Frequently Asked Questions

What is Pebble Health?
Pebble Health tracks activity and sleep, providing you sliced-and-diced data that’s easy to understand. Developed by Pebble in collaboration with researchers at Stanford University, Pebble Health gives you everything you need to be your happiest, healthiest self.   
Users of our Time family and more recent watches can track activity and sleep, while Time 2 and Pebble 2 HR users get the added benefit of heart rate tracking.  Graphs in the Pebble app give you a detailed view your progress over time, and your watch gives you real-time information and helpful fitness notifications.

For help setting up Pebble Health, please see the section below.  For specific questions or help troubleshooting Health features, please see one of the following sections:

Frequently Asked Questions
Which watches will this work on?

  • ​For Pebble Classic and Pebble Steel we recommend users download and use third party activity trackers.
Will health info transfer between my watches if I wear one during the day and one during workouts?
  • Yes, your data will be pushed from your phone to the second watch, so you can swap styles without losing data.
Does Pebble Health affect battery life?
  • Pebble Health is very efficient and should use less battery than other third party fitness trackers. Please note, running two activity trackers will increase battery drain, and is not recommended.
Do I have to wear my watch for it to track my sleep?
