Pebble Says Services Will Be Live Through 2017

Pebble has released a new blog post that details its “first steps forward with Fitbit” after bring bought by Fitbit. In the blog post, Pebble said that users can expect that Pebble software and services will continue to be supported through 2017:

Fitbit is going out of its way to keep Pebble software and services running through 2017. To be clear, no one on this freshly-formed team seeks to brick Pebble watches in active service. The Pebble SDK, CloudPebble, Timeline APIs, firmware availability, mobile apps, developer portal, and Pebble appstore are all elements of the Pebble ecosystem that will remain in service at this time. Pebble developers are welcome to keep creating and updating apps. Pebble users are free to keep enjoying their watches.

The blog post further goes on to state that the company’s first action to preserve the Pebble experience into the future will be to update its mobile apps and loosen their dependency on a “patchwork of cloud services”. Plus developers are jumping in to keep the Pebble experience going. This should be interesting to watch and see if this actually happens.
