Background and Identification
Pebble smartwatches were funded from a Kickstarter campaign. The Kickstarter campaign ran from April 11 of 2012 to May 18th of 2012. The project raised $10.3 million, which made it the most-funded Kickstarter project yet. Pebble first started shipping watches to Kickstarter supporters in January of 2013.
The second generation of Pebble smartwatches was launched in 2015. This series was again funded through Kickstarter. The campaign raised $20.3 million, which broke Kickstarter site records. Unfortunately, in 2016 Pebble shut down their production due to financial issues and refunded their Kickstarter supporters. The company announced its complete shutdown in December of 2016. The company’s intellectual property was purchased by Fitbit. While official Pebble support ended in 2016, Pebble smartwatches have had a notable afterlife, and Pebble smartwatches have since been supported by the Rebble site.
The Pebble Time Round was released in September of 2015. It has a battery life of two days, with a full day’s worth of charge being stored from just 15 minutes of charging. The watch came in two wrist strap sizes (14 or 20 mm) and a variety of color options. The Pebble Time Round was similar to the Pebble Time in features (microphone for voice message reply, etc.) but had a thinner and rounder display. The Pebble Time Round was praised for its battery life, general design, screen, and water resistance. On the other hand, the watch was criticized for its software support, interface, and price.
The Pebble Time Round features a circular watch display attached to a wristband. It has physical buttons on the right and left sides of the watch face.
