A recent survey showed that Pebble is one of two companies ruling the U.S. smartwatch market. That didn’t come as a surprise since Pebble smartwatches really are quite popular and some of the best performing wearable devices available in the market right now. Its millions of users will be pleased that a new Pebble firmware update has been pushed out. An update for the companion iOS application has also been released.
The Pebble firmware version 2.3 update has been rolled out over-the-air and is available for all Pebble smartwatch models. Pebble’s latest firmware update brings the usual slew of stability improvements as well as improved Bluetooth LE connectivity. It adds a new feature which will allow users to skip a notification with a double-click.
This new feature lets users quickly jump to the next notification when the one they’re viewing at that particular moment requires scrolling to view the entire content. A double-click of the button is all that is needed to skip ahead. If the notification is small enough that it shows on Pebble’s display then a single-click will take users to the next notification.
The Pebble iOS app can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store.
