As you might have heard, Fitbit has announced that they will be officially ending support for the Pebble watch this month. However the good news is that if you still think that the Pebble smartwatch is a great device that you want to keep using, it seems that it could be getting a second lease on life.
In a tweet by Pebble founder and former CEO Eric Migicovsky (via Engadget), he points Pebble owners towards a website called Rebble. Basically what this new service does is that it will replace certain key pieces of the Pebble ecosystem, such as the appstore, the firmware, and mobile apps. Essentially it sounds like Rebble wants to do what Fitbit won’t.
However the bad news is that Rebble admits that they might not be able to get everything up and running in time before support for the Pebble has come to an end. According to Rebble’s Katharine Berry, “However, Pebble is a complicated system, and we ended up with less time than we had hoped. I still expect that we will have at least some services up and running in time for the cutoff.”
