It’s On: Bring Three New Pebbles to Life on Kickstarter

In 2012, you put smartwatches on the map during the original Pebble project, raising over $10M on Kickstarter. In 2015, you made crowdfunding history again with Pebble Time, supporting our second campaign for over $20M. They say “good things come in threes,” and “everything’s better with friends,” so we’re inviting you to join us for our latest adventure.

Let’s make wearables great again 🙂

How Pebble Kickstarted the Smartwatch: a Q&A with Eric Migicovsky

Pebble lineup on tabletop

Interested in how Pebble’s story and approach to wearable technology evolved from its humble beginnings, entrepreneur and author Michael Price recently visited Pebble HQ for a Huffington Post Q&A with our CEO, Eric Migicovsky. The piece touches on how feedback from inPulse—Eric’s earlier watch project which integrated with Blackberry phones—influenced Pebble’s direction and how a clear, authentic message helped its Kickstarter project succeed as much as it did.

Eric Migicovsky and the team that built the Pebble blazed trails and launched an entirely new product category into the market long before Google, Apple or Samsung came along.Huffinton Post

Two years after successfully crowdfunding Pebble on Kickstarter, interest in smartwatches and wearable technology continues to grow. There’s now a variety of approaches to how a meaningful wearable experience should look, feel, and perform on a daily basis.
