Will Best Buy Start Selling The Pebble Smart Watch This Weekend?

Update: Yes, they will. Read on. Best Buy stores in the United States could start selling the Pebble smart watch as soon as this weekend, according to two separate retail employees. More specifically, Best Buy's internal inventory system (pictured above) notes that the impressive smart watch will be "in stock" from this Sunday, July 7, 2013. The news comes from 9to5Mac, who explains that the July 7 date could mean that Best Buy will be receiving stock on Sunday. If this is the case, the retailer won't be offering the smart watch to customers until a few days later. That being said, the website also notes that two Best Buy employees have confirmed that Pebble will be available to purchase "this weekend," in certain Best Buy stores. Either way, it would appear that the Kickstarter-funded smart watch, for which online customers must wait several months in a preorder queue, will rather be available to pick up in person from Best Buy in the near future. It should also be noted that Best Buy's inventory suggests that home delivery will not be an option for Pebble, meaning customers will have to seek out the smart watch in-store.
