Pebble Battery for DashClock

Pebble Battery for DashClock


** You should reinstall the watchapp from the settings activity if updating **

An extension to display your Pebble (with >2.0 firmware) current battery level in the excellent DashClock lock screen widget.

When adding the extension, make sure to open the preferences activity to install the companion watchapp.

Alternatively, directly open the link below in your Android browser if you encounter difficulties.

(NB: Pebble is only capable of reporting very coarse-grained battery estimates, in practice battery level may vary unexpectedly)

Follow Shaughan Lavine' s Advice Followed this advise even to downloading the phone app from elsewhere and it does work.

Very useful! 4 out of 5 stars because it was difficult to install: I could only install the Android app through Chrome, not the Store, and I could only install the watch app through the link provided above, under "READ MORE," not through the Android app settings. Once I managed to figure all that out, I enabled it in DashClock, and it works well.

Chronus no luck but great idea Have been trying to get past the 'Install watchapp' screen to use this with Chronus flex. Anyone had luck??

Made no change at all to my phone's UI If this requires some more setup, it needs more/better instructions.
