Pebble SDK 3.0 now available with Pebble Time support
Pebble has just announced that the developer preview for the Pebble SDK 3.0 is now available. Developers can now begin crafting their new apps for the Pebble Time with support for new hardware features like a color screen and a built-in microphone. The resolution for the Time hasn’t changed (144×168), though the available app memory has been increased to 64kB in the new SDK.
Here are some additional features Pebble has laid out for us:
- Support for 64 colors which all have a name!
- A brand new animation framework
- PNG and Animated PNG support in the SDK
- Detecting which platforms you are building for at compile time
- Much more to come!
The Pebble team has also announced that all current Pebble apps will work on the Time, with only a few minor changes needed.
If you’re just hearing about the Pebble Time for the first time, it’s a new color-screened watch from the makers of the original Pebble that just launched on Kickstarter the other day. At the time of writing this, the Pebble Time has racked up over $11 million with over 50 thousand backers with 28 days to go in their Kickstarter campaign. The Pebble Time features a new color e-paper display, a new version of the Pebble OS, and boasts up to seven days of battery life.
