Update to Pebble Time adds new features to the smartwatch
The new Pebble Time smartwatch has received an update to version 3.2, which brings a whole bunch of new features and capabilities to the timepiece. In addition, the watch's Android app has also been updated in the Google Play Store. Pebble Time recently launched after raising over $20 million on Kickstarter, setting a new record for the site

So what can you expect from the update? Users will be able to change the font size in notifications, layouts and in other areas. You can also adjust the intensity of the backlight and make changes to vibration settings for calls and alerts. It should be noted that the default vibration setting is not as strong as it was in the previous software version.

The music player for Android users is improved with support for music streamers like Pandora and Spotify, and changes have been made to the notification system. Android users can use the search bar to find saved apps and watch faces in the My Pebble Menu. Pebble has improved the method for setting up a long pre-written response to notifications. And instead of having to go back into settings after every update to the Android app, notification preferences are now saved.

To update your Pebble Time, go to Menu > Support > Update your Pebble. The Android app can be updated from the Google Play Store.

Ugh. Still want one but I can't justify $200 for it. I already bought a Pebble Classic for $50 and a LG G Watch also for $50. I can't convince myself that a Pebble Time is $150 better than what I paid for a LG G Watch...

I have one and really love it. It's the right amount of function, and thank god the screen is always on. Plus, i really love the endless number of fun watch faces that users continue to generate. I kinda thought it looked dorky in pictures, but when I got it, it is so much smaller and non-obtrusive in person (especially when compared with the original).
