Pebble 2.3 firmware now live with notification skipping with a double-click


Nearly a month into its most recent firmware update which has brought out a much-needed music volume control and Launcher item ordering, the maker of the Pebble smartwatch on Tuesday issued another firmware update while refreshing its companion iOS app with smaller changes.

The Pebble 2.3 software update brings improved Bluetooth performance and, more importantly, enables the ability to quickly skip to the next notification by double clicking, in addition to other tweaks…

As mentioned, the software update sports improved Bluetooth LE connectivity, various stability improvements and fixes and notification skipping with a double-click of the smartwatch’s up or down button.

Pebble’s blog post explains:

This new feature lets you quickly jump to the next notification if the current one you’re viewing requires scrolling to see all the content.

As before, if the notification you’re viewing is short and displays entirely on your Pebble, a single click is all it takes to go to the next one.

Pebble 2.3 firmware release notes:

  • Improved Bluetooth LE connectivity.
  • Added the ability to skip to the next notification with a double-click of the Down or Up buttons.
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements.

Pebble’s companion iOS app has been bumped up to version 2.2.2, offering additional JavaScript apps downloadable from the Pebble appstore.

Pebble Smartwatch 2.2.2 app release notes:

  • Enabled more new JavaScript apps to be downloadable in the Pebble appstore (Pebble apps included in this latest bundle will no longer say “Coming Soon” for iOS users).
  • No other major changes from version 2.2.

The Pebble app is available free in the App Store.
