As huge fans of Reading Rainbow, Team Pebble is stoked to see LeVar Burton’s campaign join the top five most-funded Kickstarter projects ever—congratulations are in order! To help Reading Rainbow finish strong in its final days, we’re honored to adopt a classroom, introduce a Limited Edition Reading Rainbow Pebble, and encourage all Pebblers to support in any way they can. With your help, Reading Rainbow is within striking distance of setting the all-time record for most Kickstarter backers before the campaign closes on Wednesday, 2 July.

Pebble appstore now on Android + new partners

37 likes

We're happy to announce that the Pebble Android app featuring the Pebble appstore is now available for download from the Google Play store. It's taken a bit longer than expected, but we wanted our Android users to enjoy the same seamless and delightful experience we recently provided to Pebblers on iOS. Special thanks to the Pebble users and developers who tested our Android beta builds: your help and feedback was invaluable.

If you’re looking for apps to get started with, check out a few of our favorite Android companion apps:

New Partner Apps! 

Along with the Android appstore launch, we’re happy to welcome eBay, Evernote, and Time Warner Cable as partners. They join our growing lineup of partners, including Mercedes-Benz, Yelp, and Foursquare.

The eBay app for Pebble lets users quickly and easily access their eBay Feed and discover products on their smartwatch. With the push of a button, the eBay app for Pebble allows users to add an item to their Watch List and then complete the shopping experience on their smartphone.

Evernote for Pebble helps you remember everything across all your devices by giving you convenient, wrist-top access to core Evernote features like Checklists, Reminders, and Notebooks. Pebblers using Evernote can easily view upcoming reminders, bring up notes about a new restaurant recommendation, check off items from grocery lists without digging into pockets for a phone, and more.

Time Warner Cable and Pebble have teamed up to build a Pebble app that allows Intelligent Home subscribers to control their home right from their wrists. If you’re at SXSW Interactive this year, swing by the Developer Garage to see the Time Warner Cable app for Pebble in action.

We’d also like to congratulate Mercedes-Benz for recently launching their phenomenal Digital DriveStyle app in the Pebble appstore.

The Pebble smartphone app featuring the Pebble appstore is available for download from the iTunes Store and the Google Play store.

Team Pebble will be in Austin, TX for SXSW Interactive, 7–11 March. It’s always a blast meeting Pebblers in-person, so we hope to see as many of you as possible for the events we’re participating in!

Pebble for Android 2.0 Release Notes

  • Completely revamped and improved user interface design. 
  • Pebble watchapp directory: browse, find, and install the latest watchapps for Pebble. 
  • Watchapp locker: keep track of your favorite apps and manage the apps on your Pebble. 
  • The list of prior notifications is now stored on your Pebble. 
  • Using Pebble watchapps that connect to the internet to fetch data such as location or weather requires the Pebble Android app to be running on your phone. 
  • This release supports a single Pebble watch. We are aware that some users may have multiple Pebble smart watches, and will add support in a future release. 
  • Users of the Beta release of the Android 2.0 application will only see the old app in the Google Play Store. Delete the Beta version of the app to see the public version properly. 
  • Side-loading apps from the “Downloads” app or Gmail may fail. This is a known issue—users must currently use another method (e.g. Dropbox, downloading with an alternate browser, copying manually to a SD card, loading from the File Manager, etc.) 
  • Users may have to manually re-launch the Pebble app and reconnect to a Pebble that has been disconnected from the paired device for a long period of time. 
  • If a user is experiencing difficulty connecting their Pebble and phone: We suggest the user first try using (device) Home button then launching the Pebble app again via the Android launcher, then attempting to connect again. If that does not work, we suggest the user navigate to the Bluetooth settings menu, un-pair on both the android and pebble devices, and turn Bluetooth on Android off then on.

We hope you enjoy the new Android appstore and partner apps. Thanks as always and Pebble on!

You’ve all been patiently waiting for the Pebble appstore to launch and the day has finally arrived!

We’re extremely proud to announce that the Pebble appstore is now live with over 1,000 apps and watchfaces. The appstore features separate areas for apps and watchfaces, with six app categories: Daily, Tools & Utilities, Notifications, Remotes, Fitness, and Games.

Meet Pebble Steel + Pebble appstore + new partners

134 likes

Two thousand and thirteen was an incredible year for Pebble. We shipped to you, our amazing Kickstarter backers, landed at Best Buy, AT&T and Amazon, enabled iOS 7 notifications, launched SDK 2.0 and more. Today, with over 300,000 Pebbles on wrists all over the world, we’re back in Las Vegas and have some really great news to share with you.

First, we’re getting ready to launch the Pebble appstore — the very first open platform for sharing apps optimized for wearables. The appstore will live within the existing Pebble smartphone app on your iOS or Android smartphone, so you can find and download Pebble apps directly from your phone.

We’ve made browsing easy, with categories like Daily Living, Remote Controls, Games, Notifications, Tools & Utilities, Sports & Fitness and Watchfaces, of course. That means you’ll more easily be able to find apps that help you track your workout, manage your music or control your thermostat. In addition, we’ll be curating the Pebble appstore to bring the latest and greatest apps and watchfaces right to your wrist.

Second, we’re delighted to introduce Pebble Steel, our new, premium smartwatch. With Pebble, we’ve created an iconic, colorful and sporty smartwatch, but we wanted to build something even more refined — crank the style dial to 11.

Pebble Steel takes everything you know and love about Pebble—the crystal clear ePaper display, weeklong battery life, and waterproof design—and wraps it a smaller, thinner package. It’s made of forged and CNC-machined stainless steel.

The display is protected by a Corning® Gorilla® Glass lens with an oleophobic, anti-fingerprint coating. The housing also subtly incorporates a RGB LED light to indicate charge status. Like the original Pebble, Pebble Steel is waterproof up to 5 ATM.

Pebble Steel comes in two finishes: Brushed Stainless and Black Matte. All models are bundled with both a matching metal band and a black leather strap. The Black Matte Pebble Steel is crafted using a process called Physical Vapor Deposition to provide a tactile, deep black finish that’s also ultra-durable.

Starting today, you’ll be able to order Pebble Steel exclusively from getpebble.com for $249 US, which includes free courier shipping worldwide for early orders. Orders for Pebble Steel will begin shipping on January 28.

Third, we’re extremely proud to announce that Pandora, ESPN and Mercedes-Benz are joining our lineup of partners — which already includes Yelp, Foursquare, GoPro and iControl — and bringing more tiny moments of awesome to your Pebble everyday.

Pandora, iControl, and Mercedes-Benz will be demoing their Pebble apps using Pebble Steel here in Las Vegas — please come take a look if you’re attending CES. Otherwise, you’re invited to watch our announcement video.

We’re super excited about what the Pebble appstore, Pebble Steel, and our new partners bring to the table. Our mission is clear: we’re creating the gold standard for wearables that mesh perfectly with your everyday life, and building the fundamental ecosystem and platform for these devices.

Two thousand and thirteen was phenomenal for Pebble, but expect even more from us this year as we continue to improve our platform and listen to your feedback. Stay in touch with us by signing up for our newsletter in the upper right corner of our blog (blog.getpebble.com).

Thanks as always and keep on Pebbling!
