New Firmware and Android Updates for Pebble Time

Bigger, Brighter, Awesome-er: New Firmware and Android Updates for Pebble Time

We’re all about making the Pebble experience better over time, thanks to regular updates and feedback from the community.

New Dismiss All feature

Today, we’re happy to share updates to Pebble Time’s operating system and Android apps that bring top-requested settings and features to your wrist (full release notes below).

To update Pebble Time’s operating system/firmware, select Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble within the Pebble Time app for iOS or Android.

Backlight duration

As you wish! Version 3.2 of the Pebble Time firmware’s got new settings for backlight intensity and duration.

Vibration request

New font size settings

Can do! Today’s update makes vibration intensity and font sizes in notifications, layouts, and other areas of the system adjustable from the original defaults.

The fact that Pebblers themselves have a hand in the features and updates that come along the way is amazing—we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Timeline for Legacy Pebbles

Those with Pebble and Pebble Steel have been eager to see support for the timeline interface and other Pebble Time-related features on their watches as well. We’re committed to making sure all Pebble watches—both our newest offerings and legacy models—get better with time.

Our plan is to update Pebble and Pebble Steel to the latest version of the operating system—including timeline and unlimited apps—later this year. While we don’t have an exact timeframe to share yet, rest assured that it’s a leading priority for the software team. As always, we’ll share new developments as they happen.

For now, keep us posted on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, our Forums, or our Ideas page about what you’re loving so far and what you’d like to see next.

Until next time,

Team Pebble
