Pebble update

Manage more functions directly from the watch

There's always something cool about getting a firmware update for your watch. Tonight Pebble unleashed OS version 1.14.1 for its smartwatch, bringing a few subtle but useful improvements. First you'll find a Do Not Disturb mode, which as you would expect turns off notifications for a set period of time, customizable right from the Pebble. Along the same line, you can now choose to have all notifications on, just phone calls, or no notifications at all from the Pebble's settings.

Next are alarm features — you can now set multiple alarms, toggle them on/off without deleting them, edit existing alarms and customize snooze functions for the alarm. There's also a whole big set of bug fixes in the latest update, including Caller ID issues, Bluetooth fixes and others.

You should be notified of the update via the Pebble app on your phone, where you'll be prompted to install it.

Still tempted by Pebble at $110-130 (there's been several sales, and one student discount running thru next year)... But somehow I feel like I don't need to be any MORE connected to my phone. :p

My pebble arrived today. It immediately installed update. Only a few hours of use and loving it. Simplicity of use.

Now if we could only get Google, Pebble, and Timely together in a room and have some standards for multi-device alarm syncing.

I hope they also fixed the Battery Drain issue.
Since the last update I have seen a significan drop in battery life, from 5 days to maybe 3 days. Previoulsy it would last almost a day while showing low battery, now I often find the clock running out of battery and switch off even before I see any indication that it is low battery.
