The Pebble’s Kickstarter campaign backers were the very first who got the opportunity to put their hands on the company’s newest smartwatch, the Pebble Time. Right now the wearable gadget becomes available for a wider audience having Best Buy for its exclusive distributor. Pre-sale on the smartwatch kick off today and the giant retailer is offering the device nationwide dressed in white, black and red color configurations.
To the world Pebble is known for one thing and one thing only – smartwatches. To fund the project the company launched Kickstarter campaign in April 2012 and since then has released three generations of watches. The latest member of the Pebble family called Pebble Time was announced just one week ago and today the company debuted a stainless steel version which will be known as Pebble Time Steel.
If you wanted to buy the Pebble smartwatch, but its variant of colors seemed too boring for you, now you may reconsider the purchase once again, since the company launches their popular smartwatches in three more additional neon colors: Fresh Green, Hot Pink and Fly Blue. What’s even more interesting you can freely change the watches’s bands and bodies. And, all the necessary elements are available via Pebble Appstore.
There is no doubt that Black Friday is the biggest shopping event of the year. However, as ‘hard’ as it is to believe, there are some people who don’s find any pleasure in squeezing through crowds and waiting long hours in huge lines at stores, even if it means getting the smartphone of your dreams at incredibly low price. With those customers in mind, Cyber Monday was invented. The idea is similar to Black Friday, the main difference being that you can take advantage of the deals mostly online.
Black Friday is a good day to get yourself a brand new Pebble smartwatch. The device is up for grabs from its official site as well as Amazon. As a special Black Friday deal, the maker is selling the watch with a $20 discount for $129.99. When the promotion ends, the Pebble will cost $149.99. And this is where Amazon steps in with one dollar cut, offering the watch for $148.99. Both, Amazon and Pebble, have black, white, red and orange units in stock, though orange variant is running low on Amazon. The silver model is currently on backorder.
If you have been following Kickstarter campaigns, you know that some of the products never come to life. Not Pebble, though. The smartwatch made it all the way up to stores and is now available for purchase at Best Buy. Exclusive to Best Buy, the black model of the Pebble watch is up for grabs online for $149.99. Brick and mortar stores will start selling the smartwatch on June 7th. The only color option available for the time being is black. If red is more your color, you will have to wait till August. Other hues are available only on the Pebble website.
