There is a bubble in the tech world and Pebble is to blame. With Pebble's unprecedented successful Kickstarter campaign last year ( a record 10 Million raised), a gaggle of other entrepreneurs have decided to deep dive into the Smart Watch pool. 

 

Following Pebble's steps, most new smart watch launches (remarkably) have successfully raised funding on crowdsourcing platforms. Whether these products will be a one hit wonder or grow to become an economically viable and sustainable company will highly be determined by: (1) If they can deliver the full promise of their product on time earning the trust of their initial investors (all thousand of them). (2) If they can continue to dream up and deliver new products and services that are truly more exciting than current offerings, especially once the big players  Apple, Samsung and Google cannonball into the pool. 

 

Below are a few products that have successfully been funded. Which do you think will survive?
