Cloud services Pebble smart watch was supposed to be closed at the end of 2017, but Fitbit has extended support gadgets absorbed start-up to June 30. The company also told us what functions will shut off after that date. Why wait?

After the end of support will cease to function, voice recognition and service for developers CloudPebble. On iOS will have to say goodbye to send quick responses to text messages and email. Third-party software will no longer withdraw its notifications directly to the tape Timeline (weather, scores, etc.). Finally, will be closed the official app store and the Pebble forum.

Users only need to monitor the work of the team Rebble, which plans to create alternative firmware and store (although the app you can manually install by downloading the PBW file and opening it on your smartphone). What is a Fitbit?

The company claims that hundreds of developers for Pebble are already working on versions of their apps for Fitbit OS — a new platform, which is used in watches Fitbit Ionic.
