Lights, Smartwatch, Action: Android Wear notifications come to Pebble (Release Notes)

UPDATE: The Pebble Android app (v2.3) with Android Wear compatibility is now out if Beta. Download it today on the Google Play Store.

 

Android Wear + Pebble

‘Tis the season for anticipation. We count down the days to gifts and good wishes, and we just can’t wait. We’ve been in the workshop ourselves, crafting something Android Pebblers will love unwrapping. Version 2.3 of our Android app gives Pebble the power to reply and act on notifications right from your watch. It’s Android Wear notification compatibility on Pebble, and it’s awesome.

Android users on our own team are super thrilled with what version 2.3 lets them do from their Pebbles. We’ve built actions that even Android Wear devices themselves don’t perform.

Reply to a Hangouts message with emoji? Thumbs up.

NOTE: A new update to the Hangouts app for Android requires downloading the Android Wear application to get replies working (even for Pebble—mawp).

ESPN for Pebble Has Landed: Bring Sports Scores to Your Smartwatch

ESPN for Pebble

Heaven for any sports fan is a comfy couch, a big screen with the game on, unlimited hot wings, and all the free time in the world. Sadly, real life—work, errands, dance recitals, the DMV—loves to burst that happy bubble. There’s no shortage of stuff vying for our attention, pulling us away from enjoying the wide world of sports.

Even with DVRs and live-streaming, it’s impossible for sports junkies to keep tabs on all the teams, games, and league matchups we care about. There’s this insane stretch from November to February where you’ll catch me juggling between countless college football, NFL, NBA, and college basketball games every week. During this ugly (and awesome) time of year, there’s no peeling me off the couch: productivity nosedives, relationships suffer, and my belly grows.

Thanks to the ESPN Pebble smartwatch app, these dark days are over.
