Pebble Smart Watch for iPhone and Android raised $3.4 million on Kickstarter

Who needs venture capital? Nobody, if you can convince the crowd to fund your company and buy your product before it is on the market. The Pebble smartphone companion watch just broke the funding record on kickstarter and is now at $3,39 million from 23,710 backers. The initial goal was just $100,000. 

The guys behind the Pebble have already made smart watches and that seems to be a big factor for backers that there is a track record of making a working product.

The Pebble watch can be customized with apps and connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. There is already a developer SDK to create apps for the Pebble. The apps are the really cool aspect of Pebble.

Pebble runs on an ARM CPU and the battery lasts for 7 days. 

Overall Pebble seems to be the first real useful smart watch. Watch the demo video for Pebble below and you can back the Pebble on Kickstarter here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
