Initially, the company planned on making 1,000 watches and shipping them to backers, but now with 85,000 Pebble watches that have to be manufactured, backers will have to wait a bit more to get their device.
The guys behind Pebble say that the watches will be delayed but hope that scaling the production will not take too long.
“While we won’t be able to start shipping Pebbles in September, our current schedule has us on track to go from manufacturing zero to 15,000 Pebbles per week as soon as possible,” the Pebble team explained.
If you want the good news, though, it’s that Pebble is getting another color. Backers voted for the orange version along with the standard black, white and red. Right now, the watch is in the Engineering Verification phase.
