If you missed out on your chance to pick up a Pebble Time during Pebble’s very successful campaign (in fact the most successful in Kickstarter history), you can now remedy that by pre-ordering it to ensure you receive your smartwatch “as soon as possible.”
The best interface for a damn good smartwatch is time. Pebble Time’s new timeline interface respects that busy people want to Get. Things. Done. Pebble Time lets you act now, reflect on the past, and look into the future. With a new color e-paper screen and a thin, comfortable ergonomic design, the Pebble Time smartwatch is the companion you’ll want with you every moment, every day.
The company is now wrapping up shipping orders to its campaign backers. It will then begin to offer its latest smartwatch through its online store, Best Buy in the U.S. and later brick and mortar stores. In the meantime, it has begun to take pre-orders.
Pebble Time pre-orders in the U.S. will be managed through Best Buy. International orders will be handled by Pebble’s own website. It is available in black, red or white for US$199 (about CA$250).
Missing from yesterday’s announcement is the time frame for pre-orders to begin.
Pebble also expects that Pebble Time Steel reward shipments will begin in July. Regular orders will presumably then follow later this summer.
