    Worthless piece of junk now. Doesn't even rate as a boat anchor.
    Pebble, one of the best-known smartwatch brands, is dead. Rumors about the company’s demise have been swirling since The Information reported a potential Fitbit buyout last week. Today in a post on Kickstarter, Pebble confirmed that Fitbit was acquiring “key Pebble assets” and that Pebble would “no longer be operating as in independent company.”

      I went with the Geek Wave on Indiegogo sometime around Feb. of 2015 and supposed to ship around end Q1 of 2017... I'll believe it when it is in my hands, if ever. Two years to deliver a product? Companies like LH Labs (and Pebble above) make me really angry and caused me to lose faith in crowdfunding (which is a good concept).

          9 most disgraceful crowdunding failures of 2015. who will 2016's nominees be

          Donating to a crowdfunding campaign is risky. You hand money to internet strangers who give you nothing but a promise in return. Sometimes it pays off and you get an Oculus Rift. Other times, you get a colossal dud, or worse, a complete scam.

            I owned a pebble for a week or so. It did not do as I needed. I wanted a smart watch to see my texts and emails and who was calling. It did not do this well.
            My next move was a samsung smart watch it worked very well. As time went on so did my needs. Crowd funding is about a mass who needs it and wants it now. Ifi products are crowd sourced not funded. I love there approach to it.
            Chord electronics is crowd hyped lol a big machine behind each product release.
            Welcome to advertising and the hype that comes with it.
            a movie about it is the great white hype. A very funny movie that shows the points of pure marketing with not care of end result just like your pebble.
            analog stuff.
