Pebble Health

Pebble Health is an all new built-in health tracking application available to the Pebble Time family of smartwatches.  Developed by Pebble in collaboration with researchers at Stanford University, Pebble Health will track your daily activity, including steps, distance, and active minutes. Sleep is automatically tracked when you go to bed, displaying sleep, deep sleep, and the times when you fall asleep and wake up. Pebble Health requires firmware 3.8 or above and either the Android Pebble app version 3.8 or iOS Pebble app version 3.5 or above.

Some interesting ideas. Pebble Health integrates into the timeline and lets you see your sleep pattern first thing in the morning and your step regime when you go to sleep. You don't set an arbitrary goal. Instead, Pebble Health shows your progress towards your average performance. If you do a 100 percent every day, you are bound to raise the average. ;-) Pebble Health is available for the new generation of smartwatches and works with both Google Fit and Apple HealthKit.

Users of the original Pebble and Pebble Steel also benefit from an upgrade. When you press the up or down button, you will see a timeline just like on the newer models. You also get support for more apps, which are kept on your smartphone and downloaded as needed. You start the upgrade on those models by installing the Pebble Time app on your phone and removing the old Pebble app. Delete Bluetooth pairing on both the watch and your phone and start your new Pebble Time app, which takes you from there. You will get the timeline, but you will not get Pebble Health. Misfit and UP will continue to work for you.

Good to see, that the pebble team is still working in their product (hardware and software). I am still very satisfied with my decision to buy a pebble from kickstarter months* ago. I am also impressed, that pebble can keep up with much bigger competitors on the market. For me it still fits all my needs I have for a smartwatch.

*(just recognized, that my first pebble watch was from 04/2012 - wow!)

Maybe time to upgrade to a Pebble Time :)

I have tried (and tried) with UP on the original pebble but it has never managed to keep my step count in sync. Oh, and it logs out every 2 weeks!
