Pebble Time updates Android firmware, coming soon for older models

Since Pebble Time devices have now reached some of its intended users, specifically those who supported its Kickstarter campaign, it’s now time to upgrade its firmware for those using the wearable on an Android platform. A lot of the changes that they’ve made are based on user feedback and suggestions, and on their official site, they even put some of the exact tweets that have inspired the developers to make on the firmware.

Pebble Time receives first firmware update in version 3.1

Pebble has just started shipping out its brand new smartwatch, the Pebble Time, as rewards for those who backed them up in their Kickstarter campaign. They are also beginning production of the Pebble Time Steel and backers can expect their reward soon, although not exactly on schedule. So since 55,000 out of 57,000 Pebble Time devices are on their way or have reached their supporters, it’s about time to give the first firmware update, with the smartwatches receiving version 3.1 of the firmware as we speak.

Deus Ex Aria brings gesture control power to your wearable

The idea of a smartwatch goes beyond it being used as a small wrist computer, health and fitness tracker, and a notifications device. The technology is new but it has been rapidly evolving, thanks to smartwatch developers especially those who believe that Android Wear is THE future of wearables.

Pre-orders for Pebble Time devices now up on Best Buy

True enough, as previously announced, the brand new Pebble Time devices are already up for pre-order on the Best Buy website starting today. The much awaited colored and touch screen smartwatches from one of the pioneers in wearables started out as a Kickstarter project, but now that the supporters have finally gotten theirs, they are opening up orders to the public, but only if you live or your delivery address is in the US. The rest of the world will have to wait a little longer.

Pebble Time pre-orders on Best Buy will start by June 22

Now that the Kickstarter supporters have received their Pebble Time (supposedly) by this time, what about the next-to-early adapters who want to have their own new smartwatch? Well, if you're eager to have one, you'd have to wait a little longer. But the good news is that you can pre-order already by June 22 through their exclusive partner is BestBuy.com, if you live in the US, that is. If you live somewhere else, then you'd have to wait until the US residents have pre-ordered theirs.

The Aria adds gesture control to your Android Wear smartwatch

Truth be told, there were a couple of things manufacturers – and even Android developers themselves – were willing to sacrifice just to have a microcomputer strapped on to your wrist. In situations where you are doing stuff where your hands are busy (don’t get any ideas) like eating, brushing your teeth, playing ping-pong, or anything that will stop you from swiping your smartwatch to see notifications – we were willing to gloss over that. But really, someone should have thought about it, and it’s about time “The Aria” came out – because someone did think about it.

Stop! Pebble Time shipping on May 27

The original Pebble smartwatch was the first smartwatch to be particularly successful on Kickstarter and commercially. After the Pebble landed on the scene, there were hoards of other smartwatches that launched and sold decently. Fans of the Pebble watch looking for the next big thing from the company will already know about the Pebble Time smartwatch.
