What happens to my data? Why does the App need access to Pebble Health?
  • The Happiness App is designed to help show you how your sleep, activity, location, and more impact your happiness. Allowing access to Pebble Health allows the app to do this, and don’t worry--Pebble won’t use or share your information for any purpose beyond this app (although we may use anonymous or aggregated data to improve the app and for other internal purposes).

Can I see my data on my watch only? I’d rather it not leave my phone.
  • The Happiness App is designed to collect data through your participation on your Pebble watch, but results will be shown via email only. If you’d rather not participate, please feel free to delete the app, but stay tuned for more Health news on blog.pebble.com

What happens after the week? Can I participate again?
  • Of course! You can re-enroll in the program as many times as you’d like. Just delete the Happiness App from the Apps tab of your Pebble phone app, and reinstall it using the original link. You should be good to go!
