Pebble TaskWatch for Pebble SmartWatch is a set of Pebble SDK 2 watchfaces customizable through Tasker and with full button support.

This is a do-it-yourself app for fine-tuning your watchfaces through Tasker, so a good knowledge of Tasker and some spare time are recommended :-)

You can associate any Tasker task with:
- Top Button Click/Double Click/Long Click

- Bottom Button Click/Double Click/Long Click

You can insert in the watchfaces up to 9 custom text layers updatable from Tasker.

Launcher Watch Face:
If you launch another watch app on Pebble, when you close it Pebble will open the current watchface, and not Pebble TaskWatch, since it is a watchapp and not a watchface. The Launcher is an optional "fake" watchface, that when opened will launch Pebble TaskWatch, or one of the third party watch apps listed above.

Opens up a whole new world for the Pebble*. But! It has it's glitches. I'm writing here since the dev hasn't answered my email. So.. 1. I cannot update text and icon on the same action? I get the one or the other.. 2 . if I flick between showing a couple of icons, hiding them and showing them again, the same 2 icons will blow up to 32x32 every second time?? 3. I have tasks that reset the message counter on the watch every time I open an app for example Gmail. This gives me a toast saying to much text is in the text layer.??!

Finally your Pebble is smart This is the best pebble app by a long way, and allows you to do all of those things that you'd expect to be able to do with an overpriced nerdy gadget but basically couldn't (or at least didn't have time to do). Love it.

Best app ever! Drastically improves functionality of the pebble, I can now access everything from one screen! Tried a few others, and this is more reliable, easier to use, and has more functionality. Just gotta work out if/how I can display my calendar events on the watchface!!
