Since Google launched Android Wear, all eyes have been on the company as well as its hardware partners like Motorola and LG who gave a glimpse at their first smartwatches running on the new OS. On the sidelines Pebble has quietly revealed that since launching in January 2013 it has shipped more than 400,000 smartwatches worldwide, Fortune reports.

The startup began mass producing the smartwatch in January 2013 and before going global in November, it had shipped 190,000 smartwatches. That translates to a rise of 210,000 in just about four months. The company also revealed that there are now over 1,000 Pebble apps on the app store, with over 12,000 developers currently at work to bring more apps in the near future.

Amid growing competition from the likes of Sony’s SmartWatch 2 and Samsung’s Tizen-powered Gear 2, Pebble has gone about doing its business and also recently introduced a more premium Pebble Steel at CES.

Though the wearable segment has still to strike gold, Pebble is by far considered to be the best of the lot.
