Before the Moto 360 and other Android Wear devices arrived on the scene Pebble was the most popular smartwatch. In many people’s opinion it still is, but the space has gotten much more crowded. One thing that Android Wear devices do better than Pebble is notifications, but Pebble is trying to change that.
The latest update to the Pebble app for Android adds a very important feature: full notification support. Previously the Pebble app only supported notifications for phone calls, SMS, and Gmail. Users had to rely on 3rd-party apps to get any more than that. Now you can choose which apps are allowed to send notifications to the Pebble. Unfortunately dismissing a notification on the Pebble still doesn’t remove it from your phone.
The entire app has been rewritten from the ground up to be faster and more reliable. If you’re a Pebble user you know how badly this update was needed. Pebble is still one of the best smartwatch options available today, and it should only get better. Download Pebble for Android right here. Do you have a Pebble?
