Pebble Wearables

Simplify your life and always stay connected with a Pebble smartwatch.

The Pebble smartwatch was released in 2013 by the Pebble Technology Corporation. Funded mainly by crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, the Pebble Technology Corporation simply aims to make a watch that people love using everyday.

From smartphone notifications to tracking your exercise routine and much more, the Pebble Watch offers a host of intriguing features to consumers. Having sold more than one million smartwatches, Pebble has quickly become a big player in this competitive sector of the global electronics marketplace.

It also offers the Pebble Time, the Pebble Steel and the Pebble Time Steel, with Pebble again receiving a generous amount of funding through Kickstarter to help bring its innovative watch smartwatch ideas to life.
