No.2: The Pebble E-Paper Smartwatch
Funds Raised: $10.3 Million

The Pebble E-Paper Watch is a smartwatch developed by Pebble Technology Corporation, which was funded via Kickstarted and released in 2013. Pebble founder Eric Migicovsky was hoping to raise $100,000. Instead, his Kickstarter campaign, which ran from April to May of last year, generated more than $10 million from almost 69,000 backers. In fact, the Pebble smartwatch raised $10.3 million in 37 days on Kickstarter, making it the most successful product funded through that company up until then. Backers jumped at the chance to be one the first to own a Pebble watch. While some investors were upset about not receiving the product in a timely fashion, the Pebble is now sold directly in retail stores. When Best Buy began selling Pebble smartwatches in July 2013, they sold out within five days. AT&T also sells the Pebble.
