Pebble Time Smartwatch Update Offers New Health-Related Features

Pebble on Tuesday updated its official Pebble app and Pebble firmware to bring new health-related features to its line of smartwatches. By updating to 3.12, Pebble Time smartwatches will now support a new health chart feature for improved activity and sleep tracking over time.

Pebble Time Smartwatch Update Offers New Health-Related Features

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 Time Smartwatch Update Offers New Health-Related Features

The new app will provide overall activity and sleep summaries at the end of the day, as well as offer a new sleep-tracking feature that triggers an alarm up to 30 before the set alarm time if the device detects the user is in a light stage of sleep.

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.

The update offers more than just health-related features, as Pebble Time users can also initiate conversations form their wrist, using the Send Text app. The app allows voice messages, or pre-set messages to recent and favorite contacts. Incoming calls can also be replied to with a canned text response or voice note.

The Send Text app requires a Pebble Time watch with text replies enabled from a compatible carrier. However, the incoming call reply feature works on all Pebble models that have text replies enabled from a compatible carrier.

    Stupid change. People like the weekly graph on the watch itself.
