PebbleOS 1.14.1 has just gone live for the Pebble smartwatch. The new firmware update includes a bunch of new features and bug fixes for the popular smartwatch which works with both iPhone and Android devices.
One of the highlights of the new update is the iOS-like Do Not Disturb option, which as you would expect allows users to block notifications for a set period of time. Some of the other features include:
- New Alarm options: You can now set multiple alarms, toggle them on and off, edit existing alarms and customize snooze functions for the alarm.
- New Notification options: Apart from the already mentioned Do Not Disturb mode, you can now set notifications to Notifications On, Phone Calls Only, or Notifications Off.
- Improved performance with iPhone: Fix for notifications lag issue; connects to iPhone immediately instead of waiting for a minute after exiting the Airplane mode on the iPhone.
- A whole bunch of bug fixes for Caller ID and Bluetooth issues etc.
Full list of changes can be found over at the official Pebble blog here.
