Pebble just broke Kickstarter records with $20 million in funding

Pebble has been the king of Kickstarter for quite some time now and its latest crowd-funded device, the Pebble Time, has only further solidified that position. The successor to Pebble’s popular smartwatch is by far the most popular Kickstarter project of all time with more than $20 million in funding gathered.

There’s no doubt that the Pebble Time’s Kickstarter campaign has been a massive success — and now the device has crossed the $20 million funding mark with just under 24 hours left to go. Pebble Time already crossed the threshold and became the most funded campaign in Kickstarter history a week after its launch, and followed that milestone up with the announcement of a luxury steel version of the upcoming smartwatch. The Pebble Time adds to the original Pebble smartwatch with a color display, a “smartstrap” that can connect to third-party devices, and an updated design. If you’ve been on the fence until now, you still have just under 24 hours to head over to Kickstarter via the source link below and contribute. And if you decide to contribute now, you’ll also score either version at a slight discount over the retail price. The standard Pebble Time goes for $179 ($199 retail), while Pebble Time Steel will run you $250 ($299 retail).
