Pebble Ringer app launches for Android, we go hands-on

Pebble rolled-out an updated SDK earlier in the month. Specifically, that update was for the Pebble Kit which added support for two-way app communication.

Pebble review: Two weeks with a smartwatch

After what seemed like a wait that took forever, my Pebble smartwatch was finally delivered on April 6.

I will also risk giving a spoiler in the beginning by saying that I really do like my Pebble. But to balance that a little bit, I am not able to say the Pebble is perfect and honestly I am not even sure how comfortable I would be offering a recommendation at this time.

Pebble smartwatch firmware update brings shutdown fix

Some Pebble smartwatch users had recently been complaining about an issue that caused the watch to go dead after a shutdown. The folks at Pebble note that this issue was affecting some users with firmware 1.8.x and 1.9 and it was due to the Pebble's MCU not being "correctly reconfigured prior to entering shutdown." Technical reason aside, there is a bit of good news for all Pebble users.
