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!
