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.

Pebble 2: Fit & Smart

Pebble 2, the most complete wearable experience we’ve ever developed, is ready for your wrist!

Meet the Pebble 2 + Heart Rate family.

Meet the Pebble 2 + Heart Rate family.

The original Pebble put wearable technology on the map in 2012, inspiring others to follow our lead as we explored how wearable technology fits into our lives best. Pebble 2 is the ultimate expression of our approach to wearables: first-class fitness features coupled with the essential smartwatch experience we pioneered.

Pebble 2 is a long-lasting, water-resistant sports watch that’s thinner, lighter, and stronger than the original Pebble. It’s a focused, fun wearable that makes staying active, sleeping smarter, and nurturing healthy habits easier.

Pebble 2 + Heart Rate unifies the two experiences our community wants most: fitness tracking and time-saving convenience. No other band or smartwatch comes close to blending fit and smart together so beautifully for only $129.99.

Whether you’re psyched to live healthier or want to bring order to your digital life, Pebble 2 passes the test with flying colors.

iOS Text Reply Expands to More Users, Actionable Emails Coming Next

Pebble watches are still the only non-Apple wearables that can reply to received iOS Messages. It’s part of the work we do to deliver a rich, fully-featured integration with iPhone that keeps getting better. From being able to filter which apps send notifications to your wrist to integrating Pebble Health with Apple’s HealthKit, making the Pebble iOS experience the best it can be is how we roll.

Actionable notifications like Pebble replies to texts and emails are a bit easier to implement for Android users, thanks to that operating system’s more open philosophy, but we’re always hard at work to make the Pebble experience on both mobile platforms as consistent as possible. The new features available for iOS Pebble users today have been available to Android users for some time now.

Open, Collaborative, Crowdsourced: Meet the Pebble Health Wellness Platform

“Big things have small beginnings.”

Pebble on Kickstarter

Pebble’s dedicated wellness ecosystem got its start when Pebble Health launched last year with step and sleep tracking, and we’ve worked tirelessly to evolve it further.

Today, we’re introducing our vision for a world-class suite of services for developing and nurturing healthy habits. No matter where we are in our fitness journeys, we can all use help in living healthier and happier—whether that’s by managing stress, staying active, getting the right vitamins and nutrients, or taking time for reflection.

Introducing Open Health for Healthier Habits

Health’s place in the world of wearable technology is still uncharted territory—there’s much to discover and many questions to answer. No one yet knows exactly which services will work best for people, or how to best deliver a tailored, personalized experience that goes beyond cookie-cutter “solutions.” As part of our mission to pioneer and build the best wearable experiences imaginable, we’re making the Pebble Health platform more open and collaborative than ever.
