The best Pebble Time apps

Here's our pick of the best apps for your Pebble smartwatch, helping you do everything from tracking your sleep to remembering to buy some milk – and a whole lot in between.

Pebble Time has brought the new Timeline UI which CEO Eric Migicovsky previously told Wareable about. The new interface is also now available on the Pebble Classic, as it's now known, and the Pebble Steel as of December last year.

Remember, all apps will work on Pebble Time but, if you're rocking an original monochrome Pebble, you won't be able to use the new colour apps found on the Time and Pebble Time Round.

Speaking of the Round, apps are still being configured for the circular interface since not all of them are compatible but there are 150 apps and around 400 watch faces available so far, including most of the ones below.

The availability of Pebble Health has also allowed native step, distance, time spent active and sleep tracking. Now all of it is more accurate thanks to the latest firmware update.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out our best Pebble apps list and get downloading now....(you'll find all of these apps within the Pebble app store on your smartphone companion)

Pebble Health

Pebble Health isn't just a new platform from the company - it's also an app you can use for activity tracking and more, as mentioned above.

Once you click onto the Pebble Health app on your smartwatch, you can cycle through four main screens. First is your daily steps, main sleep stats, then a weekly version of the each. So, there's one for weekdays and one for weekends which we love because chances are both your step count and sleeping habits will alter between the two. Or maybe you wear your Pebble every weekday but not so much on weekends.

UP for Pebble

Jawbone's UP range of fitness bands are amongst the best we've tested, but this Pebble watch face ditches the need for one. Using the built-in sensors, UP for Pebble tracks your steps, calories burned and sleep, giving you glanceable info on your wrist about how far you're off meeting your targets. All this data is then sent back to the fantastic UP app on iOS and Android, for further inspection. Weirdly, this is classed as a watch face rather than an app, so search for it in that section.

Fully revamped and in sparkling 8-bit colour for the new Pebble Time range, TripAdvisor does exactly what you'd expect - using your current location to recommend restaurants, bars and other attractions. User reviews are, of course, on board and there's also a nice navigation mode that will point you in the direction of your chosen establishment without the need to ever get your phone out of your pocket.


Uber wasn't first to get its Pebble app out but it's one of the biggest names on the app store. It makes use of the Pebble Time's colour screen with big, bold alerts to keep you on top of your minicab ordering.

You can open the app then hold the Pebble's middle button to call a cab to your current location or select from a number of favourite locations. Once ordered, there's also a map to track your driver as it arrives.


Evernote is an awesome note collecting app that works on nearly every platform, including Pebble. Don't expect quite as many features as the desktop and smartphone counterparts, that would just be unnecessary, but do expect a great way to track your reminders and to-do lists. All your notebooks are accessible and you can even search through your saved tags.


Download the companion app then get going with Awear's great little messaging app. Well, technically it's a watch face but Pebble puts it in the app category so there we go. For texts, choose from pre-set replies that you can customise, mark emails as read, archived or starred on your wrist and with Google Calendar integration, you can send an 'I'm late' message to the person you're meeting in two button clicks. Smart vibrations mean that you'll know if its a text or an email too.


Paying for your lunch with just a swipe of your watch is very much a thing, thanks to PayPal. Once logged in, you can use the app to pay for items where PayPal is already accepted (Gourmet Burger Kitchen, for example) by showing the QR code that appears on the display. You'll need to pair this up with the PayPal smartphone app to get it working.

IFTTT Launcher

A seriously simple app - just choose three of your IFTTT recipes in your companion app to trigger straight from your Pebble Time's buttons to control your smart home. That's it. No fiddling around, just quick controls.


Designed to be used with your phone's GPS, the popular RunKeeper Pebble app lets you check on your stats like pace and distance using your smartwatch. To download this app you need to have the RunKeeper app on your phone already. Initiating a run in your mobile app auto-opens the Pebble app and pausing an activity is as simple as pressing the middle button while you're in the RunKeeper screen. Still, when you want to stop, it's back to your phone.

