Pebble, the Kickstarter-Funded Smart Watch, Comes to Best Buy

Pebble, the E-ink “smart” watch that started shipping back in February, is finally coming to retail stores. The $150 watch will be sold at Best Buy stores starting on July 7. The exclusive partnership is Pebble’s first retail launch of the device, after raising more than $10.2 million on Kickstarter last year (previously, the Pebble could be ordered through the company’s own website). The watch, which connects with iOS and Android smartphones via Bluetooth to alert the wearer to app activity, will be available in jet black and cherry red.
