The Kickstarter-backed Pebble smartwatch was originally scheduled to ship out to customers in September. The device, which can display and interact with apps on Android and iPhone smartphones, raised more than $10 million and received an overwhelming number of pre-orders, forcing the company to stray away from its originally planned schedule. At the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday, CEO Eric Migicovsky announced that the first batch of Pebble smartwatches will be shipped on January 23rd to its more than 65,000 Kickstarter backers. The company expects to have Pebble in the hands of all backers within 6 to 8 weeks. Migicovsky also revealed that the team has added a variety of goodies to the watch, such as a magnetometer and ambient light sensor.
