Texts, email notifications and a built in GPS all in one simple little watch. When Pebble Technology released their new smart watch Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors were not very impressed, to say the least.
However, within the first twenty eight hours the Pebble Watch raised over one million dollars in funding from, well, who else, but you the consumer. Thanks to the world largest investment platform, KickStarter Pebble Technology now see’s itself as the largest competitor in smart watch technology for the Android and iPhone.
The companies goal was just one hundred thousand dollars and has now received well over eight million dollars. Forbes has this to say about the new smart watch “Proven track record…Incredibly useful product.”
