Fitbit announced today that it will end its support for Pebble smartwatch ecosystem in June this year - June 30 to be specific. Fitbit says that highlights from the Pebble ecosystem are evolving on the Fitbit platform, including apps and clock faces. You can find out more details about what Fitbit has planned at the link below.
The six-month extension of Fitbit's support for Pebble's infrastructure and web-based features will help the Pebble users assess comparable options on the Fitbit OS platform.
Many of Pebble's features will be sunset, including Pebble's App Store, the Pebble forum, the Pebble cloud development tool, voice recognition features, and SMS and email replies.
"There will be no further updates to Pebble's mobile apps for iOS and Android". After the buyout, members of the Pebble team helped Fitbit develop its own smartwatch OS that debuted on the previous year.
As a matter of compensation, Fitbit is offering Pebble users a $50 (Rs 3,100 approximately) discount on Fitbit Ionic to Pebble users who still own a device with a valid serial number.
Pebble owners with valid serial numbers will be able to get a $50 discount off the Fibit Ionic, and at nearly $300, that discount is appreciated.
Alongside the smartwatches, Pebble's apps, app store, firmware, and API, among other services, will remain accessible until June 30.
Pebble's stay of execution has an end in sight. While the app remains compatible with current smartphone OS versions (Android 8.1 and iOS 11), Fitbit notes that "it's possible for future iOS or Android updates to break Pebble compatibility". But it looks like there is a slight reprieve, a six-month reprieve at that.
In a blog post, the firm wrote: "Pebble users are passionate about their smartwatches". Whether you're kickstarting your fitness journey or ready for the next level, Fitbit products are the leading wearables brand for living a healthier, more active life. Most of that growth will come from Apple Watch sales, but newer players like Fitbit will definitely enjoy some of the tailwinds that this forecast portends.
