you.
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.