A cool feature of Pebble Time apps is that they can be integrated right into the Pebble Timeline UI. With Battery+ you'll not only see how much battery you've got left - percentage and time metrics - you'll also get notifications in your Timeline of the last time your watch was charged, an estimate of when it will need plugging in again and an average use per day figure. There's also a detailed graph mode that lets you know when you're hammering the power the most.

Get Up, Stand Up

This wonderfully named app allows your Pebble Time to mimic a great feature that's found on the Apple Watch and Garmin watches - reminding you to get up and walk around when you've been sat down too long.

Deskbound Pebble wearers can set the app to automatic mode to set the frequency of alerts e.g. every 20 minutes, how long you want to stand for each time and which days you need the reminders, Monday to Friday, say.

Pixel Miner

best pebble apps

A new and improved colour version of the most popular game for Pebble Time users, Pixel Miner is the work of dev and consultant Will Luton. The aim is to help your man well, dig pixels which you can spend on better equipment to dig quicker. It's nonsense really. Absolutely addictive nonsense.


Another smart home control app, Leaf is specifically for Nest's devices - its Learning Thermostat and Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm specifically. Leaf is part of the Works with Nest program and offers handy, coloured icons to check the status of your home tech and quickly adjust the temperature and modes.


GoPro cameras can be remote controlled via your smartphone but now you can control this using your Pebble watch. It's compatible with GoPro's Hero3, Hero3+ White, Silver and Black and Hero4 cameras.

Start and stop action cam recordings, tweak settings and browse menus. There's no direct control or a live feed yet but it offers you what you most want on your wrist when things get gnarly.


Top Pebble watch apps

Want to get in on the Misfit action without splashing the cash for a Shine or a Flash? No problem - the Misfit app for Pebble has just been updated, bringing in a whole host of new activity tracking features. It syncs up with the iOS and Android Misfit apps and tracks metrics such as calories burned, sleep slept and distance travelled. And we're told this is just the start of an all out Misfit assault on Pebble. Exciting times.

Cards for Pebble

Far more than just offering a single function, this app boasts everything from a calendar, RSS reader, sports scores, world clock and it'll let you know how long it's going to take you to drive to work. Cycling through all the options is easy using the hardware buttons on the Pebble and the clean, readable digital clock makes this a must-have. The main advantage here is that it gets around Pebble's eight app rule but on the Pebble Time, you can store as many apps as you like.

Domino's Pizza tracker

If you're a US based Pebbler who's also partial to Domino's takeaway pizza, this is app for you. Once you've placed your order through the iOS or Android app, the Pebble companion will keep you updated with the movements of your dinner, from when it enters the oven to when it's about to arrive at your door. This is exactly what the wearable revolution needs more of.

If your Twitter feed barely goes ten minutes without a refresh, Twebble is here to bring some social network action to your wrist. Scrolling your timeline is surprisingly easy and it's a great way to check the latest news, photos are probably best avoided though, at least until we see a colourful update.

Instead of waking you up every morning with a shrill hiss, this clever smart alarm helps you rise from slumber over a period of time. Fully updated for the Time devices, simply put in the earliest and latest times you need to wake up and the app will do the rest. It also uses the Pebble's accelerometer to track your sleep patterns and beam the results to your phone and will even sync with Apple's HealthKit platform, Misfit and UP apps, Philips Hue and LIFX smart bulbs and IFTTT. There's also a pin for 'bed now' if you want to integrate that to your Pebble Timeline.

Music Boss

Best Pebble apps for Pebble Steel

While the Pebble OS does natively support switching music tracks, it is nowhere near as useful as loading up Music Boss. Automatically sensing which music app you use is a great feature, as is the ability to launch it straight from the watch, but there's little quite as satisfying as using it as a remote control for your Chromecast. It's £1.21 from Google Play.

