The new firmware brings a redesigned Health app, 4-button quick launch, Timeline updates, and more.

Although most budget products do not usually receive too much attention when it comes to firmware updates, Pebble is a company that does things differently. Known for its affordable smart wearables, Pebble has just announced that users of Pebble 2 and Pebble Time 2 (not officially launched yet), Pebble Time, Pebble Time Steel, and Pebble Time Round can update their firmware to version 4.0.

The new firmware includes a lot of minor changes and fixes, as well as a set of new features. These are the highlights:

  • A new Health app
  • Timeline with Quick Views
  • Redesigned launcher with App Glances and speed improvements
  • 4-button Quick Launch
  • improved email actions for Gmail users on iOS

Unfortunately, the Pebble Steel and Pebble Classic remain at version 3.12.2 for now. However, the improved Pebble apps for iPhone and Android devices work with all Pebble smartwatches that run version 3.12 of the firmware (or later).

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.
