Pebble ready to ship out more pre-ordered smartwatches soon
It’s been four months since Pebble first started shipping out smartwatches to its Kickstarter backers, and after some technical glitches and a few delays, Pebble is finally just about ready to start shipping watches to those who pre-ordered after the initial Kickstarter campaign.
In a forum post, Pebble announced that customers who ordered Jet Black and Cherry Red Pebble’s will be receiving an email to confirm their shipping address at some point this week. In fact, there could be an email sitting in your inbox right now, so go and check.
Other colour variants will be shipping in the next few weeks, as Pebble is still trying to clear Kickstarter orders for the orange, grey and white colored watches. The company had been having trouble with its manufacturing capabilities, and even had to resort to offing customers a change in colour to ease the strain on its manufacturing line.
If you’re still waiting for your order then it seems that patience is the key, as Pebble has received much stronger demand than its manufacturing capabilities were prepared for. It could well be a couple more months until all of the Kickstarter backed and pre-ordered Pebble’s are finished shipping out.
