The update also allows you to monitor your battery in a more consistent fashion, and improves the reliability of Bluetooth when reconnecting. The update also fixes caller ID issues, while offering specific bug fixes.

The Android app update for Pebble, version, offers a Hotfix for an issue that was causing  the watch to crash after booting up. And the iOS update, to version 2.1.3, allows more javascript apps to be downloaded from the App Store. Both iOS and Android versions of streaming music app Pandora, can now be loaded on the Pebble timepiece. You can add Pandora to your wearable, directly from the Pebble appstore.

Only time will tell if Pebble will become the most successful product to be funded on Kickstarter. The watch raised $10 million in crowd-sourced funding, which might have predicted the success that Pebble has had in a crowded smartwatch market.
