Hey friends, just checking in with a PSA for any Pebblers paired with iPhones.
iOS 10 introduced a ton of cool new goodies for your devices, but also introduced some critical Bluetooth bugs that kept third-party accessories like Pebble 2 + Heart Rate from pairing properly with the new iPhone 7.
With the release of iOS 10.1 this week, our friends in Cupertino squashed the bugs and improved Bluetooth connection reliability for all Pebble models. Kickstarter backers with the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus who have not yet set up their Pebble 2 rewards should update their phones before on-boarding their watches. Trust us, it’ll make life so much easier 🙂
If you’ve been experiencing any nagging Bluetooth connection issues between your Pebble watch and iOS device, we recommend updating to iOS 10.1. If issues persist, please drop us a line using your Pebble app: Menu » Support » Contact Support to email us with diagnostic log files automagically attached.
Until next time!
