Pebble’s new Kickstarter raises $1 million in record time
Pebble hit its latest Kickstarter goal in no time at all.
The smartwatch maker met its latest Kickstarter funding goal of $500,000 in just 33 minutes on Tuesday and topped the $1 million mark after 49 minutes, setting a new record.
The latest campaign is to launch its first major overhaul to the Pebble smartwatch, including a color e-paper display and better battery life.
Pebble's original smartwatch Kickstarter effort from 2012 brought in more than $10 million in funding, making it the second most successful campaign in Kickstarter history.
