In the midst of the excitement and work going into our Kickstarter campaign for Pebble Core, Pebble 2, and Time 2, the team continues to bring regular updates to our current watches and apps. Version 3.13 of Pebble’s firmware and mobile apps includes a clearer, more accurate Pebble Health experience; an official Weather app; a new emoji; and a fix to keep the iPhone app’s file size down.

Behind the Scenes in Asia
In the lead-up to mass production later this year, our industrial design, mechanical, and manufacturing teams are currently in Asia visiting factories, assessing packaging mockups, reviewing pre-production watchband samples, and more.
Their two-week adventure will take them through Shenzhen, Hong Hong, and Taiwan.
The work being done now will prepare Pebble 2 and Time 2 for the manufacture of pre-production “DVT” units.
These units will be the versions of Pebble 2, Time 2, and Core that will undergo a wide battery of verification tests—from performance and reliability testing to environmental, mechanical, and regulatory trials.
We look forward to having them back at HQ next week, but are enjoying the sights they’re sharing from behind the scenes.
