Pebble Battery Life

Last Updated: Jun 21, 2013 04:43PM PDT
Pebble's battery should last between 5-7 days, depending on the number of notifications received per day and use of the backlight. However, we're seeing reports of Pebble battery lasting from 2-7 days. It seems to be related to the variety of different Bluetooth connections on different phones. The first thing we're working on is improving the battery logging and how Pebble alerts you when the battery is almost empty. Then we'll move to improving battery life across the board.

At the moment, the indicator can be found in the top right corner of the launcher:
The low battery indicator is not visible on watchfaces. It is only appears on the launch and notifications.

Here is a breakdown of the different symbols you will see:
 - The battery is full
 - The battery is low: when you reach this symbol you will have ~ 12 - 20 hours left for this charge
 - The battery is empty: you will need plug Pebble in to charge immediately
 - Your Pebble is plugged in and charging from a low battery state
 - Your Pebble is plugged in and approximately halfway through a complete charge cycle

 
Charge your Pebble until the battery indicator shows it's full  . Charging from a depleted state to a full battery should take between 2 - 3 hours. 
 
Please note: the icons will only be present at those levels; ie. if your battery has more than 20 hours remaining but is not at full charge, there will not be an icon present.

 
Watchfaces
One of the best features about Pebble is the ability to customize it. Watchfaces can be downloaded from within your Pebble app or several 3rd party sharing websites.
You can easily download and scroll through up to 8 stored watchfaces.

Music app
Select the Music app from Launcher to control music playing on your smartphone. Currently, on Android Pebble can control the default music app and Google music. On iOS, Pebble can control Music, Pandora, Spotify and any other music app that implements default music controls.

Phone calls
Pebble vibrates when you receive an incoming phone call and the phone number will be displayed if you have caller-ID. If the caller is in your address book, Pebble will display the name of the caller.  From your Pebble, you can accept the call (iOS only), reject the call (Down button), or dismiss the notification (Back Button).
Pebble does not have a speaker, so the call will be accepted on the handset, Bluetooth headset or car kit.

​Message Notifications
Pebble vibrates and display SMS and iMessages. If the sender is in your smartphone address book, Pebble will display the name of the sender. If the content of the message is more than can be displayed at once on the Pebble screen, you can scroll through the message using the Up and Down buttons.
To exit the app or dismiss the message, press the Back button.
