pebble2How it works
Pebble connects by Bluetooth (2.1+ EDR and 4.0) to your iPhone or Android device. Setting up Pebble is as easy as downloading the Pebble app onto your phone. All software updates are wirelessly transmitted to your Pebble.

Compatibility
iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5 or any iPod Touch with iOS 5 or iOS 6. (iOS 5 and iPhone 3GS have restricted feature sets). Android devices running OS 2.3 and up. Works great with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)!

Unfortunately Pebble does not work with Blackberry, Windows Phone 7, or Palm phones at this time.

Terminology
The Main Menu is where you can scroll through to select which app you would like to use or setting you would like to manage.

Pebble has four buttons. The left button is called the ‘back‘ button, which is used for returning to the previous screen or entering your watchface app from the main menu. On the right side, the top and bottom (‘up‘ and ‘down‘) buttons generally are used for scrolling through lists. The center button is used to ‘select‘ an item in a list or start an app on Pebble. It can also be used to get to the main menu from a watchface.
The charger connects magnetically with the charging port on the left side below the back button.
   The Pebble App is the smartphone app that must be downloaded on your Android or iPhone.

Battery Life
Pebble’s battery should last between 5-7 days, depending on the number of notifications received per day, type of apps used, and the use of the backlight. The indicator can be found in the top right corner of the menu screens and notifications. The low battery indicator is not visible on watchfaces.

Here is a breakdown of the different symbols you will see:

 - The battery is full
 - The battery is low: when you reach this symbol you will have ~ 12 – 20 hours left for this charge
 - The battery is empty: you will need plug Pebble in to charge immediately
 - Your Pebble is plugged in and charging from a low battery state
 - Your Pebble is plugged in and approximately halfway through a complete charge cycle
Charge your Pebble until the battery indicator shows it’s full  . Charging from a depleted state to a full battery should take approximately 3 hours.

​​

Please note: the icons will only be present at those levels; ie. if your battery has more than 20 hours remaining but is not at full charge, there will not be an icon present.

You can easily download and scroll through up to 8 stored watchfaces.

Phone calls
Pebble vibrates when you receive an incoming call and displays number if you have caller-ID. If the caller is in your address book, Pebble will display the name instead.
On iOS, you can accept (Up button), reject (Down button), or dismiss the notification (Back button).
On Android, you can silence the call (Down button) or dismiss the notification (Back button).
Pebble does not have a speaker, so the call will be accepted on the handset, Bluetooth headset or car kit.
