I waited a long long time for my Pebble to arrive after backing it on Kickstarter. But since the arrival of iOS8 and several updates to the watch firmware it was worked well and I really like the watch.
My only gripe would be that the font size is a bit small (even on the largest setting) and I wish that they would make it bigger. Apart from that it is just about perfect.
With all the news about the Apple Watch I had wondered what Pebble’s answer to it would be and yesterday we found out with the launch of the Pebble Time. It looks awesome and I have ordered one but it seems that I am not the only person to think so.
The above image shows when Pebble Time reached it’s first $1M in under an hour making it the fastest to that price point on Kickstarter. As I type this the total is just a shade over $9m and there are still 30 days to go! Deliveries begin in May.
FYI the image above has been reduced from 1 minute 20 seconds to nine seconds.
