The original Pebble smartwatch started off on Kickstarter and managed to raise over $10 million in its funding campaign. The smartwatch also received its fair share of success, and the company later released a more good looking version of the wearable known as the Pebble Steel.
Not too long ago, the company once again went to Kickstarter to gather funds for their upcoming Pebble Time smartwatch. Surprisingly, it appears the Pebble Time smartwatch is even popular then its predecessor, raising over $20 million with 15 more hours to go before the campaign ends (at the time of writing this).
This makes Pebble Time the highly funded program in the history of Kickstarter, and it still has a little time to go before the campaign ends.
Instead of a black and white display, the new Pebble time features an e-paper display which can offer users with an impressive battery time of over seven days on a single charge. Furthermore, the smartwatch also has a microphone to send replies to incoming notifications, or to save voice notes on the smartwatch.
The Pebble Time is also 20 percent thinner and lighter than the original Pebble, and there’s a Pebble Time Steel as well for those who care about the looks of the smartwatch.
Pebble Time carries a $199 price tag with the shipping expected to commence in June 2015. As for the Pebble Time Steel, it costs a little higher, that is, $299.
