The crowdfunded watch, Pebble, which became a darling of Kickstarter success stories, may be facing serious financial problems, despite raising a staggering $20 million on the site. Sources say that the company is getting a bit too big and can’t support the success. It has supposedly took out a $5 million loan with an additional $5 million of credit.
Right now, Pebble has 150 employees and is still growing, and its newest smartwatch sports a colour screen and 7-day battery life. This new wearable is by far the top-funded project in the site’s history. But now the company is turning to VC money to keep up with its own monster growth, according to rumours. [TechCrunch]
