Enjoy! And if any DIY solutions sound intimidating for you, go to a tech repair shop and they’ll do it for you. But the future for hardware is getting even better than that!
These are largely Pebble 2 with heart rate issues. I have 3 Pebble Time watches, so no problems. Never bought a used one.

Don’t worry; make awesome happen! And sleep well with a Pebble on your wrist. I will never abandon perfection.


P.S. – I get my heart rate from a BTLE armband instead, the Scosche Rhythm 24. Extremely accurate and works well for several nights in a row without charging. Remember to keep the contacts clean with isopropyl alcohol, and use water and a gentle soapy mix for the optical sensors. Then gently rinse with your fingers. About every couple weeks.

DO NOT IMMERSE YOUR WATCH, THOUGH. Just don’t! Nothing is actually “waterproof.” Trust me and John Cameron Swayze. LOL This is about a heart monitor.

Spring 2020 (Lockdown Time, historically) Pebble UPDATE:
NEW Pebble Times and Time Steels (and even a couple of NEW 14" band Time Rounds!) available from Amazon!

As with all Pebbles, they can be customized to look as rugged or dainty as you wish. (Although the Time Round with 14" band is designed to be women-specific, you can ruggedize it, I suppose.)

New (April 13, 2020) blog post with more good news!

Google Play Pebble—Rebble Helper App, especially for new watches:

Just follow those instructions to install the Rebble/Pebble OS/appstore on your phone, and then, in “apps” in the Pebble Store, search for “Sleep As Android” and install the watch companion app on your phone.

Yes! In 2020!!! You won’t find a better wearable for Sleep As Android.

And if you are a developer, do read the blog posts carefully because access to development for Pebble/Rebble has returned! (They still have more work to do on this front, but it’s accessible again!) If you want to know just HOW up-to-date the development space is, check out THIS app! Hand Wash Timer

As for new hardware, not yet, but hardware specialists have been working very hard on that front. If you need to change your battery, go to Pebble Junkies on Facebook for assistance. People are now able to get and install new batteries!!!

Pebbles are the little watches that could!!! Someone really should make a movie about this. The watch loved so much that it wasn’t allowed to die! “It’s alive! It’s alive!”
It’s Alive

Will be back at this space when more news appears.
