Pebble, which smashed all Kickstarter funding records, reached $10 million and 85,000 units pre-ordered, causing founder Eric Migicovsky to shut down the funding process earlier than its May 18th end date.
Migicovsky also announced that the company has had to double its team from five employees to ten.
The Pebble is compatible with iOS and Android and has a 1.26-inch 144 x 168-pixel black and white ePaper display with a backlight. The device syncs to your phone or tablet via Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and the company just added support for Bluetooth 4.0 via a future firmware update.
Additionally, the watch has a three-axis accelerometer, a vibrating motor and four control buttons for volume and more.
