New Pebble update brings massive overhaul to iPhone experience

Pebble has announced the availability of Firmware 3.10 for its smartwatch range, as well as a meaningful update for iPhone users.

The new firmware brings a couple of tweaks and additions direct to the Pebble range itself, including the Pebble Time (as pictured). Pebble Health now includes a refined activity summary at the end of the day, and it also super-sizes 12 of the top emoji when received in isolation.

But the really big change here relates to the iOS app. It’s leapt from version 3.6 to version 3.10, signifying a complete redesign.

There’s a new, slicker layout, with core Watchfaces, Apps, and Notifications tabs along the bottom. You also get much finer control over notifications through that Notifications tab.

The section contains all of your paired apps, and enables you to toggle individual Pebble notifications on or off. Apps that are toggled off here will essentially mute the notifications on your Pebble, appearing only on your iPhone.

You can also set times for each app notification to be muted in this way. So if you want a certain app to send you notifications on weekdays, but not at weekends, you can set it up accordingly.

It’s now also possible to mute app notifications from your Pebble when you receive them.

Both the iOS and Android apps get support for more languages. These now include English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The Android app in general hasn’t had such a radical overhaul as the iPhone app, with simple improvements to the Send Text app and bug fixes chief among the additions.
