The Pebble smartwatch campaign on Kickstarter was one of the biggest ones to date and the company managed to raise 100 times more funding than it initially expected. Now it says it managed to ship over 400,000 units worldwide and the recently released Pebble Steel will definitely help push that number even further.
Yesterday, Pebble also slashed US $20 off the Pebble Steel with Leather Band, pulling it down to a still quite steep US $249. Of course, Pebble was one of the first usable and "good" smartwatches on the market and soon, it will be getting some serious competition from big players with Google Android Wear.
On the other hand, Pebble had a decent head start and currently has over 1,000 apps and 12,000 registered developers and hopefully Pebble Steel is just the begining.
