Pebble firmware 3.8 now available

Pebble Time Round Android Wear smartwatch gets software update 3.8
Pebble Time Round
This update brings Timeline to Pebble Classic and Pebble Steel, while Time, Steel, and Time Round get Pebble Health.

Users of old Pebble wearables finally get some new features for their devices, as the latest firmware release brings Timeline to both Pebble Steel and Pebble Classic, as well as unlimited apps. At the same time, the more recent Pebble smart wearables get Pebble Health.

Next to the Timeline feature, the new firmware release for Pebble wearables, labeled 3.8, brings improvements to music controls, Facebook Messenger notifications, and the usual bug fixes, stability improvements, and minor performance tweaks. Pebble Health is only compatible with the Time, Steel, and Time Round smartwatches and has been developed with researchers at Stanford University. With improved fitness tracking capabilities, Pebble Health is fully compatible with both Google Fit and Apple HealthKit.

While users of Pebble Classic and Pebble Steel cannot enjoy the benefits of Pebble Health, even after updating for firmware 3.8, their devices work with activity tracking from other third-party apps like Misfit and Jawbone.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
