Pebble v1.9 Firmware Update Adds New Watch Faces, Snake Game

Pebble has updated its smartwatch to v1.9, which aims to bring an improved user interface, new watchfaces and enhanced ambient light detection. Alongside this welcome improvement, the update also brings the classic game of Snake as one of its watch faces.

Users can choose from different watchfaces by pressing the right top and bottom (up and down) buttons, so you don’t have to browse through a menu to locate them.

Also with this update watchfaces are at the bottom of the window stack, so if you keep pressing the back button from anywhere inside Pebble’s menus, you will see your previously displayed watchface, the Pebble blog notes.

Our Pebble froze during the update, so we needed to perform a hard reset. This can be done by holding down the middle button for more than 10 seconds.

With this update, we tend to think that the Pebble team prepares users for the avalanche of watchfaces, as the Pebble SDK is due in the second week of April.
