It seems the leak nudged Pebble to unveil the Pebble Time on Tuesday with a Kickstarter campaign. The Pebble Time is exactly what we saw from the leak. The future smartwatch promises a color e-paper display, 7 hours of battery life, and more.
What's more interesting are the records the watch is setting on Kickstarter. Initially the team set out to hit a goal of $500,000. Within 20 minutes that goal was met. 34 minutes after launching, the campaign was at $1 million, then $2 million in under an hour.
At the time of this writing, the campaign is sitting around $6.5 million dollars, it's only been running a few hours. All of the information regarding the new watch can be found on the Kickstarter page, with the least expensive pledge goal tethered to receiving a Pebble Time being $179.
