Pebble Core Production Kick-off in Taiwan

This month, our Industrial Design and Production teams traveled to Taiwan, meeting with partners there to kick off the production process for Pebble Core.

The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) we’re collaborating with to plan out Pebble Core’s hardware design and production is very excited to get started. In the meantime, we’re whittling down the final tenths of millimeters from Pebble Core’s final industrial design, making it as sleek as possible.

The Smarthole Hoodie

Vote on Betabrand Think Tank »

Designed with smartwatches and wearables like Pebble Core in mind, The Smarthole Hoodie wants to bring a piece of apparel we all love into the 21st century.

The Smarthole Hoodie features an aperture to view your smartwatch in any situation, an internal pocket to keep your phone secure, and even a pocket and headphone channel for secure your Pebble Core.

Kickstarted on Vimeo

Get 25% Off »

Kickstarted follows three passionate creators—a musician fighting a debilitating illness, a never-say-die filmmaker, and a pair of hopeful inventors—turning to the crowd to fund their dreams. Created by the team who produced our videos for both this year’s campaign and last year’s Pebble Time project, the documentary is a Kickstarter success in its own right, raising over $86,000 from more than 800 backers.

On the path to crowdfunding success, the creators featured in Kickstarted find out that making your project real requires a lot more than money. The film is available now to buy or rent on Vimeo. The Pebble community can enjoy the film for 25% off by clicking here or using the promo code “Pebble25” on Vimeo.

The Superbook

Back on Kickstarter »

The Superbook is a $99 shell that turns your smartphone into a laptop. The project hit the ground running, smashing its $50,000 goal with almost $800,000 from over 5,300 backers just six days in. Three stretch goals have been unlocked (Int’l keyboard decals, extra USB port, bigger battery) with a fourth waiting to be unleashed if the project hits $1 million.

We’ve proudly backed The Superbook ourselves. Be the first to have your own by pledging on Kickstarter!

Lignite Music for iOS

Back on Kickstarter » 

Works with: Pebble Time-Series watches (Time, Time Steel, Time Round, Time 2) paired with iPhone

Edwin and Philipp got their start making Pebble watchfaces and successfully launching a Kickstarter campaign for their collection. Their second project for Lignite Music looks to make the iPhone listening experience great again. Even better, Lignite Music will fully integrate with Pebble for beautiful music playback right from your wrist.

Until next time,

Eric + Team Pebble

      thanks for no say nothing important on this update only what you do with our money (plus VAT) in Taiwan.

      on kickstarter I don't buy nothing, I give you money for support your project and you give me a reward (PT2) I don't lie to you and don't give you wrong VAT surprise.

      To the people who want Pokémon Go support: I want it like you want, but meanwhile, there're a couple of apps whose help to the hunt of pokémons, one of them is Pokehunt, it's on the store, I used it and is pretty precise, even in meters, in catched few but that's another story.

      I'd heard about that, seems like a stupid move on Nintendo's part. That's why I was wondering if you'd tried reaching out to them to become the "Official Smartwatch of Pokemon Go". Pebble is the least expensive and oldest manufacturer of Smartwatches on the market, not to mention the only ones that actually last more than a day! Seems like a match made in heaven (other than Nintendo's obsession with being a hardware company, when their software has always been better then their hardware, excluding their mobile gaming platforms).

      We would be happy to work on a Pokémon Go app for Pebble. Currently, the game doesn't have any public APIs for outside developers to build with.

      I also would like (and pay for) PokeGo support!

      Any chance you've reached out to Nintendo/Niantec to see about being the first smart watch to get Official support for Pokemon Go? (Especially since their "smartwacth" is delayed ;) )

    13. SungLi on July 27, 2016

      Hope some Pokemon Go support :D
      Taiwan is the best =w=

    14. Foot Time Boys on July 27, 2016

      When can we get an app for Pokemon Go. Similar to Pokemon Go+
