With the latest firmware and smartphone app update, Pebble smartwatches get a handful of features such as more accurate health tracking, health-enabled watch faces, text replies, as well as Send Text app specific to Android.
Firmware v3.9 for Pebble can now track your steps more accurately in both kilometres and miles, depending on your settings.
Also, with the introduction on new API, developers can now develop new watch faces showing health information such as step count or sleep amount making the desired information easily accessible on the wrist.
Additionally, Pebble’s new firmware brings text replies, allowing users to respond to received messages with customised responses saved on the Pebble app.
Though specific to Android, users can respond to incoming calls with SMS, voice note, emoji, or custom message instead of answering calls.
