Unsupported. The company no longer exists. There will be no more updates to the software to communicate with your phone. Don’t buy.

Warning…

“Pebble has ceased its daily operations, and is no longer producing or selling smartwatches. For more information, please visit blog.pebble.com
So, there is no warranty or support for Pebble watches.

I have a Pebble Time, it continues to work fine for now.
The future of keeping Pebble watches running: https://developer.pebble.com/blog/

There is also http://rebble.io/ working to keep the platform alive. There are a LOT of Pebble users, and many of us (if not most) are nerds. We like programming, hacking, modding, and making things do more than they were designed for.

So I have a fair bit of confidence these watches will be around for a while.

At least with the newest firmware, the Pebble watches are no longer dependent on the Pebble Servers to run any applications.

No official support, but the tech community support will be around for years. But if the hardware dies in a few months, you’re SOL.

I have one I purchased on Woot previously. It was a great watch until the company was purchased. Now it resets to default settings periodically, so I am left with only the 2-3 default watch settings, unless I constantly try to reinstall everything. The alerts and alarms are still functional regardless of the reset which makes it still useful.

FWIW, this is not normal. I’ve been using a pebble watch every day since the original version was released (3 different watches, all of which still work) and I’ve never had this problem. I think the timing of your issue and the company getting bought are a coincidence.

Buyer Beware:

I bought the Steel around Thanksgiving last year & I thought it was a great watch. I’ve been swimming with it, used it as a silent alarm, and been able to reply to texts while driving just by pressing a button & talking to my watch. The watch part is still nice, however the software that links it to my android phone is junk and will never be updated thanks to Pebble selling parts to fit-bit.
I had been having phone issues for a few months, starting around the beginning of the year…after looking into settings and other info on my phone, I found that the pebble app was using over 2Gb of data per month, half on cellular. I uninstalled the app and my phone has been functioning at almost 100% again. So now I’m trying to find a way to use my watch again. I’m sure there are ways, but I’m not sure what they are right now.

I agree. I have two pebble (one original and the time) and have not had that issue. Had you checked for a firmware update when you got the watch? Play Store still has the app there. (Firmware 4.3)

9to5mac.com posted this yesterday:
https://9to5mac.com/2017/04/05/pebble-functionality-after-fitbit-acquisition/

Honestly, my experience with my Pebble Steel was less than optimal. I pre-ordered the Steel as soon as it was announced. Unfortunately, I experienced what I believed to be hardware issues from the beginning. Pebble support was less than helpful, claiming every time that it was a phone issue, despite multiple phones. When I eventually experienced irrefutable hardware errors (screen corruption), about 16 months into my ownership, they denied my warranty claim (1 year warranty) and condescendingly offered a coupon to purchase another one.

So, the best I can say is buyer beware. The quality of the product may not be what you expect.

SHOULD YOU BUY A PEBBLE NOW?
If the servers and Fitbit acquisition is holding you back I wouldn’t worry about it much about it. Pebble’s more open nature lets be used with third party software (such as gadget bridge) with no problems so seriously, stop asking whether the servers getting shut down is an issue. It’s really not
As for why should you pick up a pebble over other options I can’t know what you need from a watch or smartwatch but I can run you through a quick pro con list

PROS
[LIST]
[]Sunlight legible display
[
]Good battery life (except for the Pebble Time Round)
[]Good water resistance (except for the Pebble Time Round)
[
]Nice slim profile (especially the Pebble Time Round)
[]It’s basically really close to a “dumb watch” (I really hate that word) but has a lot of smart features and it strikes a nice balance between both.
[
]Simple operation
[]Works with a lot of devices (personally I use it on both Android and Blackberry OS 10 and you do have some Windows phone options if that’s your thing)
[
]Strong third party development
[/LIST]

CONS
[LIST]
[]No warranty (sorry :c)
[
]Increasing price and decreasing availability (seriously snatch up a few if you can)
[]Longevity problems (as there are no replacement parts for now)
[/LIST]Now since that’s over in this guide I’m gonna cover:
[LIST]
[
]Watch features and specs (I will not be listing full tech specs you can find those you can find here )
[]After Pebble and beyond 2018(to some degree as there’s only so much I can predict)
[
]Physical Customization
[/LIST]

WATCH FEATURES AND SPECS
Now there are 7 Pebble watches with two declared as legacy.

