If you were one of the eager Kickstarter backers that pledge a donation for the Pebble smartwatch, you could be in for disappointment. According to the company, production for the smartwatch has been delayed and they do not expect to be able to start shipping the Pebble watches in September as they had previously expected. In a statement they released:
“In terms of our schedule, we’re sticking pretty closely to an aggressive timetable we put together at the end of May. While we won’t be able to start shipping Pebbles in September, our current schedule has us on track to go from manufacturing zero to 15,000 Pebbles per week as soon as possible.”
No word on when we can expect the watches to start shipping, but with pre-production units currently being tested, hopefully it won’t be too long before the watches make their way into the hands onto the wrists of customers!
