about this episode

Among the many companies at LAUNCH Mobile & Wearables, Pebble and Misfit Wearables are pushing the wearables market to new places. Pebble took the possibilities of crowdfunding to new extremes, raising $10m on Kickstarter. Cofounder and CEO Eric Migicovsky shows us the new features and possibilities, as heavyweights Apple and Samsung see the possibilities, and are trying their own smart watches. Misfit Wearables, meanwhile has design on lock. Its tiny, sleek tracker looks like a necklace or lapel decoration. And it was an accident on the road to another product, which CEO Sonny Vu hints at in his interview with Jason.
