Pebble has made available its entire range of smartwatches in the Indian market. Pebble has been a pioneer with wearables and has a wide range of smartwatches which compete with the likes of Apple Watch, Samsung Gear S2, Huawei Watch, Moto 360 and others. Pebble watches were already available in regions like UK, USA but now they are going to sell directly in India via Amazon with prices starting at Rs.5999/-
IDC predicts that 110 million wearable devices (mainly smartwatches, fitness-bands) will be shipped in 2016 which will be a 38% rise from the last year. With many global markets like USA, China heading towards saturation, India is getting all the attentions from the tech-world recently.
Eric Migicovsky, Founder & CEO, Pebble says:
We are extremely excited to introduce Pebble in India. Indian users have always been open to adopt new technologies especially in mobile. Hence, we see a promising future for Pebble in India. Our unique products offer amazing experience at an affordable price point to the users. In conjunction with our India launch, we are also looking at establishing a connected community of users and developers in India. To reach out to users across regions we have partnered with Amazon.in for exclusive distribution of our watches.
Xiaomi has already nabbed the top position in the wearable market in India with its affordable yet great Mi Band. Pebble wants to capture the yet unsaturated Indian wearable market with its smartwatches by making them available at affordable price points and that shows in the above statement from the CEO of Pebble. Pebble has also updated their watches with Pebble Health which enables non-stop activity tracking and sleep monitoring in all Pebble smartwatches. Pebble Health is also compatible with Google Fit and Apple Health Kit.
