Pebble Smartwatch App News for Users of Windows Phone Devices
A Pebble Smartwatch app is welcome for Windows Phone users. Now they get two apps for Windows Phone. The popularity of Pebble smartwatches is high. That is why the news of two apps available on the Windows Phone Store is great. The apps are unofficial ones. Their functionality is somewhat limited. That is due to the limitations of the OS. We hope that in the near future there will be an official Pebble Smartwatch app.
The first Pebble Smartwatch app is called Pebble Watch Pro. It costs $1.99 and can be downloaded from here. For it users need firmware version 1.14 of their Pebble smartwatches. The app enables users to get calendar, battery, Twitter, and network alerts. Together with the alerts they get on their Pebble smartwatches, they can also control music playback on their Windows Phone devices from their smartwatches. There is a downside to the app. The Pebble Smartwatch app should be run in the foreground. Then it can communicate with the watch. The lock screen has to be disabled.
The second Pebble smartwatch app is called Pebble. It costs $.99. It lets users add apps to their smartwatches. They download apps from a Pebble watch related website. Users can also remove installed apps. They can synchronize their Pebble smartwatch and Windows Phone device. Ihe Pebble app is available for Windows Phone 8 only. The Pebble app can be downloaded from here.
Besides these two Pebble Smartwatch apps, there are two more apps that are a little related. One of them is Pebble Watch Lite which can be downloaded from here. It is a free app and lets users control music on their Windows Phone devices from their Pebble smartwatches. With it they can also test notification features on their Pebble smartwatches. The Pebble Music app is available for downloading here. It is a music player for Windows Phone devices which is styled like a Pebble Smartwatch.
