Next up is the Smart Alarm feature which is present in the official Alarms app. Smart Alarms go off when you are in your lightest sleep, up to 30 minutes before the set wakeup time. The Send Text app lets you start a conversation from your wrist. You can even send a canned response or voice note to recent and favorite contacts. Incoming calls can also be replied to with a canned text response or voice note. The Send Text app requires a Time-series watch with text replies enabled from a compatible carrier. Incoming call replies works on all Pebble models that have text replies enabled from a compatible carrier. This feature was already available for Android and has now expanded to iOS.
