Pebble watches get text replies for iPhone owners on Verizon

Pebble owners with iPhones on Verizon can now reply to text messages straight from their smartwatch. The iOS text reply feature, which works with any Pebble, allows you to set up reply messages to send back to a contact, though you can also respond with emoji. Additionally, owners of Pebble Time-series watches can reply with voice notes.

From Pebble{.nofollow}:

Pebblers in the US with a Verizon contract can use iOS Text Reply from any Pebble smartwatch. After getting set up, incoming iOS and Verizon Messages can be responded to with a voice note (Time-Series watches only), emoji, or custom text reply.

All of this comes with the 3.11 Pebble firmware, which itself comes with the latest version of Pebble's app. The update also adds vibration customization, and improves sleep tracking.

iPhone text replies launched for Pebble smartwatches late last year for AT&T customers.
