Pebble OS 4.0 streamlines access to Health, Timeline, Launcher
All new looks are in store if you decide to update both your Pebble app and your Pebble Time/Time Steel/Time Round watches to firmware 4.0. Not only that, but Pebble OS has a new feel, too.
Straight from the watchface, you can press up to hit up Pebble Health. You’ll get your step stats and more to the right. Week-to-week compares are also on the screen, along with your goals. The Pebble app displays activity and sleep stats in easier to read graphs. Downwards from the clock, you’ll find a Timeline stretching up to the next 72 hours with event-by-event Quick Views.
The select button will take you to the Launcher menu with quick commands and app access. App Glances let you peek at info bytes right from the menu. You can press and hold the up, down, Back and Select buttons from your homebase to get to your most used apps.
iOS users can now join in with their Android pairers in acting upon emails — engaging in so-called “Email Actions”. They’ll need to activate the feature, though, as it’s a sneak peek feature — that happens in the Settings.
Pebble stated in its blog post that it’s been trying to refine its software for users’ “Glance ‘n’ Go” lifestyles. This update brings us a step closer to ease.
