'Pebble' smartwatch raises $2 million The extremely popular Kickstarter project "Pebble" has raised $2 million in under 72 hours.
Pebble is a smartwatch that syncs with iOS and Android via Bluetooth, including the addition of apps.

The company only hoped to raise $100,000 before May, and the project has clearly exceeded expectations.

200 lucky backers were able to pledge just $99 to get the device, while everyone else will need to pay $115 or more to have the device. The watch will eventually retail for over $150.

There are currently over 14,200 backers of the project.
