Pebble introduces new 4.0 update with apps and firmware


Pebble recently introduced a big update to its app suite and firmware. Version 4.0 is “all about maximizing your ability to ‘glance and go'”.

All Pebble users can update their Pebble apps to the latest update either from Google Play or the iTunes App Store. If you have a Pebble Time, Time Steel or Time Round, you can update to 4.0 from the Pebble app. Go to Menu > Support > Update Your Pebble.


Pebble Health is now smarter than ever, and easier to find. Just press up from your watch face to get quick glances of your step and sleep performance. Activity cards are redesigned – press right from each activity to dive deeper into your information and compare past performances.

Update 4.0 also brings new Quick Views to your Timeline. You can get a sneak peek at upcoming events, and press down to get more information. Pressing Select on your watch face shows you the new Launcher menu, condensed to give you even more information at once.


With the update, your Pebble is faster. Everything is centered around delivering rich glances that you can quickly see. Favorite apps are easier to access – just press and hold to assign favorite apps to the Up, Down, Back and Select buttons.

Users that pair their Pebble with an iOS device now have Email Actions. These let you delete, archive, mark as read, reply all and star emails right from your watch – for Gmail. You can create custom responses for email replies or send voice replies. Set up email actions from the Pebble app by going to Settings > Email Preferences (Sneak Peek).
