Pebble Account website
In order to keep track of every single backer's shipping information and color selection, we created a Pebble Account site. An invitation has been sent to the same email address that you used on Kickstarter when you backed Pebble. You can find the email in your inbox by searching for an email
Subject: Your Pebble Order - Enter shipping info and color selection
Inside that email there is a special link that invites you to create a new password for your Pebble Account. If you can't find that email in your inbox, check your spam filter as message may be misclassified. If you can't find it, make sure that firstname.lastname@example.org is on your safe-email list and then request a password reset here.
Using the Pebble Account website, you can choose your Pebble's color, enter your current shipping address and pay any shipping fees that were not included in your pledge on Kickstarter. You have until Sept 30, 2012 to select which color you'd like. As for your shipping address, please enter your current address into the system. You can return to account.getpebble.com at any time before your Pebble ships and change your address if you move.

Tidbits from around the Pebble world
- Shipping test has been working out well. We sent 120 test shipments to a few backers around the world to test our logistics provider and optimize the process to ensure that packages arrive safely, quickly and with as few fees as possible to our backers.
- Backers, you've been asking about the backlight! We'll post a video on our social media accounts (twitter/Facebook/Vimeo) showing it off fairly soon
- Andrew is in Taiwan right now working on our production test plan (among other things). Here are the latest pics
- Here's a short video of a pug-based screen saver/graphics test on a pre-production Pebble. This is NOT the real strap, just a random sample I had on-hand.
As usual, we'll continue posting small updates in between our Kickstarter Updates on Twitter.com/pebble, Facebook.com/getpebble, Pinterest.com/getpebble and responding to questions on the Pebble Forum.
Thanks again for backing us, Pebblers!
