Unlock Your Best Health, Quick Looks, and Fast Actions with Pebble 4.0 Apps and Firmware

***

This post has been updated to include details about Pebble Firmware 4.0.1, released on Tuesday, 6 September.

***

Team Pebble is proud to share the latest big update to our software and mobile apps. Version 4.0 is all about maximizing  your ability to “glance and go.” We worked hard to make sure your Pebble helps you get information quickly and act faster than ever before.

Pebble Health 4.0

All current users can update their Pebble apps to 4.0 from Google Play or the iTunes App Store. Pebble Time, Time Steel, and Time Round users can update their watches to 4.0 from the Pebble app: Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble. For more help with Pebble’s 4.0 software and app updates, visit our Support page (full release notes below).

Step Up to Smarter Health

Pebble Health is now faster, easier to find, and more informative from the wrist.

Pebble Health 4.0

Press Up from your watchface for quick glances at your step and sleep performance with the redesigned activity cards. Press Right from each activity to dive deeper and compare how you’re currently doing with your typical performance from the past week.

We also improved Pebble Health on the mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Activity and Sleep graphs are clearer and easier to understand.

Wind Down to a Glanceable Timeline

Firmware 4.0 makes handling your personal Timeline simple and straightforward.

Quick View 4.0

Press Down from your watchface for current and future items—see up to three days ahead. With new Quick Views (available on Pebble Time, Time Steel, Pebble 2, and Time 2), take peeks at what’s coming up next, automagically from your watchface. Press Down on a Quick View to see more about it. Press Back on a Quick View to dismiss it.

Select a Slicker Launcher

Pressing Select from your watchface zooms you to the speedy new Launcher menu.

Launcher 4.0

The condensed banner design shows more items at once. App Glances—an all-new feature—show preview info without even opening an app.

Like other Pebble apps, the Pebble Settings app can now be reordered by tapping and dragging in the Apps tab of the mobile app. Your changes will sync to the watch’s Launcher menu.

Built for Speed

Pebble 4.0 is laser-focused on delivering quick, rich glances that let you get things done fast, like speedier system animations that improve the overall experience.

Favorite Pebble apps are just a press and hold away with the updated 4-Button Quick Launch. Assign favorite apps to the Up, Down, Back, and Select buttons to get going.

The mobile apps for iPhone and Android get in on the action as well. The Pebble 4.0 apps keep you on track and make managing your Pebble watches, faces, apps, and notifications a breeze. The new look and feel brings fresh colors, cleaner layouts and menus, and zippier performance.

iOS Sneak Peek: Email Actions

In 4.0, Pebble users paired with iOS devices can now—like their Android friends—act on their emails. Special thanks to all the iOS Pebblers who helped us beta test this feature earlier this summer, you’re the best!

iOS Email Actions let you Delete, Archive, Mark as Read, Reply All, and Star emails received from Gmail accounts from your watch. You can also create custom canned responses for your email replies or send voice replies. Set up iOS Email Actions from the Pebble app: Settings » Email Preferences (Sneak Peek).

Pebble watches are still the only non-Apple wearables that can send replies to received iOS Messages, and now we’ve added email replies to the list of super-powers. It’s part of our continuing work to deliver the richest integration with iPhone possible. From being able to filter which apps send notifications to your wrist to integrating Pebble Health with Apple’s HealthKit, we love making the Pebble iOS experience better with regular updates.

Actionable notifications like Pebble email and text replies are a bit easier to implement for Android users, thanks to that operating system’s more open philosophy, but we’re always working to make the Pebble experience consistent for both mobile platforms. This sneak peek for iOS Pebble users today has been available to Android users for some time now.

Follow us and keep in touch on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Snapchat, and our new Pebble Forum about what you’re loving and what you want to see next.
