Pebble Time discount

After being introduced back in February and a Round version being unveiled in September, the original Pebble Time is already on sale. This comes at an interesting time, as the typical holiday shopping season won’t start for about three weeks.

On Pebble’s website, you can get the original edition of the Pebble Time for just $149.99 for a limited time, down 25% from its usual $199.99 price. If you’ve been looking to get a smartwatch and are wanting to test the waters, this is a pretty good offer. However, there is something interesting about the timing of the deal.

When the Pebble Time was launched Kickstarter, it was a massive success, earning over $20 million. Before the device shipped however, some rumors were appearing that Pebble was having some financial trouble despite the success of their crowdfunding campaign. When it came time to ship the device, the iOS app was a little delayed, causing confusion for some customers.

With the rumors of financial trouble and a deal appearing before the usual holiday shopping season begins, you have to wonder what is happening to Pebble. While they are most likely responsible for smartwatches beginning to come to market, including Apple’s, it’s curious to see where their place in the market is with other manufacturers, especially now that Android Wear watches have been working with iOS since August.

That being said, this is a great deal on a Pebble Time if you’ve been looking to pick one up. Just head over to Amazon or Pebble’s website and you can purchase one for yourself. What do you think the reason is for this early sale?

    Wow I feel bad. I just sold my Pebble Time on Craigslist for $140 last night.

    • You should actually feel good about it. That’s the guy who bought it from you who should feel bad

    I wouldn’t buy it. Don’t know how much longer they’ll be around for.

  • MrJohnBlaze

    the design is ugly as hell and materials used

    • That_Fruitarian

      Looks like k-mart designed it.

    As an owner of one of these, I HIGHLY recommend it for teenagers like myself. It’s a really nice device, without the crazy cost of an Apple Watch or Android Wear. The 7 day battery life is amazing, it’s a great watch, and the convenience of getting notifications on your wrist is awesome. Plus, the community on Reddit is really nice and helpful. I’d be glad to answer questions if anyone has any.

    I think it’s a great product but there is really no point for iOS user to buy these… better save some more money and get apple watch and do so much more with it. Sold my Pebble ages ago.

    • Niclas

      Sure, AW can do more but when it’s dead it can’t do much.
      I’d recommend the Pebble all day long for anyone, they are great. The small notifications are the most important aspects of smart watches. Basically everything else is better and faster on the iphone.

  • AwkwardApple

    Has anyone tried out the new round design watches?

  • Fanboy 

    Ouch, the sales number must not be good. I know personally for me they messed up by releasing so close to the Apple Watch. Had they released months before I would have purchased one before getting the Apple Watch as well. Now I have 0 interest in ever purchasing a Pebble ever again.

      Or the components has come down in price…

      The pebble steel is still the best smart watch I’ve used. The AW sits on my wrist and the 2nd hand market price for it is crazy low.
