They sending out the first batch to the very first backers now.
They state that “there are still some kinks and issues that they need to work out.”
Mass production has started at the factory. 800-1,000 Pebbles are coming out per day with There is a 5-7 day lag between a Pebble coming off the assembly line, and arriving in a fulfillment center for shipping
According to their Note…
- Pebble iOS App is not yet available in the App Store.
- Android app will go live on Google Play on Thursday Jan 24
- We weren’t able to get as many units to our fulfillment centre as we expected (held up by documentation at the airport). Less than 500 units are going out today, with more expected to ship soon.
- We accidentally more Address Confirmations emails than available Pebbles. So some people who received address confirmation emails will not get a tracking number for a few days until their Pebble ships out.
Proof of production
Finished product, all boxed up and ready to be placed in shipping cartons.
- As of today, the factory is manufacturing roughly 800-1,000 Pebbles per day. We’re working hard to get this up to our full capacity (2.4k per day)
- We are shipping master cartons of Pebbles by air freight across the Pacific to our US distribution center 1-2 times per week, and 1-2 times per week to our Hong Kong distribution center which fulfills shipments to any country that isn’t the US. There is a 5-7 day lag between a Pebble coming off the assembly line, and it arriving in a fulfillment center for shipping.
- Right now, we’re manufacturing in large batches of 1 colour at a time. Since black was by far the most popular colour, we started with a run of black Pebbles. I realize that this is different than what I said before…while we would have liked to be able to ship out all the colours at the exact same time, it’s proven to be impossible. We’re doing our best to match production of other colors as soon as possible.
They clearly also state that their job is not finished, and have lots of improvements to make, and tens of thousands of Pebbles to ship out. They will continue biweekly updates, and as software updates with new features for Pebble every 2-3 weeks.
