Pebble Releases New Firmware Update

Following the launch of Pebble Health alongside Firmware Update v3.8 seven weeks ago, Pebble has officially announced the latest update coming to its Pebble Time family, the Pebble Time Firmware 3.9, offering wearers of the smartwatch a "healthy dose of features and improvements".

Pebble Time Firmware 3.9 features:

  • Pebble Health tracking is now more accurate and can show distance in kilometers. Toggle settings from the Pebble Time smartphone app
  • Support for apps and watchfaces showing activity data from the Pebble Health API
  • Incoming MMS messages now show descriptive icons and any text included
  • Speed improvements for Pebble Time and Time Steel, including snappier animations from Pebble Time Round
  • Improved Watch-Only Mode: keep your Pebble functioning as a watch for a few more hours when the battery is critically low. Alarms, the backlight, and softer vibration remain while Bluetooth and activity tracking shut off to save power
  • Improved low battery warnings based on time left with power instead of percentage remaining
  • Ура, дождались! Cyrillic characters are now supported in notifications and alerts. Enable from the Pebble Timesmartphone app: Menu » Settings » Watch Language » Selected Language
  • Under-the-hood fixes and stability improvements
Firmware Update v3.9 is now rolling out as a free update to all Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round owners. To update to the latest firmware, select Menu » Support » Update Your Pebble from the Pebble Time smartphone app.
