The famous Pebble e-paper smartwatch (started from Kickstarter) has finally arrived in Singapore officially. Not only that, they have created Limited Edition L Collection (800 pieces worldwide) and you can own a piece of it in Singapore.
They have already created a pebble.sg Club where owners can interact. By joining the club, Pebble owners can get exclusive offers in Singapore. BTW, Pebble and Pebble L Collection will be available from 26 May, 2014 onwards at a recommended retail price of S$249 and S$279 respectively. What I think is missing is the steel series.

Famed Kickstarter Pebble E-Paper Launches In Singapore
Leader Radio Technologies, sole distributer of Pebble in Singapore, also launches pebble.sg, an exclusive club for Pebblers
Singapore, May 26, 2014 – Leader Radio Technologies (LRT) announces the launch of Pebble E-Paper, the acclaimed Kickstarter campaign which turned heads (and wrists) worldwide. Built with an e-paper display – which allows reading in direct sunlight – and other customisable features, Pebble is the ideal smartwatch for urban dwellers and tech geeks alike.
Compatible with iOS, iOS7 notification and Android devices, Pebble connects via Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) and can receive alerts from text messages, emails, incoming calls and social media notifications. The smartwatch is protected with a polycarbonate casing, preventing scratches, and has a 1.26 inch screen display with 144×168 pixels and LED backlight. Pebble can also run for 5-7 days on a full charge and is water resistant (up to 5 ATM), allowing users to bring their Pebble along for runs, swims and all other kinds of exercise.
Software development enthusiasts can also join in the growth of the smartwatch and its many apps by downloading the Pebble Software Development Kit (SDK). With this, users can programme custom watchfaces and build apps which take advantage of Pebble’s many built in functions, including the accelerometer, magnetometer and ambient light sensors. Pebblers can view the full range of apps available by downloading the Pebble app for iOS and Android.
Adding a touch of style to this revolutionary piece of tech, Pebble introduces the L Collection, a limited edition range with only 800 units produced worldwide. Featuring a polished white exterior accompanied with interchangeable genuine cowhide leather straps in Aspen White and Midnight Black, the L Collection will be exclusively sold at selected EpiCentre and EpiLife stores from 26 May – 26 June, 2014.
In conjunction with the retail availability, LRT is also introducing pebble.sg, an exclusive club for Pebble owners in Singapore. Designed as a platform for passionate fans to discuss all things Pebble, the club also provides members with access to yearly Pebble events, discounts on Pebble accessories and a whole suite of after sales services.
Members enjoy these exclusive benefits:
Invitation to 2 pebble.sg yearly events
20% off tailor-made leather straps at 310