Pebble Time
The Pebble Time is one of the two watches released with the second kickstarter. Probably the best all rounder.
[LIST]
[]1.25" 168x144 64-color e-paper display
[
]150 mAH battery, rated up to 7 days (realistically around ~5 days)
[]Plastic body with Curved Gorilla Glass 3 display with aluminium housing. The paint on the housing is prone to scratching. Either putting a skin on or buffing the metal out helps.
[
]Microphone
[*]Pebble Time Series Charger
[/LIST]

Extra notes:
here has been note of “creaky hardware” for the pebble time which has sometimes lead to a broken water seal. While only the first batch of Pebble Times suffered this it is good to remember this and if possible get a replacement if not be a bit cautious about it. Also the paint on the bezel scratches really easily. A skin goes a long way honestly (linked down below). The screen is pretty scratch resistant though.

Should you buy:
If you wanna jump on the Pebble bandwagon, this is your best price to performance option. It has most of the available features and has very few down sides and isn’t as highly priced as the Pebble Time Steel.

Pebble Time Steel
The Pebble Time Steel is the second watch announced during the second kickstarter. It is the more premium option to the Pebble Time’s more plastic build and it was the flagship watch for Pebble.
[LIST]
[]1.25" 168x144 64-color e-paper display
[
]250 mAH battery, rated up to 10 days
[]All metal body with curved Gorilla Glass 3 display
[
]Microphone
[*]Pebble Time Series Charger
[/LIST]

Extra notes:
The little bit of bezel does apparently scratch and there have been numerous reports of the button falling off? (need help I don’t own PTS)

Should you buy:
If you want one of the most premium option from Pebble (that actually was released) this is it. It has all of the Pebble Time features plus a more premium chassis plus a bigger battery.

Pebble Time Round
The Pebble Time Round is Pebble’s attempt a low profile round watch targeted at people who weren’t too fond of rectangular profile of existing watches.
[LIST]
[]1" 180x180 64-color e-paper display
[
]58 mAH battery, rated up to 2 days (realistically around ~1 day)
[]All metal body with flat Gorilla Glass 3 display
[
]Microphone
[*]Pebble Time Series Charger
[/LIST]

Extra notes:
The 5 ATM or 30 meters of dynamic pressure rating is exchanged for less impressive ipX7. The battery smaller battery is definitely felt. Apps need to specifically compiled or even rewritten for the round display and if all of that didn’t sound horrible, due to the more often charging and the battery in a year, year and half later is going to feel much smaller but damn doesn’t it look good.

Should you buy:
Even though the paragraph of down sides I wrote, if you have a Pebble Time or Time Steel and are wanting to try one of Pebble’s more outlandish offerings definitely. The battery isn’t super horrendous personally as I can get a good 24 hours which is enough to even get through a day a half (ish). Though as your only Pebble device I’d definitely think it a bit through as you’re not getting some of Pebble’s hallmark feature such as the long battery and the large app library. Really good looking though.

Totally agree—I own two Pebbles, one original 3 y.o., and one time 1 y.o. , both running with no issues. This is a really decent deal on a great watch IMHO. The waterproofness and 7 day battery life is wonderful.

I agree, I’ve had mine for about half a year now and it’s working fine. While I’m disappointment the watch is no longer supported, it still does everything I want in a smart watch without the bulk.

My wife and I picked up the Pebble 2 as part of the last crowd funding. They closed down a week after my wife got hers (mine came earlier.) That said, they work well. I use mine to track laps when swimming and to get notifications on the go. At this price I don’t really see much of a downside even with the company’s demise.

little bit lower price and free shipping on amazon, at least on the silver time steel. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B011VB21DU

I bought a Time from Woot last June. It’s been chugging along just fine. I mainly use it for activity, tracking, sleep tracking and the silent alarm. I have a watch face that shows the current weather conditions and temp, time, step count and date.

Just the other day, the Pebble app on iOS updated. As mentioned, they made some changes on the cloud side. The biggest improvement I saw was how it connected with the phone. Until this update, I had to shutdown the app or shut off bluetooth ect to get it to reconnect or update my steps on the app. Now, it’s a much faster update. I never had any real issues until the company was sold. So now it’s back to working smoothly thanks to the update.

This is probably a pretty low cost to entry if you want to try a smart watch. These things will probably still keep working for the near future.

As mentioned, I bought mine last June. I paid $99. If it works until the end of this year on the services they have, that’s not a bad price to pay.

Or, buy a device that was so high in quality it was bought out by FitBit, costs a fraction of every other smart watch, and works flawless with Android as it currently stands. Will it lose compatibility in the future? Yes, just like everyone other piece of equipment you own.
