Pebble Smartwatch Gets Do Not Disturb Settings & Other Updates
The Pebble smartwatch just got a much needed update that offers a “do not disturb” mode and better support for notifications and alarms. This latest update comes just a month after Pebble received an overhaul for iOS 7 users, including full notification support.
The new update enhances iOS performance, sending notifications more quickly from iOS to the Pebble. The update also improves how notifications work on Pebble. You can now easily choose if you want to receive all notifications on your smartwatch, just phone calls or turn notifications off. This notification control plays well with the best new feature, a “do not disturb” mode that lets users choose a period of time when notifications will be off. This is great for people who wear a watch to bed and don’t want to be roused by a vibration from late night tweeters. Also for those who don’t want to hear the vibrations in the middle of the night from their nightstand, this is a great new feature.
Pebble has improved its alarm app, giving you the ability to create multiple alarms, toggle an alarm to be on or off and edit existing alarms. There’s also a new “snooze” alarm, for people who want to put off dealing with their alarm.
To update to the latest version of the Pebble firmware, just open the iOS or Android app and click the update button when prompted.
