The jury is still not out on whether the smartwatch craze is here to stay for the long run or if its just a bubble that might burst in the near future. Samsung launched its smartwatch earlier this year and already there have been reports of poor sales. One of the poster childs of the smartwatch bandwagon is the Pebble, which was once a Kickstarter campaign that went on to receive over $10 million in donations from over 85,000 contributors, ultimately becoming the largest Kickstarter campaign. Pebble has been out for quite some time, but now it is finally available for purchase through Amazon.

Earlier this year it was announced that Pebble will be available from Best Buy as well. Adding more retailers would no doubt serves Pebble’s interests, as it looks to generate as many sales as it can. Currently only the red and black variants of Pebble are in stock on Amazon, which is offering the smartwatch for $148.99. Customers who want a broader range of color choices can purchase the smartwatch from Pebble’s website, where it is being sold for $150 in red, orange, black and white. A silver variant is listed as well but it appears to be out of stock as of now.
