Pebble smartwatch to start shipping to backers on January 23
Following the December delivery setback, the good news keeps rolling in for backers of the e-paper Pebble smartwatch. After passing the FCC hurdle at the end of last month, we learned a couple of days back that the company was going to make a big announcement at CES, and it looks like the team didn’t disappoint on that front.
As announced during its Las Vegas press event, the Pebble watch will be heading to Kickstarter backers starting from January 23.
Pebble is pushing to produce 15,000 units of the smartwatch per week, which means it will take about 6-8 weeks for all the orders to be shipped out. Non-backers who like to get the wristwatch can still do so by going to their website and cough up $150, but obviously you won’t be receiving one before the 85,000+ supporters get theirs.
We’re glad that the Pebble story ends with a happy ending. Can’t wait to see the smartwatch arrive on your doorstep? Share your excitement with us in the comments below.
