Pebble launch date to be moved

The smart watch, Pebble, is not coming out in September, as the creators hoped. The device is so popular that the creators were not able to manufacture enough to meet the high demand.

The production of Pebble is funded through Kickstarter – a website where consumers can invest in projects they find interesting. So far, the watch is the most popular project on the site. When it started, only about 1,000 units were expected to be delivered. Now, there are around 85,000 preordered watches.

Nevertheless, Pebble creator Eric Migicovsky appeals to the public to wait. “We adhere to a fairly aggressive┬áschedule that we have set up in May,” he writes in an update for Pebble buyers.

The design for the watch is finished already and the producer is now testing the individual components.

Pebble can be connected to smartphones via bluetooth. This will allow users to access SMS and emails, aside from other features.
