Pebble Time's U.S. pre-orders start June 22nd as a Best Buy exclusive
Those who helped Pebble raise a Kickstarter record $20 million for the new Pebble Time watch have started receiving their new timepiece. But what about those who want the new Pebble Time but didn't pledge any money? As we told you last month, pre-orders for the new-generation of Pebble's smartwatch start on June 22nd. And on Friday, the company announced that in the states, pre-orders will be an exclusive to Best Buy.

Suppose you don't live in the U.S., but are dying to have a Pebble Time on your wrist? Well, you could move. But if that's not a viable option, you can go to Pebble.com starting on June 22nd. Pre-orders are for the plastic version of the watch. If you're interested in the Pebble Time Steel, the version of the smartwatch made with a stainless steel build, you can leave your email address and be notified when that premium model of the device is ready to be pre-ordered.

The Pebble Time watch brings a color screen, the ability to store as many apps as will fit (as opposed to eight apps maximum on the old model), seven day battery life (ten day with Pebble Time Steel) and more. Both Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel feature a 1.25-inch color e-paper display and are water resistant to 98.4 feet. They both come with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and pair with both iOS and Android phones.

Pricing has not yet been announced. We should see Pebble reveal the cost of purchasing its new timepiece no later than June 22nd when Best Buy starts taking pre-orders in the U.S.
