The Apple Watch is going to be available in stores soon, but Apple’s smartwatch is not the only such product you can buy, as plenty of companies are also selling high-tech watches. Popular smartwatch maker Pebble a few days ago launched a new Kickstarter campaign for the Pebble Time device that will directly compete against the Apple Watch and other similar products.
