Pebble to officially be sold at Best Buy starting July 7th
Last night, we heard a rumor that Pebble was trying to put together a deal which would have its smart watch sold in Best Buy stores, and today we're finding out that story was accurate and the deal has been completed. Pebble has officially signed up with Best Buy so its smart watch will be exclusively sold in Best Buy stores around the country.

The Pebble smart watch is already available through Best Buy's website for $149.99, and according to the announcement, you will be able to purchase the Pebble in Best Buy stores on July 7th for the same price. At first, Jet Black will be the only color option, but Cherry Red will show up sometime in August.

This annoys me because I backed Pebble on Kickstarter and me, along with quite a few other people, haven't received our Pebbles yet. Black and red are the only colors that have been shipped out. There are still 3 other colors that need to be produced. They really need to get that done before they start selling them to non backers

I'd buy one... if it wasn't USB. Waterproof designs have to rely on other things to remain waterproof even if the user isn't that smart or always forgets to seal everything back in order to swim... Is the Sony Smartwatch 2 wireless charge compatible?

Zennacko, what are you talking about? The Pebble IS WATERPROOF without any sealing or doors that need to be closed. It's charging connection is a magnetic contact point similar to that of the Mac Books.

I saw some USB connectivity on best buy's page... if it does have one, it needs to be sealed to work underwater.

I just found out the pebble smart watch works with Blackberries OS 10 so I don't know why they claim on they're website that it's only Apple and Android compatible on a lighter not I've never been a big fan of smart watches since the battery life was terrible for most of them but I'ma jump on board. I like the idea of going a whole week with out charging the watch and that it's water proof, keep in kind you can go swimming with it or take a shower but not scuba diving.
