Topic: Pebble ...

Hello -

In a perfect world, Duane or the "Duane-Equivalent" would take over the Pebble infrastructure.  But I guess Pebble is making the watch "just work" :

Pebble preps for the end of its smartwatch services

The end is near for Pebble. The latest update to Pebble watches should extend their life a bit longer by removing the dependency on cloud servers. This allows the devices to work without the Pebble services that have up until now was required for many user interactions. ...

Re: Pebble ...

Unfortunately (or I guess fortunately in this case) I don't have a Pebble.  I did have an "Inpulse" which was the first watch they made - it also became unsupported.  As I recall, even the development tools were cloud-based.

If there were sufficient documentation to create a replacement service for the Pebble device, I'd certainly have no problem hosting one.

Glad to see they are trying to do something for their customers. I can think of another company that should take notice (Sony).

Tar, feathers, congress. Some assembly required.

Re: Pebble ...

Fitbit bought Pebble for their IP and nothing else.

It has been said that they do not want to/care about extending support for the Pebble. They would be the ones to talk to.

Re: Pebble ...

How odd! I just bought two Pebble watches. Then saw these posts. Wouldn't it be strange to have it connected to the BlueOcty server?

Pebbles are being sold on Ebay and some are getting very cheap. I got one for less than $15 delivered.

Re: Pebble ...

Still it's the best best looking smart watches around. imo. The black one is my favorite.

Great for on the road. Let's you see who is calling or texting. Quick answers without having to pull out the phone. I just found a great compass app that is very cool. At least fitbit let the pebble stay active after the fall.
