Pebble Time 韌體大更新!4.0 推出~


DSC_2710Pebble Time 在去年推出後,基本上都是維持一個月更新一次的節奏,不過基本上都還是再改次版號,主板號基本上都還是 3。

而由於第二代的 Pebble 2、Pebble Time 2 也即將推出,所以 Pebble 也終於推車出了大版本的更新,也就是這次的 4.0 版了!目前 App 的部分已經可以透過 Google Play 或 iTunes App Store 來更新了,而在 App 更新後,也就可以更新手錶的韌體了。

官方的公告是:《Unlock Your Best Health, Quick Looks, and Fast Actions with Pebble 4.0 Apps and Firmware》。

這次的更新,在 Android App 的部分其實變化不大,雖然官方還是有一些更新紀錄,但是老實說 Heresy 用起來是覺得沒什麼感覺;相較之下,iOS App 的更新算是比較多的,不過因為 Heresy 沒在用,所以就跳過吧。 :p

在更新了 Android App 後,手錶會跳出不相容、要求升級手錶韌體的畫面(下左圖);此時就要透過新版的 Android App 來進行韌體的更新(使用舊的 App 似乎不會偵測到新韌體)。

而在更新完韌體之後,手表會跳出一個「Pebble Updated!」的通知(上右圖),算是簡單地說明更新後的操作模式。在 Heresy 這邊,更新完之後,本來刷進去的中文語系也都還可以用,並沒有問題。


實際上,在手錶的韌體更新後,基本的操作模式就有一些改變了~在以往的操作設計上,當按下手表右側上下鈕的時候,會直接進入 Timeline、讓使用者可以檢查過去、以及之後的行程。

但是在新的設計裡,按一下「上」會叫出健康 App、而按一下「下」則是進入 Timeline;不過比較奇怪的是,Pebble 似乎把 timeline 的過往行程的檢視功能拿掉了?雖然還是可以按「下」可以看未來的行程,可以卻沒辦法按「上」去看之前的行程。


而在健康 App 的介面,也做了不少的修改。下面就是新界面的畫面:

至於哪個介面好?個人是覺得見仁見智啦~不過,至少現在在這部分,顯示的資訊又變多了,終於又可以顯示一周的紀錄了。


DSC_2714另外,在 Timeline 上,則是加入了「Quick View」、快速顯示的功能。這項功能會在 timeline 上的事件快到的時候(可以設定為 5 – 30 分鐘),在錶面的下方顯示一個簡短的通知;右圖下方的「月會」,就是這個介面的樣子。

此時由於還沒完全離開錶面,所以還可以看到錶面上的主要狀態;而按「下」的話,就可以進入這個事件的細節了~

基本上,這個功能算實用嗎?Heresy 還不曉得,只能說有趣。畢竟,本來這種事件就會有通知了,只是現在除了全畫面的通知外,又多了一個大概 1/3 畫面的提示而已。

要說好處嗎…大概就是可以在不關掉它的情況下、還可以繼續看時間吧?或許,這樣的設計是為了讓使用者可以留著這個通知,等到事件完成後再關掉吧?


除了這兩個內建的功能外,整個 Pebble 4.0 的系統選單,也做了一定程度的修改。

DSC_2709現在在按下右側的選擇鈕(中間的按鈕)後,所開啟的不再是一個畫面一格的功能選單、而是一次可以顯示四項功能的介面~左圖就是進入選單後的畫面。

可以看到,由於圖示縮小了,所以一個畫面可以顯示的東西就變多了;而同時,這些程式也可以在標題下方,再額外顯示簡短的內容。

像是在「Settings」下方就有顯示電量、而「Notifications」下方也可以看到最近一次的通知內容;另外像是天氣的 App,也可以直接在這邊看到相關的資訊、而不必額外把他執行。

再來,「快速啟動」的功能(Quick Launch),現在改成四個鈕都可以設定了~不過基本上還是只能對應到特定的 App 就是了。
