Pebble 2.3 firmware delivers notification skipping

Pebble Logo 2

Just because Google Wear is stealing the show now in the smartwatch area, doesn’t mean Pebble is out of the game just yet. The company whose successful Kickstarter campaign pushed them onto the wrists of many iOS and Android users recently updated its firmware to v2.3.

While the update brings improved Bluetooth LE connectivity and stability to the platform, one of the major additions, as minor as it seems, is the ability to skip notifications with a double-click. As a Pebble user myself, this is a much needed feature especially when you have a bundle of notifications. Previously, you had to scroll through the entire notification to get to the next one. Now, you can jump to the next notification with a double click if the current requires scrolling to see all of its contents. Pebble notes that as before, if the notification is short and displays entirely on your smartwatch, a single click still takes you to the next one.

To update to the newest firmware, open the Pebble smartphone app then on the side menu, select Support then Check For Updates or Update Your Pebble.
