Pebble adds Android Wear notification support with its update to version 2.3
The hugely successful Pebble smartwatch started its life as a Kickstarter crowdfunded device, setting records for the amount of money raised. Once out on its own, the device caught on at Pebble's own website and at Best Buy. Today, Pebble's Android app and its iOS app each received an update and the smartwatch also received a firmware update as well. 

Firmware version 2.9 adds support for Actionable notifications and Android Wear compatibility for those pairing their Pebble with a phone running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. Android users need to update their firmware to version 2.9 before they go into the Google Play Store and update to Pebble version 2.3. The update allows you to have five pre-written replies to notifications and also allows you to reply to a SMS message from your Pebble, using most Android compatible messaging apps. The update will also allow you to receive WhatsApp notifications and it allows for Automatic app and watch face updates when Pebble is idle. And of course, there is the usual bug fixes and stability improvements.

The update to iOS users can be found in the Apple App Store, and takes the app to version 2.6.4. It adds the JavaScript Pebble apps available for iOS users in the Pebble appstore. It also adds bug fixes and stability improvements, but even Pebble admits that there are no major changes from iOS 2.6.
