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.

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

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.

Getting punny for the weekend

Enjoy some Pebble jokes for the weekend!

It’s time. No, not Pebble Time—though we’ve got plenty of that on deck. It’s time kick off the weekend with some jokes.

Good puns are always welcome at Pebble. If the joke has to do with watches or time, even better! Since we’re all about sharing the love, why not end the week on a light note with a few that made us chuckle? 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.

7 Secret Tricks to Power-Pebble Like a Boss

Pebble: More to Love at Sweet New Prices

Pebblers love how their smartwatches get more awesome with time. There’s always cool new things to do and discover. Kick off the weekend with a roundup of tips to up your Pebble game.

Jumping to your favorite apps with one press, ordering menus how you want, and partying in the pool are just a taste of the seven powers you may not have known your Pebble had. Check them out below:

1) Quick Launch

Quick Launch lets you jump from a watchface to your favorite Pebble apps. It’s a beautiful way to access what you love with just one button press. Got two Pebble apps that you want to give VIP status to? Go for it:

  1. From your Pebble, press Select » Settings » Quick Launch.
  2. Select a button (Up or Down) you’d like to enable a Quick Launch shortcut for.
  3. Select Set App to assign a Quick Launch shortcut for the button you’re customizing.

Once set, a long press of the Up or Down buttons while in a watchface will Quick Launch the app you specified for each button. Easy!

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?
