Pebble, the innovative kickstarter smartwatch company, have sold out... sorry, been acquired by... Fitbit.
"Pebble is ceasing all hardware operations. We are no longer manufacturing, promoting, or selling any new products."
Bad news for anyone wanting to buy one... or anyone who had backed their PebbleTime2 Kickstarter project.
"Active Pebble models in the wild will continue to work."
Well that's good news...
"Functionality or service quality may be reduced down the road. We don’t expect to release regular software updates or new Pebble features."
Oh great. Well that's a waste of my £150 for the PTS then!
Oh and... "Any Pebble currently out in the wild is no longer covered by or eligible for warranty exchange." WTF??!!
