Find Your Better Self with Pebble Health

With Pebble Health, the Time-series watches you already love wearing have evolved into a powerful platform for reaching your wellness goals. We’ve taken Pebble Health beyond daily step and sleep tracking. You can now paint a comprehensive picture of your achievements, see activity trends over time, auto-track runs and long walks, sleep smarter, and enforce healthy habits with insights and encouragement.

Pebble SW 3.12

Pebble Health now beautifully integrates with our mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Find a comprehensive overview of your activity and sleep data in the new Health section. Compare how your last day, week, or month of activity measures up against your typical performance and view your calories, step distance, and active time.

With new auto-detection of long walks and runs, Pebble Health sends an activity summary to your watch after completion and lets you dive into detailed stats for those activities on the mobile app.

Let Pebble Health find your ideal wakeup time with Smart Alarms, a new feature within the official Alarms app. Smart Alarms go off when you’re in your lightest sleep, up to 30 minutes before the set wakeup time, so you wake up most refreshed.

Pebble SW 3.12

Pebble Health’s on-wrist experience is now more encouraging and informative, to boot. Receive daily sleep and step summaries; insights on completed runs and long walks; and get notifications based on how well you’re performing compared to past results—all pinned to your timeline for easy review.

If you’re ready to be your most active and restful self, Pebble Health is eager to keep you on track. Visit the new Pebble Health page and our Support resources to learn more.

New Text Messaging Options for iPhone Users

Two text message features previously available to Android users are now available to more Pebble users on iOS.

Pebble SW 3.12

The Send Text app lets you start a conversation from your wrist. Send a canned response or voice note to recent and favorite contacts. Incoming calls can also be replied to with a canned text response or voice note.

The Send Text app requires a Time-series watch with text replies enabled from a compatible carrier. Incoming call replies works on all Pebble models that have text replies enabled from a compatible carrier.

We continue to work on getting more mobile carriers to support iOS Text Reply, a feature we launched last year to bypass current limitations in iOS. We encourage Pebble users to let Apple know that they would like to see an iOS Messages API, so that we can provide a more universal solution that integrates Pebble replies with iPhone’s Messages app.

Enjoy the updates, Pebblers! As always, keep in touch about what you love and want to see next.
