Actionable notifications like Pebble replies to texts and emails are a bit easier to implement for Android users, thanks to that operating system’s more open philosophy, but we’re always hard at work to make the Pebble experience on both mobile platforms as consistent as possible. The new features available for iOS Pebble users today have been available to Android users for some time now.

Pebble’s dedicated wellness ecosystem got its start when Pebble Health launched last year with step and sleep tracking, and we’ve worked tirelessly to evolve it further.
Today, we’re introducing our vision for a world-class suite of services for developing and nurturing healthy habits. No matter where we are in our fitness journeys, we can all use help in living healthier and happier—whether that’s by managing stress, staying active, getting the right vitamins and nutrients, or taking time for reflection.
Health’s place in the world of wearable technology is still uncharted territory—there’s much to discover and many questions to answer. No one yet knows exactly which services will work best for people, or how to best deliver a tailored, personalized experience that goes beyond cookie-cutter “solutions.” As part of our mission to pioneer and build the best wearable experiences imaginable, we’re making the Pebble Health platform more open and collaborative than ever.
A major highlight of the Pebble journey so far is the friends we make along the way.
Pebble Projects We Love
Our vision for wearable technology became a foundation for others to expand upon and be inspired by. All the credit in the world goes to those who have used Pebble to improve the lives of those with lifelong conditions like diabetes and Parkinson’s; assist teachers in the classroom; start successful businesses; express their creativity; or learn to code and crowdfund their own projects.
We love doing right by the people who love us by supporting and loving them back. On that note, check out some recent projects we love. We’re excited to see these ideas coming to life.
Today, we’re proud to announce Amazon Alexa integration with Pebble Core, bringing Amazon’s acclaimed voice services to a fully-independent, 3G-connected wearable device for the first time ever. Pebble Core backers on Kickstarter will be the first to experience Amazon Alexa on Pebble’s infinitely hackable ultra-wearable when shipping begins in early 2017.
We’re only four days in, and once again, your support has blown us away! You charged hard out of the gates to affirm your belief in our vision for the future of wearable technology. We couldn’t be more humbled and appreciative of your confidence in us. Making you proud to be a Pebbler is what we live for.
