Großkartonage in der Pebble Fabrik
Pebble Versand hat begonnen! Am Nachmittag des 23.01.2013 wurden die ersten Pebble in Richtung Bakers versandt. Trotz kleiner Problemchen läuft alle relativ reibungslos.
To track our shipping progress, we’ve made a (light-heartedly named) website: www.ispebbleshipping.com
We’re also working on adding shipment tracking to account.getpebble.com. Please do not email us right now about shipment tracking, we will not be able to provide any information over email about the status of your Pebble. As soon as this functionality is finished, we’ll post an update and you’ll be able to check online. Sorry for the delay on this.
As we mentioned during the last announcement, mass production has started at the factory. It’s awesome to walk along the assembly line and see thousands of Pebble components in various states of readiness. It’s going to take some time before we reach our maximum capacity, but we’re getting there.

We have more than 1,000 glue jigs on the production line.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
Ah a beautiful sight…finished product, all boxed up and ready to be placed in 60-Pebble master shipping cartons.

During the press conference, thousands of people tweeted with the hashtag #pebbletime and posted questions on Facebook and Reddit. The winner of the Clear Pebble contest is Luke K. (from Facebook) for asking a great question: „What is the most interesting/unique idea for the use of a pebble that you have heard to date?“
I had a pretty poor response at the time, so I wanted to follow up. There was a thread on our forums.getpebble.com recently about how to use Pebble to, ahem…creatively bend school rules during exams. Definitely one of the most unique Pebble use cases!
Runner up’s for the contest will receive t-shirts and some other swag: @flashpunk, Phoebe Furby Sturges (from Facebook), captbunzo (from Reddit). Winners, please send us a message via Kickstarter and we’ll get your gear sent out!
Our job is most definitely not finished, we have lots of improvements to make, and tens of thousands of Pebbles to ship out. We will continue our biweekly updates, and as was mentioned 2 weeks ago, we’ll be issuing software updates with new features for Pebble every 2-3 weeks.
Thanks for the support, everyone! Looking forward to hearing what you think of Pebble when it finally makes it onto your wrist.
