Oodles of Color

Hi everybody! 

Quick update before the Canada Day long-weekend.

Color Selection

We've started accepting color suggestions. So if you've got any ideas for cool Pebble colors, here's how you can get your voice heard! The best way to send us your color is with the hex color value. Don't forget to create a memorable name, then send your suggestion to us via

After you post your suggestion, we'll create a render of Pebble using your suggestion and post it on our Pinterest page. If you like someone else's color combination, be sure to repin, tweet, like or generally talk about it!

Next week, we'll be sending out an email to all backers of a color pebble with a link to the color voting survey, taking into consideration all the suggestions that we've received.

PCB Layout Complete

A major milestone is complete...we've created the final design for our printed circuit board (PCB). This is the main electronics board that contains all the integrated circuits and passive components that make up Pebble. It's double sided...so that 3D render above is just one side! The wires coming out the bottom are from the vibrating motor.

This is close to the actual size of the board. It's roughly the size of the 'tab' key on a MacBook keyboard.

Android Developer APIs

Pebble was at Google IO this week. We used the opportunity to start the conversation with developers around our Android APIs. If you're interested, you can learn more at developer.getpebble.com. This is just the beginning of our developer outreach, we'll be releasing other sections of our SDK over the coming months.
