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.

I hope they can continue to compete when the big players come in this summer...LG, Motorola, etc., but they need to pull out something spectacular.

I think they will be competitive. I think the revenue that pebble has made up to now will amount to innovation in the long term.

They're going to need to adapt FAST, with new products this year. The current Pebbles will be slaughtered by Android Wear and devices like the Moto 360. In their current form, Pebble watches are finished this year. Migicovsky should be VERY worried, not to mention something called the iWatch...

Do you really think they will get slaughtered? We know so little about the new devices. I'm have been holding out on buying a pebble to see what comes, but I'm not sure that Google Now is a better offering that the pebble store. This year I will buy a smart watch, but I'm still unsure of which one.

For pebble to survive they have to get a handle on the production should not take months for delivery. They are so back ordered at a time they need to address the competition. Not good
