New update sent out for Pebble smartwatch; version 1.10 supports third party watch faces
A couple of options were added to disable annoying little things. For example, Pebble owners can now disable the backlight that would turn on when the accelerometer kicked in. And the vibrating motor can now be disabled so it doesn't make that machine-like noise when a notification comes in. When you perform a factory-reset on the Pebble, it will now remove all non-system apps and watch faces, and the pop-up that reads "Allow Pebble to communicate..." in iOS will appear less frequently.
It is a long list to be sure, but if Pebble is going to still be around once the big guns like Apple, Google, LG and the others start muscling into the smartwatch business, Pebble needs to take advantage of this head start they have worked so hard to create to put out nothing but the best product. There is no question that owners love the watch itself and so far, it seems as though Pebble is taking care of business.

Pebble's biggest advantage is it's E-ink display which provides long lasting batteries and good visibility.. I just hope that it can get its market wide enough to let other consumers know about it.... and I want to buy it in Malaysia T_T

sorry folks, but I just dont buy the idea of smart watch.. I believe that sometimes you just have to stick with your roots.. old school analogue watch for me therefore - the best choice and these toys might fit for kids, not adults.. :) a

I'm 45 and I would use one instead of an analog watch, except I don't wear watches. Can't stand the feeling.
