Pebble Time

The Pebble team has just announced that the first batch of its new Pebble Time smartwatches will begin shipping out to early backers on Wednesday, May 27th. Production has been in full swing since the beginning of this month, and the company expects all Pebble Time Rewards to be manufactured by the end of May. All backers of the project should receive a tracking number by mid-June.

The company has also given a few updates on the status of the new mobile applications that will be specific to the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel. Dubbed Pebble Time Watch, the app will let you set up and manage your new smartwatch. It’s also where you’ll find the new Pebble appstore that consists of color and Timeline-ready applications.
