The Pebble Smart Watch for Android and iOS that raised millions of dollars on Kickstarter and then went through a drawn-out release process will soon be available in Best Buy. Pebble has just announced that it Best Buy locations in the U.S. will begin selling the Jet Black color options for Pebble beginning Sunday, July 7, and Cherry Red beginning in August.
The deal will "help satisfy high demand," according to Pebble creators, a peculiar claim considering that the company still has thousands of pre-orders and Kickstarter backers yet to receive their promised watch. Some people who pre-ordered the watch are predictably lodging complaints about the long delay and Best Buy buyers being able to buy a phone before all pre-orders have been filled. Customers who pre-ordered Pebble can get more information about how to cancel their order and pickup a watch at Best Buy here.source: BestBuy.com, via: Pebble (Twitter)
