Allerta Pre-Sells 85,000 Pebble Smartwatches as Legendary Kickstarter Campaign Closes

Pebble’s legendary Kickstarter campaign has come to an end. Final numbers: the company raised a staggering $10,168,645 from 66,613 backers. In total, Allerta has pre-sold 85,000 Pebbles. And all of this from an original goal of just $100,000.

Tripling the previous record for the most money ever raised from a Kickstarter campaign, this Canadian-born company has made history. It will surely be highlighted in the future as a gold standard for crowdfunding success around the world (the average campaign raises less than $700).
