Pebble Alert | Another delay for the e-ink smartwatch

Bad news for those waiting, or even worse for those who have already ordered one smartwatch Pebble Alert, an interesting project born on Kickstarter based on the idea of different smartwatch and minimal. The bad news is a delay, another to tell the truth, which goes to follow that of September and now will slip distribution to a period after Christmas 2012. An email sent by the Pebble team to supporters and donors assures that the product is “coming soon”, but without any indication of an arrival date which will be in 2013. The delay seems to be due to problems in the construction process that affects the entire first batch of watches which amounts to 85 thousand units.

The same technology that is placed in the e-readers and is very convenient and has a good outdoor readability without backlight. As usual, there are the typical smart functions that go to flank the modern smartphone with Android and iOS, with which it communicates via Bluetooth to provide information and notifications of messaging, calls, SMS and so on.
