Fitbit's purchase of Pebble will cancel Pebble Time 2 and Core orders

A few days ago, the almost confirmed news of the acquisition of Pebble by Fitbit jumped, for a figure close to 40 million dollars. Fitbit's main interest focuses not only on wearable management software, but also on the large number of patents that the company holds in its name. New rumors claim that as expected, Fitbit will cancel production of the new Pebble Time 2 and Core, two of the latest products Pebble has sought funding for on Kickstarteralthough the first units have already started to reach some users.

All orders that have not been processed so far will be canceled and the money will be returned to customers. The Pebble Time 2 gave us a device with a slightly larger screen than the original Pebble Time, which was a significant leap for the company, while the Core was an Android-powered device that integrated GPS for athletes without being a smartwatch.

Bloomberg, assures that until now, Fitibt has made job offers for 40% of the current workforceespecially engineers. Employees who do not receive any offers will receive their corresponding compensation while those who wish to continue working will have to relocate to San Francisco.

for now, and although it was initially announced that Fitbit would drop the Pebble brandit seems that now it is not so clear and Fitibt is likely to launch new models under this brand, a brand that has gained a very good reputation among users, which is very difficult to achieve today in such a short time time.

This latest fundraising campaign on Kickstarter reached raise just over $12 milliona record which has not yet been surpassed to date and which does not seem likely to be surpassed soon.
