I've owned pebble watches for a few years now without problems. However, since the beginning of this month I have been unable to sync my watch with my phone. Like other people who've given reviews, I have tried everything to no avail. It is EXTREMELY annoying and my watch is basically useless now.
EDIT: just got version 4.4.1-1403. Battery drain issue solved. 👍 👍 Old review: On version 4.4.0-1403, the app drains 85% of my phone battery in 4 hours. Seriously devs, you can't do worse than that. Even the Android Wear app (which has tons of negative feedback) doesn't drain battery that way...
There are times (while switching phones), that the bluetooth section of the watch says "connected", but app on the phone says "connecting". 07/15: sudden disconnections. Has support for this being terminated even thought 2017 has not finished, yet? UPDATE: voice reply is not working at all. Commenting from an OP5
So sad! My pebble watch can not receive notification from Chamberlain myQ garage any more after the lastest update on July 18, 2017. Wish I could go back to older version.
This watch was perfect! It did everything i wanted it to....but now certain bits are starting to fail? For instance controlling the music, all i can do now is alter the volume. If you want to skip a track or restart one, you have to go to the phone directly to do it. I've uninstalled it and reloaded it to no avail! Its a shame really as it used to be brilliant 😔
I have been using pebble since inception. Pebble started the wearable movement and has been getting better with each update. Unfortunately some people don't realize you have to go into the app to update the firmware and that it does not automatically update. I have had zero problems with battery or crashing. My word of advise, not all apps are created equal and that may be why you have battery drain or crashing. Good luck Pebble with your future, I am sure we will be hearing from you again very soon. Thank you for fixing the icon issue, never thought it would be fixed.
We’ve updated our Android app to preserve the Pebble smartwatch experience and remove the dependence on cloud services.
The app lets Pebble devices keep working, even if online servers are not accessible for any reason. The login process can be skipped, apps can be side-loaded, and the latest watch firmware (including language packs) can be installed.
