Good news has arrived today if you own a Pebble smartwatch and use Android as the Pebble app has been updated to version 2.3. The latest update brings support for interacting with Android Wear notifications, set up defined replies and the ability to reply directly from your Pebble through Android SMS apps.

Here’s the full change log:

Android Wear Notifications. Reply and act on Android Wear notifications (requires Firmware v2.9+). See http://pbl.io/f for full details.
Pebbler-defined replies. Set your own replies to notifications (up to 5, so get creative, buddy!).
Reply from Pebble using most Android-compatible SMS messaging apps
Automatic app and watchface updates when Pebble is idle.
Support for Android 4.0+ devices
Fixed Issues with Whatsapp notifications
UTF-8 support in PebbleKit JS
Bug fixes and stability improvements

The update itself is pretty awesome as you can see and the best part is definitely the Android Wear support. Other good news is that any apps with Android Wear integration should be good to go and users should be able to receive notifications from it without any trouble.

Pebble users should also be prompted to do.a firmware update bringing the watch to version 2.9. The firmware update is obviously necessary to enable the watch to interact with Android Wear notifications. It also comes with a load of bug fixes so be sure to get updating.
