PebbleOS Update Brings Do Not Disturb, Improved Notifications, and More

pebble ios 7 -1

Pebble has announced the release of PebbleOS v1.14, an update that brings a most welcome “do not disturb” and a new “snooze alarm” feature, alongside other enhancements and fixes.

You can find the new features listed below:

  • Do Not Disturb. Block notifications for a set period of time (from Pebble: Settings » Notifications » Do Not Disturb).
  • Alarms app update. Create multiple Alarms, toggle Alarms on/off, and edit existing Alarms.
  • New “Snooze Alarm.” Customizable via the Pebble Alarms app.
  • Improved Notification Control. Specify what notifications are displayed (Notifications On, Phone Calls Only, or Notifications Off). Notification settings are now accessible more quickly through a dedicated menu (Settings » Notifications).
  • Improved iOS performance. Notifications are now sent more quickly from your iOS device to Pebble. After exiting Airplane Mode, Pebble will now search for connectable iOS devices immediately, instead of waiting one minute.

PebbleOS v1.14 also fixes an important issue that put the Pebble smart watch into “Recovery Mode” immediately after updating to v1.13, and fixes dropped Bluetooth connections, and also aims to fix the issue of when the Called ID info wouldn’t display after receiving a missed call, among other software improvements.

The company has also announced the release of Beta 3 of Pebble SDK 2.0, with bug fixes, stability improvements, and new features.

To upgrade to the latest Pebble OS, you need only to open the Pebble iOS app.

    Too little too late for me. I owned a Pebble for about 4 days before returning it. It regularly dropped the bluetooth connection so I was always checking my phone to make sure I wasn’t missing notifications. I also didn’t like the lag between seeing the notification on my wrist and feeling the phone buzz in my pocket. Sometimes it could take up to 10 seconds for the notification to show up on the watch, which doesn’t sound like a big deal probably, but it truly does impact the user experience since you spend that time contemplating whether or not to pull out your phone so you can see the notification.

    Hopefully this update addresses these issues.

    That is something that has always bothered me as well. This update has definitely fixed the delay. The watch vibrates literally 1 second after the phone shows the notification.
