iOS Text Reply Expands to More Users, Actionable Emails Coming Next

Pebble watches are still the only non-Apple wearables that can reply to received iOS Messages. It’s part of the work we do to deliver a rich, fully-featured integration with iPhone that keeps getting better. From being able to filter which apps send notifications to your wrist to integrating Pebble Health with Apple’s HealthKit, making the Pebble iOS experience the best it can be is how we roll.

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.

Introducing iOS Text Reply to the Pebble Time Lineup (Release Notes)

iOS Text Reply

Text Reply on iOS sends messages directly via your carrier, replies do not appear in the Messages app.

Pebble is excited to introduce Text Reply for iOS, a beta feature making us the first non-Apple smartwatch to bring voice and text replies to our iPhone users.

Starting today, Pebblers in the U.S. on a post-paid AT&T account can test drive iOS Text Reply using their Pebble Time, Time Steel, or Time Round. After setting things up, users can respond with a voice reply or pre-defined text to incoming items from the iOS Messages app.

Expanding voice capabilities to Pebblers with iPhones continues to be a big focus of ours. We are working to enable additional carriers and services to provide actionable notifications to more and more iPhone users. For full details about iOS Text Replies, review the FAQ below or on our Support page.

To get started with iOS Text Reply, follow these steps:

  1. Update your Pebble Time iPhone app to version 3.4 or higher.
  2. After updating the iPhone app, update your Pebble Time’s firmware to version 3.7 or higher. Select Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble if you aren’t prompted automatically.
  3. From the iOS app, navigate to Menu » Settings » Actionable Notifications to set up Text Replies for the first time.
  4. Follow the setup instructions.
  5. After successful setup, notifications received from the Messages app will have the option to reply with voice or a list of pre-defined responses.
  6. Note: Successfully sent Pebble replies will NOT appear in the iOS Messages app. The reply is sent as an SMS through AT&T directly, and not the Messages app.

Setting up iOS Text Reply

For full details about iOS Message Replies, review the FAQ on our Support page. Full release notes for Pebble Time Firmware 3.7, iOS 3.4, and Android 3.7 below.

FAQs

When will metal band orders place on pebble.com ship?

6-8 weeks. We are shipping Pebble Time Steel bands for our Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers first. When those are complete, other metal band orders will start shipping.

I have an existing order in place for a Pebble Time Steel or Pebble Time Round with a leather band only. How can I add a metal band?

Simply place a separate order for the metal band of your choice. This ensures that your watch order will ship as soon as possible. Enjoy your watch with a leather band until your metal band arrives!

How does this affect the Pebble Time Steel Exchange Program?

The terms remain the same! Pebble Time Steel Kickstarter backers are eligible to pre-order any Pebble Time Round for a $50 discount (full details here). Eligible backers may order Pebble Time Round with a leather band or with both the leather and metal band and receive $50 off their order. Those who already ordered Pebble Time Round with leather and want to add a metal band should place a separate order for the metal band. There is no effective price difference for ordering the band separately.
