PebbleOS v1.10 for Pebble SmartWatch released

Today, Pebble released the v1.10 update for PebbleOS, which powers the Pebble SmartWatch. This update brings some highly anticipated new features along with a slew of bug fixes to the table.

The update can be accessed via the the Pebble app available on the App Store. If you’re a Pebbl SmartWatch owner, simply open up the Pebble app to get started. Check inside for the full change log.

The change log from Pebble’s forums:

What’s New

  • Added support for third-party watchfaces created by the watchface SDK (see the SDK release notes for more details).
  • Resolved power-savings issues causing impaired battery life when connected to an iOS device.
  • Improved the responsiveness and power-efficiency of several system applications.
  • Improved battery indicator to be more responsive and accurate.
  • Added an option to disable turning on the backlight using the accelerometer.
  • Added an option to disable the vibrating motor when a notification arrives.
  • Factory reset now removes all non-system applications and watchfaces.
  • “Allow Pebble to communicate…” pop-ups occur much less frequently on iOS.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when an email is sent over MAP on iOS with an empty subject.
  • Fixed a crash in the music app that occurred when Bluetooth was disabled.
  • Fixed a crash in the music app if tracks were changed too quickly when paired with an iOS device.
  • Fixed an issue where non-fullscreen apps that aren’t animated don’t render properly.
  • Fixed an edge-case where Pebble would not properly connect to an iOS device.
  • Fixed an issue where multiple vibration patterns would run concurrently.

The biggest news here, in my opinion, is the added support for third-party watchfaces created by the watchface SDK. We’re really looking forward to seeing what kinds of creative things developers can come up with. There’s also a huge incentive for iOS uses, with the resolved power-savings issues.
