Seven hours in and all of us here at Pebble HQ are absolutely stunned by the enthusiasm you've had for Pebble Time. We had hoped you'd like what we've been working on...but you never know for sure until you launch! The good news is that you've made it crystal clear. And we thank you immensely for this.
You've shown your support on Kickstarter, but also all over the web:
Overall, we're pumped. We've got a fantastic month of news lined up for you, lots of cool surprises about Pebble Time and exciting updates. Stay tuned!
Good news for those who haven't backed yet: we've decided to increase the number of Pebble Time watches available to start shipping in May, after close consultation with our manufacturing team. We're going to change the May $179 reward tier to 30,000 units. After that runs out, we'll be opening up a new reward tier with a June ship date.
Quite simply, we could not have done it without your support. We value each and every single tweet, Facebook post and Instagram shot about Pebble Time. Keep it up!
Other news: the team and I will be hosting a Reddit Ask Me Anything tomorrow, Wednesday Feb 25 at 12 noon PST. Looking forward to answering all the burning questions you've got about Pebble Time!
Finally, I'll leave you with this:
