Pebble is off to a solid start, if the over 400,000 smartwatches it sold in 2013 is any indication. Unofficial estimates put revenues earned at an impressive $60 million, something that is expected to double by the end of the year.
One of the factors leading tothe success of Pebble is the robust development team comprised of 1,200 developers who continue to make and refine apps. Currently there are around 1,000 apps available for Android and iOS.
Pebble might have their work cut out for them to really shine in the wearables market. Google recently launched Android Wear, a version of Android dedicated for smart watches. The launch of the new Google SDK is showing up already in the new LG G Watch and nifty Moto 360, which has turned a few heads with its visual aesthetics.
