Pebble sold 400,000 smartwatches last year, looks to double-up for 2014
If you were curious just how many Pebble smartwatches were sold in 2013, wonder no more. Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky told Fortune that Pebble has sold over 400,000 units since January 2013, pinning their revenue somewhere around $60 million — not such a bad year.
With Android Wear announced earlier this week, a lot of eyes are on new devices like the Moto 360 and LG's G Watch. Migicovsky isn't worried though, and rightfully so. One analyst puts Pebble's numbers over double that for 2014.
"When we started working on wearables six years ago, there were few players in the space and a lot of skeptics," says Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky of Google's news. "It's exciting to see this market grow so quickly -- enabling more interesting use cases and keeping all of us laser-focused on creating the very best user experiences we can."
It will be tough for Pebble to keep up with the certain onslaught of Android Wear devices that are due to come out later this year, so we'll be watching closely to see just what comes out of Pebble in 2014.