Pebble Locker

Best Pebble apps for Pebble Steel

One of our favourite Pebble additions, Locker adds an extra layer of security to your precious smartphone. When your smartwatch is connected, it'll let you bypass the lockscreen on your phone, saving you vital seconds and ditching the need to enter your pin or password every time. Pebble disconnected? It'll revert back and once again require a pin or swipe to unlock.

If you've kitted your humble abode out with a load of Hue bulbs, then you'll know how annoying it becomes having to reach for your phone every time you want to alter your settings or even just turn them off. The whole process is made much more simple with Huebble, giving you wrist based access to all your presets and lighting controls.


Best Pebble apps for Pebble Steel

If you've already got a Pebble taking up precious real estate on your wrist, chances are you'd rather do without having to have another band for tracking your steps. Thankfully Movable turns your Pebble into a pedometer, calorie counter and personal trainer without the need for any extra accessories. Much like devices from the likes of Jawbone and Fitbit, you can set daily goals and targets.

    It's great to see Morpheuz mentioned here but you've got some quite out of date screenshots. If you'd like to see what it looks like now have a look at:

  • bdlfromFB says:

    There is still no android app support for UP so nothing you put on your pebble will ever see the UP app. Additionally, as it is a watchface, I don't believe it does any tracking *unless* it is your watchface, unlike the Misfit app. So far, I think UP is kind of a fail for the Pebble.

    • DavidMcAfee42 says:

      UP does have background activity tracking despite only being a watchface. It has iOS support at the moment, I believe Android support is coming soon.

      • jml says:

        Actually it does but it doesn't sync anything captured in that fashion, there is an 18 page thread on the pebble forums about how the Up watchface does not sync accurately any time that Up is not the active watchface on the device. It's been a very disappointing implementation so far, which is bad, the Misfit app has some step counting accuracy problems and the Up face is much better in this respect but if it can't count and sync accurately while in the background, it is a pretty big fail in my opinion. 

  • rzky says:

    Careful with the Smartwatch Plus. There's several apps that has a similar name with similar functionality as well.

  • Kathcobcroft says:

    Up doesn't currently track sleep through the Pebble, you have to enter it manually. Misfit does fairly well - it has a go at deep vs light sleep - but doesn't seem to like tracking multiple sleep segments with gaps in between (eg when I get up for my toddler and stay awake for a while afterwards). I believe you lose the sleep quality info if you adjust the sleep manually in Misfit.

  • DevilDogA99 says:

    please help, can't find pebble steel on the pebble store. I really would like said app, that is mentioned in this list. 

    • Wyvernspirit says:

      The Pebble Steel is hardware not an app.  It's a model of the pebble watch made out of metal instead of plastic.

      • m0deki says:


  • markkelly505 says:

    Yes!  Best suggested collection apps i have seen to date!'


    • donjoe says:

      ... though it's pretty strange to not see Notification Center on the list, as it's probably the most widely appreciated Pebble app, bringing valuable improvements to the most important smartwatch functionality.

    • donjoe says:

      ... except it doesn't mention what is possibly the most useful and most widely appreciated Pebble app: Notification Center.

  • lizzee says:

    does the pebble watch sync with Fitbit? 

  • swazzy499 says:

    I think I am sending my Pebble Time Steel back if I ever get it... Not impressed.

    • gman_____ says:

      you can trade it in for a pebble time round. i finally got mine the other day and then the new watches came out and believe me i was pissed, but I'm going to order the new watch and when i send the old one back there supposed to refund the money spend on the round.

  • VMS says:

    OnFit is a great alternative for UP with Pebble Health integration across all your Pebble devices and a good calorie counting component.

  • qurk says:

    Great list!  I just got my Pebble Time, upgraded from OG Pebble.  I would suggest Endomondo as walk/run activity tracker.  It lets you choose many other activities, and keeps track of your walks/workouts from it's web or phone UI.  I started using it a few years ago and it's Pebble app lets you start/stop/pause your walk.

  • pebbleRoundHELP says:

    is pixel miner for pebble time round?!?!

    Please I'm thinking about getting it and that's the desiring factor/ is it coming to round?
