Timeline software is coming to the original Pebble and Pebble Steel this summer

Timeline coming to Pebble and Pebble Steel

Timeline, Pebble's new software, which organises all your alerts, alarms, reminders, news, apps and messages into chronological order for you to keep track of, is coming to Pebble's previous smartwatches in the summer.

Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky, speaking to Wareable at MWC said: "Timeline UI will be coming to the Pebble and Pebble Steel a couple of months after the Time comes out in May. We're supporting the people who supported us."

Hands on: Pebble Time Steel review

The new software is an update to Pebble's custom smartwatch OS. It seems to be Pebble's attempt to take on Android Wear's useful but flawed Cards system.

The Holy Grail is serving up the most useful information on the smartwatch screen at any time but no-one has cracked it yet. We've yet to fully see how the Apple Watch will tackle this problem.

    I really like the ability to push content from the web to the watch. That's the secret sauce right there. A lot of the custom software projects we are working on (www.MyProgrammer.com) are web related, and I can see a lot of uses for this.

    First off the Pebble devices are not fully compatible with Apple IOS devices. They crash often on the Apple IOS 9.X.X software. The device goes into SOS mode (recovery mode) every few weeks (6-8 weeks). The pebble devices have more updates than any IOS devise I have ever owned. In 4 moths the device required 5 updates, in my opinion that is a little excessive. The apps are clunky and the majority of apps require add on apps to run in the background which in some cases can cost quite a bit on the app store. There are some apps that will not work even with the add on apps. A device that costs around $299.00 (Pebble Time F90A) that keeps crashing with clunky apps, no touch screen and 0 support. I would not consider that an investment.

    Anyone thinking of smartwatch should look at all the options available to them, the Apple smartwatch prices have come down quite a bit and for an extra $100.00 ($399.00) you could be the proud owner of a IOS smart watch with touch screen and a whole lot of better options and features. Samsung has their own version of a smart watch which works a lot better than the 3de party clunky app Pebble watches.
