Introducing iOS Text Reply to the Pebble Time Lineup (Release Notes)

iOS Text Reply

Text Reply on iOS sends messages directly via your carrier, replies do not appear in the Messages app.  

Pebble is excited to introduce Text Reply for iOS, a beta feature making us the first non-Apple smartwatch to bring voice and text replies to our iPhone users.

Starting today, Pebblers in the U.S. on a post-paid AT&T account can test drive iOS Text Reply using their Pebble Time, Time Steel, or Time Round. After setting things up, users can respond with a voice reply or pre-defined text to incoming items from the iOS Messages app.

Expanding voice capabilities to Pebblers with iPhones continues to be a big focus of ours. We are working to enable additional carriers and services to provide actionable notifications to more and more iPhone users. For full details about iOS Text Replies, review the FAQ below or on our Support page.

To get started with iOS Text Reply, follow these steps:

  1. Update your Pebble Time iPhone app to version 3.4 or higher.
  2. After updating the iPhone app, update your Pebble Time’s firmware to version 3.7 or higher. Select Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble if you aren’t prompted automatically.
  3. From the iOS app, navigate to Menu » Settings » Actionable Notifications to set up Text Replies for the first time.
  4. Follow the setup instructions.
  5. After successful setup, notifications received from the Messages app will have the option to reply with voice or a list of pre-defined responses.
  6. Note: Successfully sent Pebble replies will NOT appear in the iOS Messages app. The reply is sent as an SMS through AT&T directly, and not the Messages app.

Celebrating Women in Computing at Grace Hopper 2015

Below is a guest post by Erin Boehlert, a Computer Science student at UNC Chapel Hill. Pebble invited Erin to attend the 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Houston, TX and blog about her experience during the conference.

First of all, thank you to Pebble for sponsoring me and a few other women at UNC Chapel Hill to attend The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (#GHC15)! I wouldn’t have been able to go without it. This was my first time attending Grace Hopper, so I wanted to make the most of my experience. Here are some of the highlights from the event:

Metal Bands Ready

Metal Bands Are Ready to Rock

Adding a metal band is a great way to customize your Pebble and give it a dressier, more premium look and feel. Metal bands for Pebble Time Steel and Pebble Time Round are now available to order at

Pebble Time Metal Bands

Check out the Metal Bands »

These bands start shipping in about 6-8 weeks, after we finish sending metal bands to our Pebble Time Steel Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers.

The Pebble Time Round bands available include a mesh style for the 14mm models and a link style for the 20mm ones.

Pebble Time Round

Metal band options for Pebble Time Round

The Pebble Time Steel bands are a 22mm-wide link style and comes in three finishes: Gunmetal Black, Silver, and Gold. In addition to fitting Pebble Time Steel, these 22mm bands also fit great with Pebble Classic and Pebble Time.

View the full lineup of available Pebble accessories »


When will metal band orders place on ship?

6-8 weeks. We are shipping Pebble Time Steel bands for our Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers first. When those are complete, other metal band orders will start shipping.

I have an existing order in place for a Pebble Time Steel or Pebble Time Round with a leather band only. How can I add a metal band?

Simply place a separate order for the metal band of your choice. This ensures that your watch order will ship as soon as possible. Enjoy your watch with a leather band until your metal band arrives!

How does this affect the Pebble Time Steel Exchange Program?

The terms remain the same! Pebble Time Steel Kickstarter backers are eligible to pre-order any Pebble Time Round for a $50 discount (full details here). Eligible backers may order Pebble Time Round with a leather band or with both the leather and metal band and receive $50 off their order. Those who already ordered Pebble Time Round with leather and want to add a metal band should place a separate order for the metal band. There is no effective price difference for ordering the band separately.

New API and Updates Expand Nuance Voice Recognition to More Pebble Users (Release Notes)

You speak and we listen :)

Today, we’re giving Pebble developers the keys to unlocking awesome voice-powered apps for all Pebble Time, Time Steel, and Time Round users. Powered by Nuance, our new Dictation API makes Pebble apps that use voice recognition from the wrist possible. From keeping in touch hands-free to controlling smart homes and connected cars, the possibilities are endless. We’re excited to see what developers build with this sweet new tool.

The voice features from apps using our API can be enjoyed by all users—iPhone or Android—with a compatible Pebble smartwatch. Since Pebble Time users on Android already enjoy sending quick voice replies, we’re glad that those on iOS will soon enjoy voice-recognition apps as well.

It Started with a Text

Supported by amazing, die-hard users, we get to build technology that delights people every day. Our approach is simple and drives all we do: Start small. Improve constantly. Be faithful to your community. Get better with time.

Today, we are setting new standard for what smartwatches can be and who they can be for. Today, Pebble comes full circle.

Meet Pebble Time Round

Leave the phone in your bag and bring notifications, messages, incoming calls, and music controls to your wrist. Pebble Time Round is the perfect companion for those who like their wearable tech a bit more incognito.
