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.

Celebrating Women in Computing at Grace Hopper 2015

Below is a guest post by Erin Boehlert, a Computer Science student at UNC Chapel Hill. Pebble invited Erin to attend the 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Houston, TX and blog about her experience during the conference.

First of all, thank you to Pebble for sponsoring me and a few other women at UNC Chapel Hill to attend The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (#GHC15)! I wouldn’t have been able to go without it. This was my first time attending Grace Hopper, so I wanted to make the most of my experience. Here are some of the highlights from the event:

Congratulations Carli Lloyd: 2015 Pebble Time of The Year Award Winner!

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.

Congratulations, Carli Lloyd, Pebble's 2015 Time of The Year Award Honoree!

Congratulations, Carli Lloyd, Pebble’s 2015 Time of The Year Award Honoree!

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!

Are you a super-fan of Carli Lloyd and US Women’s Soccer? Do you have what it takes to win Carli’s #TimeOfTheYear Pebble Time Steel? Stay tuned to this blog post for details on how to enter the drawing and show us what you’ve got!

Until next time!

<3,Team Pebble
