Must Wait For Pebble Smartwatch

Must Wait For Pebble Smartwatch

The latest update sent to Pebble’s Kickstarter investors (and a few Engadget editors) is a double-edged one. After announcing that the smartwatch will be available in a new orange edition, the makers admitted that the crowd-funded wrist candy won’t be shipping to its backers on schedule in September.

No new date has been disclosed just yet, but the delay was attributed to the project having to abandon early plans of making just 1,000 smartwatches. The level of production has now ballooned, meaning the factories involved are aiming to hit 15,000 Pebbles per week  “as soon as possible.”

The Pebble is “the first smartwatch to offer full iPhone and iOS compatibility”. It features a 1.26-inch 144×168-pixel black and white e-paper display with backlight, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, four buttons, a vibrating motor and a three-axis accelerometer. The battery is expected to last more than seven days on a charge.
