The smartwatch industry is getting competitive with every passing day. Several big OEMs have launched a number of smartwatches, powered by Android Wear, which are already available in the market, but one should not forget Pebble, one of the early start ups in the industry.
In an interview with The Verge, Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky announced the company has surpassed one million sales milestone as of December 2014.
This number is more than double of what the company sold back in March 2014, which amounted to 400,000 units so it’s an impressive number, thanks to regular updates, new features and price cuts.
We can’t be sure about how it stacks up against the competition since Google, and other OEMs, have yet to reveal their sales figure for 2014. Samsung reportedly sold over 800,000 Galaxy Gear watches back in 2013, but there’s no word from the Korean company about the recent numbers.
Migicovsky also mentioned they have new products and a software update lined up for 2015 — they are not going down without a fight. The software is said to be a totally different platform which is not seen on smartwatches yet.
“We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch,” boasts Migicovsky, before adding that while apps will continue to exist on Pebble, they won’t be the main focus of the platform. “It doesn’t look like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone,” added Migicovsky.
