Pebble has sold over 400,000 smartwatches


Android Wear may be dominating smartwatch news at the moment, but Pebble isn't letting Google take all the thunder. The company has revealed that it's sold a total of 400,000 watches since it started fulfilling the first of its 85,000 Kickstarter pre-orders. CEO Eric Migicovsky revealed the number to CNN Money in a recent interview, and a representative tells The Verge that the number includes its original 85,000 Kickstarter pre-orders and sales of its critically acclaimed Pebble Steel smartwatch. It's an impressive statistic for the company the started as a Kickstarter sensation. But the company made a name for itself with one of the first attractive, simple-to-use smartwatches around. Now that Google has thrown its weight behind its own smartwatch effort, it'll be up to Pebble to hold onto its head start.

Update: This article has been modified with additional details on the 400,000 figure from a Pebble representative.
