Can a wristwatch help any organization in raising funds? Yes, it can. Pebble Smartwatch is such a wristwatch that has raised more than US $10 million on Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform. The watch can connect wirelessly to a smartphone and alerts the user whenever a text message is received.
Success of the project
The project, which is the most-financed project of Kickstarter in its history, has managed to attract 85,000 buyers and raise US $10.3 million as funds. The project has been so success that the founders have decided to stop the fund-raising.
From where to buy Pebble smartwatch?
The company has decided to sell the watches through an online shop. But their first priority will be getting the first shipment of watches to their fans who financed the creation of the device through Kickstarter.
