Kickstarter's most funded project Pebble smartwatch gets an interface demo, no release date yet
Kickstarter has turned out to be the preferred platform for launching experimental projects and actually getting them funded, and the Pebble e-paper smartwatch is a perfect illustration. It's a smartwatch that broke all Kickstarter records by raising over $10 million dollars from more than 68,000 backers, and now they all get to see an interface demo of the Pebble.

Everything looks smooth and very intuitive – you can play music, check out your emails, get notifications and that's great, but what's not so great is the fact that the Pebble team still hasn't provided a release date. Originally, the Pebble smartwatch was expected to come this September, but then it turned out it'd get delayed, so right now there is no clarity on the actual release schedule.



So there you have it – an interface video below, and more time to wait. Hopefully, it would be worth it.

It's a matter of preference but this watch is made of e-ink so it can stay with the screen on for days without draining the battery. Also it is made water resistant... other than that, for 15$ Sony's smart watch is a steal
