Pebble Time preorders kick off ahead of retail launch

You don’t need to worry if you missed out on the Pebble Time Kickstarter campaign but still want the new wearable. As promised, the company is now accepting preorders for the Pebble Time through Best Buy, its exclusive retailer for the wearable’s launch.

Best Buy is selling the Pebble Time in three different colors, black, red or white, and is promising free shipping with each order. Store pickup is currently unavailable, but Best Buy promises that you should receive your new wearable in about a month, on July 20.

The Pebble Time is a promising smartwatch though it’s not as premium looking or feeling as the Apple Watch or some devices that run Android Wear. It does offer better battery life — the company promises up to 7 days depending on your usage — and there’s a huge pool of apps to choose from. You also still get a backlight, water resistance and a color display.

If the Apple Watch and Android Wear aren’t attractive and you want something different, the Pebble Time is probably one of the best alternatives. Hit the source to preorder yours now.
