Tech startup Pebble has done it again! The company secured over $12,779,843 from 66,673 backers through its third Kickstarter campaign, which launched to raise $1 million for its new products, Pebble 2, Time 2, and Pebble Core. Each device offers new ways for users to enjoy the company’s famous technology.
Each of the devices offer users Pebble’s unique technology:
- Pebble 2 ($109): Offers up an upgraded version of Pebble that includes a sleep tracker and an uncompromising heart rate monitor.
- Time 2 ($179): Described as a premium heart rate enabled stainless steel smartwatch with an updated color display.
- Pebble Core ($79): For runners, it is a flippable fitness device that lets users leave their phones at home. For hackers, it is a keychain company that becomes a “magic button for anything” (i.e. call Uber, monitor pets, stream data from car ODB port). It is known as ultra-compact, ultra-lightweight, and ultra-affordable.
Not only was the campaign a huge success, it was named the third most funded Kickstarter ever. Pebble shared in an update:
“The Pebble community continues to amaze. This time around, you’ve carried our project to over $12 million from more than 63,500 backers. Your support means Pebble Core, Pebble 2, and Time 2 is now the #3 All-Time Most Funded project in Kickstarter history.”
Pebble’s second campaign is currently the most funded on the crowdfunding giant’s platform while its first campaign is the fourth most funded. The company will ship Pebble 2, Time 2 and Core worldwide, with the exception of Argentina, Belarus, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Myanmar/Burma, North Korea, Russia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Delivery is scheduled for later this year.
