Latest batch of Pebble updates brings iOS Text Reply to Verizon, timeline snooze, and more

When it rains, it pours. And spring feels like a perfect season for constant precipitation, combined with just as frequent rounds of sunshine. Pebble is sure going to warm you up by rolling out a deluge of updates for both its cross-platform watches and their respective iPhone and Android apps.

Cheaper than ever before, Time-series devices gain new vibration settings, snooze timeline reminder functionality and improved sleep tracking accuracy, among others. Once you bump up your firmware to version 3.11, you’ll therefore be able to select your favorite vibration pattern for Notifications, Incoming Calls, and Alarms, knowing at all times the type of alert you’re getting without looking at your wrist.

Meanwhile, if you don’t feel like dealing with Timeline reminders at the exact moment they’re first delivered, you can now delay them by 10 minutes, another 10, and so on. As for your daytime naps, they’re finally monitored beyond the one-hour mark, which is practical, but also laziness-encouraging.

If you use a Pebble Time in combination with an iPhone on Verizon, and were envious of AT&T clients treated to iOS Text Reply support starting way back November, today’s your big day. At last, you can program your watch to directly respond to messages, via text, voice or even emoji. Talk about convenience, true mobility and futurism.

That’s not all iOS Pebblers have to look forward to either, with login 1Password integration, Notifications tab search, and various bug fixes added into the equation, as well as improved Apple HealthKit compatibility for calories and distance tracking.

Last but not least, owners of both a Pebble wearable and Android handheld get enhanced Google Fit integration, plus “bug fixes and performance improvements.”
