Long time ago when Pebble launched the Pebble Time, they promised to update the classic version. Finally they announced it after a short beta testing phase. It only takes about 5 minutes to upgrade and super easy. Here’s how:
- Disconnect your Pebble with your phone
- Forget the bluetooth between your phone and your Pebble
- Install the Pebble Time app from Google Play or App Store
- Launch the app and sync your Pebble with your phone
- Enjoy the new update!
I’ve been using it for quite a while and not a problem so far. I love the timeline feature to glance my future schedule and weather update. The animation is brilliantly done and did a very good job of making everything move natural. They remove the 8 apps max limitation so that’s good to know. Now you can also rearrange the apps in the order that you want.
You can’t change the watch face with the up and down button again since it is used for the timeline feature but you can change it from the watch face settings. Personally I think that’s a good design decision as I would only use one watch face at a time anyway.
Thx for keeping the promise Pebble! It’s refreshing to know that some companies kept their promises. Unlike many others who didn’t.
