Pebble’s Next Step

NOTE: This post has been updated to clarify refund timing for eligible backers receiving pledge reimbursements from Kickstarter.

Dear Pebblers,

Thank you all for being such loyal supporters and champions of the Pebble community and brand. You helped start something fantastic when you backed our first Kickstarter project (and shout-out to the first inPulse users). Since then, we’ve shipped over 2 million Pebbles around the world!

However—due to various factors—Pebble is no longer able to operate as an independent entity. We have made the tough decision to shut down the company and no longer manufacture Pebble devices. This news has several major implications, and we hope to answer as many questions as possible here, in Kickstarter Update #17, and on our Support site.

A New Face for Pebble

Note: Post has been updated to include availability of Pebble Time Round metal bands for sale at pebble.com.

It Started with a Text

Seven years ago, I interrupted a morning bike ride to pull out my phone and check a text message. That moment inspired me to work on what became the original Pebble smartwatch.

Pebble has since established a lineup of uncomplicated smartwatches that enhance, simplify, and blend into our lives. Supported by amazing, die-hard users, we get to build technology that delights people every day. Our approach is simple and drives all we do: Start small. Improve constantly. Be faithful to your community. Get better with time.

Today, we are setting new standard for what smartwatches can be and who they can be for. Today, Pebble comes full circle.
