The user interface of the Pebble Time will be instantly familiar to owners of the previous model. There is naturally color in the mix now and some really cool-looking animations.
We've prepared a short video of the Pebble Time in action. See it below.
In terms of native apps, the Pebble Time offers the bare minimum. There is a settings menu with various submenus, a music player remote, notifications menu, alarm app, and dedicated menu for watchfaces. Installed apps will appears after the aforementioned few.
The settings menu allows you to tune your Pebble Time, its connectivity and notifications. Two of the buttons on the right can be configured as shortcuts, which activate via long press.
The music remote can be configured to control an app of your choice. You can play, pause, and change tracks and volume.
The notifications menu is self-explanatory. It shows all notifications that your watch has received. You can clear them if you wish.
The alarms menu works as expected. The same goes for the dedicated menu for changing watchfaces.
The overall user experience is minimalistic and fuss-free. If you are looking fro animated emoji or gobs of eye candy in the UI, the Pebble Time will not be a smartwatch for you.
