Less than one week after its reveal, Pebble Time is now the most funded project ever on Kickstarter.

The new smartwatch announced by startup Pebble has netted close to $14 million, and will remain open to accept additional funds for the next 24 days. Pebble Time bumps The Coolest Cooler, which had held the previous record of $13.3 million.

Pebble Time includes a color e-paper screen and built-in microphone for short voice messages. Pebble announced Tuesday it is also adding smart watchstraps with sensors developers can leverage for additional features. The Kickstarter models were available for $159, while retail versions will go for $199 when they arrive in May.
