The original version of the series are considered the first mass smart watch of new generation. Pebble products are favorites of the audience (though they have market shares of competitors) and still appear right choice for some buyers.
In March 2014. The statistics speak for realization of 400,000 units of production of the Pebble. Almost a year later CEO Eric Migicovsky (we could not transliterate Cyrillic) has boasted that the 1 million delivered to market units was passed at the end of 2014. The achievement of Pebble becomes even more impressive, because it is based on only 2 models (the Pebble and the Pebble Steel’s) with identical hardware but are enjoyed exclusively developed ecosystem of functional operating system Pebble OS and more than 6000 applications (and those of the screen). The company plans to maintain these successes in the current year, offering new models and innovations in platform (Pebble OS). While CEO-it of Pebble has not shared the details, it is clear that working on a new way of vzaimodestvie with smart clock (translation of quote is something like “nothing like this has ever used in smart watches”).
