The Pebble Smart Watch is going to go even more mainstream as today it made its first retail debut–in the USA, at Best Buy. The watch retails for $149.99 and is available in black. It is being described as the following:
Control your Apple or Android device’s functions from your wrist with this Pebble 301BL smart watch, which features Bluetooth technology for easy pairing and an E-paper display that promotes visibility. The waterproof design ensures long-lasting use.
The Pebble Smart Watch made its original debut on Kickstarter, raising over $10 million dollars, led by its Canadian CEO Eric Migicovsky. According to the CEO, the exclusive retail expansion to Best Buy is a move to satisfy consumer demand.
