Pebble has been shipping from its own website since February. It features a 144 x 168 “memory LCD” screen, a vibration motor, light sensors and a 3 axis accelerometer. The watch is also totally waterproof.

Whilst Apple’s own “iWatch” rumors have curtailed somewhat in recent weeks, Pebble’s move to big-time retail shows a real belief that the smart watch market is a viable business initiative with a growing and eager consumer base.

Pebble is available from Best Buy on July 7, will any of you be picking it up?
