Wish your Pebble Time smartwatch was easier to read in low light, or didn't shake so violently that everyone can tell when you have new messages? Your wishes have been answered. Pebble is trotting out a firmware update for the Time (and Time Steel, when it ships) that lets you tweak the intensities of both the backlight and the vibration motor, so you won't have to squint or apologize for noises. You can also go for a larger font size, in case your vision isn't what it used to be.Oh, and don't fret if you're a classic Pebble owner -- the company hasn't forgotten about you. It's promising to give both the original Pebble and the Pebble Steel an update to the timeline-based interface sometime later this year. The lack of a firm schedule isn't much consolation if your Time-toting friends are bragging about their software experience, but you won't be stuck with that old code.
