Pebble has developed a new update to its Android and iOS companion applications for its smartwatch to include the new Pebble app store and announced that the app update will be rolling out on this Monday.
Until now, the Pebble smartwatch owners were downloading the apps and watchfaces from third party sites such as pebblebarn and mypebblefaces. Now, once the companion apps gets updated at the Google Play Store (here) and iOS App Store (here), the users have to pair the smartwatch with their devices via Bluetooth and follow the instructions to download the Pebble app store software from the paired “smart” devices.
Now with the new app store, Pebble owners can manage the tons of app-choices easily, while they can only install up to 8 applications at a time. There are some important apps available for the Pebble such as GoPro, Foursquare, Yelp, ESPN, health-fitness and weather apps along with the new generation of watchfaces.
Few days ago, Pebble revealed the “Steel” smartwatch with all-metal body along with the 2 styles – Matte Black and Brushed Stainless Steel. The company will begin shipping of the new Pebble Steel in February 2014 for $249, i.e., late this month.
