Pebble Smartwatch ‘Coming Soon’ To Best Buy


With so much success on Kickstarter, the Pebble smartwatch hasn’t been easy to get hold of if you weren’t an early backer. But you’ll soon be able to pick one up at Best Buy. The retailer just added the device to its website with a $150 price tag, though it doesn’t yet have a release date.

According to Best Buy’s website, the red Pebble is “coming soon,” but there’s no sign of the white or black models just yet. The listing only just went up, however, so it’s possible these will appear before the Pebble is available to order.

The Pebble first began shipping to almost 69,000 Kickstarter backers back in January, but due to supply issues, early shipment batches were said to include just 500 units.

By May, however, more than 70,000 Pebbles had been shipped, and the Pebble SDK was released to allow third-party developers to support the device. The device was also made available to order for those who didn’t back the project on Kickstarter.

Getting hold of a Pebble still hasn’t been easy, though. You can pre-order one through the Pebble website, and it’ll arrive something this summer. Presumably, this is when the device will also be available through Best Buy.
