Pebble’s keeping its smartwatch fresh, and the company recently announced yet another update that brings new features and improvements to the device.

PebbleOS v.1.14 includes a do not disturb mode that lets you quiet the smartwatch from providing alerts during specific hours, like when you sleep, so it’s not buzzing when you don’t want it to. Additionally, you can now create more than one alarm on the watch, and there’s even a new snooze option for when you need a few more minutes of sleep. Improved notification controls are also included, which lets you choose whether you want notifications, if you want notifications for only phone calls or if you want to turn them off entirely. Lastly, Pebble improved performance for iOS devices; once you leave Airplane mode, the smartwatch will connect right away, instead of first waiting a minute before reconnecting.

The update also ushers in a number of bug fixes, including one for dropped Bluetooth connections that may have been particularly frustrating for some users, and improved Bluetooth reliability overall. You can update your Pebble by opening the iOS or Android app on your smartphone.
