Stevenage-based Widget UK Ltd, which distributes several brands including TomTom, will supply Pebble smartwatches to retailers in the two territories through associate company, Eindhoven-based Now Mobile BV.
David Elder, managing director of Widget, said: “Not only has Pebble had a fantastic reception from our retail customers, it will also fit into the range of wearable technology products which we distribute.”
The Kickstarter launched smartwatch brand, which is still the crowdfunding website’s most successful campaign ever, offers Pebble (RRP £99.99) and Pebble Steel (RRP £179.99)models, compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones.
Kristen Regelein, head of global sales at Pebble, added: “Pebble’s been growing tremendously this past year, and we’re delighted to be expanding our retail partnerships into the UK and Benelux with Widget. Our mission’s always been to make technology more accessible, and today’s announcement takes Pebble one step closer to fulfilling this vision."
