Update to Pebble adds new features, improves others
The watch has received a firmware update, to version 1.14. One of the new features is a Do Not Disturb setting that blocks notifications from reaching the watch screen. The Alarm app has received an update allowing you to create multiple alarms, toggle them on and off, and edit existing alarms. You can also hit the snooze button to get an extra few minutes of rest. Go ahead! You earned it.
Notifications settings now have a dedicated menu, and you can decide which notifications are to be displayed. Speaking about notifications, those coming from an iOS device will now reach the Pebble smartwatch faster. And coming off of airplane mode, the watch will now look for an iOS signal immediately instead of waiting for a minute.
What is an update without bug fixes? This one brings a few to the watch including a fix for the never ending vibration that some experienced after dismissing or ending a call. A few deal with Bluetooth connectivity and missing Caller ID information. To get the update, open the Pebble iOS or Android app.
There are a couple of other notes.One is that beta version 3 of the Pebble SDK 2.0 is now available for developers and includes bug fixes, stability improvements and more. Finally, the Jet Black and Cherry Red Pebbles are now available (in time for the holiday) from the Pebble web site (Getpebble.com).

Still waiting for a good and cheap standalone smart watch

Standalone, as in does not need to connect to your device through Bluetooth. Basically a smartphone on your wrist

I'm not sure if anyone understands what I am trying to say. I want a smartphone on my wrist, not a notification center

You are saying it correctly, they just don't get. However, what you want won't be available for a while. They have to be able to squeeze radio and all its components into a smaller chassis.

If I'm not mistaken, Samsung already made one a few years ago, just that it's not that popular. So smart watches have been around for a long time

Cheap and standalone don't really go together as of yet.
