Pebble was one of the very first key players in the wearables market and it’s refreshing to see the company is still going strong. The company’s first Smartwatch went on sale in July 2013 and has seen great results ever since. The Pebble Smartwatch is revolutionary product that supports multiplatform usage unlike other smartwatches in the market that only support a specific mobile OS platform.
This strategy by the company is probably what helped the company sell 400.000 smartwatches so far. These figures were revealed by the company’s CEO Eric Migicovsky in an interview with CNN. The CEO also took the opportunity to comment on Android Wear saying, “We’re excited about today’s news from our friends at Google. When we started working on wearables six years ago, there were few players in the space and a lot of skeptics. It’s exciting to see this market grow so quickly — enabling more interesting use cases and keeping all of us laser-focused on creating the very best user experiences we can.”
Pebble has seen tremendous growth in the past year and the company expects to double its revenue this year. With over 1000 apps in its app store, there is no stopping this new start up. Even with competition from other market players (Samsung with the Gear 2), Pebble will still maintain its steady growth for years to come.
