pebble-time-kickstarter

Last night, Pebble unveiled its latest wearable called Time. The smartwatch is available on Kickstarter for a month, before it goes on sale. Since its announcement last night, Pebble Time has broken all Kickstarter records by raising over $7.6 million in less than a day. Also Read - Pebble Twins TWS earbuds review: Hit or Miss?

At the time of filing the story, Pebble had raised over $7.6 million from around 36,000 backers. It hit its target of $500,000 in about half hour, and hit the $1 million mark in another 15 minutes. In less than five hours, Pebble Time managed to raise $5 million, which obliterated the previous Kickstarter record held by Coolest Cooler, which took seven days and six hours to reach this number.

Unsurprisingly, this kind of traffic and numbers had an effect on the website, and there were reportedly a couple of crashes. Not that Pebble s founder Eric Migicovsky was complaining, who joked about temporarily breaking Kickstarter.

The Pebble Time boasts a new 64-color e-paper display and a completely new Timeline UI. The wearable is 20 percent thinner, lighter and has a new curved design. It also features a microphone for voice commands and dictating quick notes. Like the original Pebble, the Pebble Time also guarantees up to seven days of battery life, and is water resistant.

The Timeline UI is segregated into three parts Past, Present, and Future. Under the first category you can check emails, step counts for the day, or a match score from a game you missed last night, under future you can check what s coming up next like schedules, reminders, movie timings. As for the present by clicking a button you can keep a tab on the stock market, and what songs you re playing. The new UI is compatible with more than 6,500 existing Pebble apps and watchfaces.

Pebble Time will be priced at $199 (Rs 12,350 approximately) when it goes on sale in May, in the meantime however, enthusiasts can pre-order one for $179 (Rs 11,110 approximately) on Kickstarter. Pebble had approximately 10,000 units available at a special early bird price of $159, which sold out in minutes. There are a total of 20,000 units which are available for $179, which are still up for grabs.
