Pebble is bringing its new Pebble Time 3.0 operating system from the Pebble Time to the older Pebble Classic. The update will bring he new timeline to the older devices, and also remove the limitation on the number of apps that can be running at the same time. At the moment, the system update is being opened to beta testing on Android; but the company says that the final release should be coming later this month.
Timelime is a complete redesign features an interface geared towards displaying information based on when they happen. It functions much like a calendar or daily planner, and has been well received by fans of the smartwatch. Pebble had originally promised to bring support for Pebble Time 3.0 to its older devices, and it looks like the company is making good on its promise. Which is a nice gesture considering how many people still use their original Pebbles.
The cap on the number of running apps has also been removed. The early edition of Pebble was limited to eight apps running simultaneously, which was presumably implemented due to hardware limitations. However, it looks like Pebble has managed to work around the problem and user will be able to launch as many apps as they want; and slowing the performance of their device like the rest of us do.
At the moment, the software is being tested in a closed beta by a handful of users on Android. Pebble says that the limitations placed by Apple on the App Store means that it cannot offer the beta to iOS users. That being said, the final Pebble Time 3.0 will be available for both Android and iOS users when it is publicly launched later this month.
