The Pebble shattered all sorts of records on fundraising site Kickstarter recently, but now the snazzy-looking e-paper smartwatch's makers have declared that it's sold out for the time being.
Don't worry though — you'll still have a chance to order a Pebble once it's officially on the market.
In case you somehow managed to miss — or ignore — any news about Pebble, it's basically a companion device. The Pebble connects to your iPhone or Android smartphone using Bluetooth and alerts you of incoming calls, emails, messages and so on.
Pebble can also use third-party apps to serve as a bike computer, golf rangefinder and more. It even already has an app in the bag, thanks to the folks behind RunKeeper, a company that makes fitness tracking apps.
As with most Kickstarter projects, many of the folks pledging to support the Pebble are essentially pre-ordering the device. Now, since the project was ridiculously popular, the smartwatch's makers decided to cap those pre-orders at 85,000 units.
Well, at this point all 85,000 of those units have already been claimed.
Since there's still about a week left on the Kickstarter project though, folks are still able to pledge $1 to the Pebble if they'd like. (In exchange, they'll receive "exclusive updates, Pebble availability or more.")
Oh, and even if not a single person chooses to donate any more to the Pebble, the Kickstarter project has already raised more than $10 million. ($10,173,450 as of the time of this post, to be specific.) Not too shabby for a project that aimed to raise $100,000!
