This new app helps Pebble watches continue working with new Android phones
The new Sideload Helper app from the Rebble project makes it much easier to install apps on Pebble watches from newer Android phones.

Pebble was one of the first modern smartwatches when it launched on Kickstarter in 2012 (I still have mine). It became popular for its long battery life, massive library of applications, and open software, and was later followed up by several more models. Pebble shut down in 2016 after running out of funds, but not before the company updated its watches to continue functioning without a central server. The community-run ‘Rebble’ project has continued to keep the watches alive with updated software, and now Rebble has released a new app to keep Pebble watches functional on newer devices.

Dam I got overly excited and thought that Rebble volunteers may have finally finished their mobile app. I’m excited for them to finish it so that there will finally be a fully-featured open source client made completely for Pebble, although I’m content with GadgetBridge’s compatibility.
