How’s it hangin’?
The latest updates to Pebble’s watch firmware and mobile apps are live.
Pebble 2, the most complete wearable experience we’ve ever developed, is ready for your wrist!
The original Pebble put wearable technology on the map in 2012, inspiring others to follow our lead as we explored how wearable technology fits into our lives best. Pebble 2 is the ultimate expression of our approach to wearables: first-class fitness features coupled with the essential smartwatch experience we pioneered.
Pebble 2 is a long-lasting, water-resistant sports watch that’s thinner, lighter, and stronger than the original Pebble. It’s a focused, fun wearable that makes staying active, sleeping smarter, and nurturing healthy habits easier.
Pebble 2 + Heart Rate unifies the two experiences our community wants most: fitness tracking and time-saving convenience. No other band or smartwatch comes close to blending fit and smart together so beautifully for only $129.99.
Whether you’re psyched to live healthier or want to bring order to your digital life, Pebble 2 passes the test with flying colors.
We invite all current Pebble users to update their Pebble apps to 4.1.1 from Google Play or the iTunes App Store. Pebble Time, Time Steel, Time Round, and Pebble 2 users can update their watches to 4.1 from the Pebble app: Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble.

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.
Time flies when you’re having fun. With summer around the bend, we’re excited to unleash the latest wave of goodies for your wrists. Dive into what we’ve been working on in version 3.12 of Pebble’s firmware and mobile apps.
To unlock what’s new:
Find Your Better Self with Pebble Health
With Pebble Health, the Time-series watches you already love wearing have evolved into a powerful platform for reaching your wellness goals. We’ve taken Pebble Health beyond daily step and sleep tracking. You can now paint a comprehensive picture of your achievements, see activity trends over time, auto-track runs and long walks, sleep smarter, and enforce healthy habits with insights and encouragement.
Pebble Health now beautifully integrates with our mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Find a comprehensive overview of your activity and sleep data in the new Health section. Compare how your last day, week, or month of activity measures up against your typical performance and view your calories, step distance, and active time.
With new auto-detection of long walks and runs, Pebble Health sends an activity summary to your watch after completion and lets you dive into detailed stats for those activities on the mobile app.
Spring has sprung, and we’ve got a fresh round of watch and app updates to enjoy.
Version 3.11 of our firmware and apps expands iOS Text Reply to Verizon customers, upgrades Pebble Health’s sleep tracking, introduces new customization options, and more.
Dive in for what’s new and how to update your watch and Pebble apps. As always, keep us posted about what you love and want to see next.
iOS Text Reply for Verizon
@Pebble Any chance for Verizon IOS users in the future?

A great chance.
@Pebble when will iOS reply support come for Verizon? It would make my pebble time feel like a whole new watch.

As you wish!
Verizon Wireless is now a compatible carrier for iOS Text Reply, expanding Pebble’s reach as the first non-Apple smartwatches with working actionable message replies for iPhone.
Pebblers in the US with a Verizon contract can use iOS Text Reply from any Pebble smartwatch. After getting set up, incoming iOS and Verizon Messages can be responded to with a voice note (Time-Series watches only), emoji, or custom text reply.
With Verizon and AT&T on board as compatible carriers for iOS Text Reply, actionable message capabilities for Pebble users on iPhone continues to expand. We are working to get more carriers and services on board in response to your feedback.

New Features in 3.11 Firmware and Apps
Pebble Firmware 3.10
After updating your watch firmware to version 3.10, you’ll notice tweaks to Pebble Health, including a refined activity summary at the end of the day.
Small improvements are nice, but sometimes, bigger is better. Firmware 3.10 super-sizes 12 of our top watch emoji when single ones are received. Has science gone too far?
iOS App Redesign and Upgrades
You’ll notice the Pebble Time app for iPhone is jumping from version 3.6 to 3.10. We’ve bundled in a fresh layout and healthy dose of upgrades befitting this leap. The new design offers a smoother experience when setting up and managing your Pebble while laying the groundwork for cool new features to come.
We’re happy to share a healthy dose of features and improvements bundled in with today’s Pebble software updates. From a better Pebble Health experience to expanded messaging options, there’s something special for every smartwatch in the Pebble family.
Pebble Health(ier) in Firmware 3.9 ?
Pebble Health, our seamless step and sleep tracker, just got better.
Apps and watchfaces featuring Pebble Health stats are now possible, thanks to a new API released today. Starting with Stride (pictured above), Health-enabled watchfaces will be live soon on the Pebble appstore. Visit our Developer page to learn more about building with the Health API.
New health app for @Pebble is the schizz! How about a KM’s setting for everyone else outside the US?
— Ian Walker (@walkerian) December 16, 2015
Roger that, Ian! Pebble Health is now more accurate overall and includes the option to show step distance in kilometers.
Beyond Pebble Health, today’s updates deliver plenty to smile about. Check the full rundown below and keep in touch about what you’re down to see next. Full release notes below.
iOS: Send custom responses to received Messages (works on watches with text replies enabled from a compatible carrier).
We’re thrilled to share some fantastic updates to Pebble’s software and smartphone apps today, with something for every Pebbler to enjoy. On top of bringing timeline to Pebble Classic and Steel, Pebble Health makes its debut on our Pebble Time lineup. It’s a brand new, fully native activity tracking experience with timeline integration.
Pebble Health: A Friendly, Seamless Approach to Fitness Tracking
Developed in collaboration with researchers at Stanford University, Pebble Health tracks your daily activity and automatically detects your sleep phases. Its seamless integration with timeline makes your day’s stats and insights conveniently glanceable and accessible. Wake up to a timeline pin reviewing how much you slept. Wrap up the day with a report of your step count. Getting started with Pebble Health is a breeze. Simply update your Pebble smartphone app and watch to the latest versions and you’re good to go!
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.
