Rockwatch 1.0 Released
Mike @ 1:05 pm



Rockwatch allows your N9 to communicate with a Pebble smart watch. It makes it possible to install and manage Pebble apps, upgrade your Pebble’s firmware, receive notifications of e-mails and SMS messages and control your music from your Pebble.

Upcoming features

The next release will add:

  • Preliminary support for the HTTPebble protocol which allows watch faces and apps to communicate with HTTP servers via the phone’s network connection and also provides them with location information. For example this provides support for watch faces that display local weather information, like Fair Forecast.
  • The ability to set the watch’s time from the N9’s clock.

  4. I am so glad you made this app. I just got a Pebble and never imagined that it would be even slightly compatible with my N9. Old as it is, I love the N9.

    I hope you still plan on updating the app. The added functionality would be lovely.

    Thanks again.

  5. yrjm – Yep, I’ll continue developing Rockwatch; however all future updates (1.4 onwards) will be via either my website or the openrepos.net site due to Nokia stopping developers from uploading updates to the Ovi Store.

  6. Hello Mike,

    I know this has probably been taken off your list of ‘things to do’, since the N9 is now very old and probably not used much, but I was hoping you would be able to find the time to update this app to work with the latest Pebble software.

    The old (1.1) version still works with my Pebble, but you mentioned the 1.4 version on here, so I was hoping an update was planned (maybe abandoned because of the Ovi Store closure).

  7. Hi Mike,

    Firstly thank you very much for developing this great app.

    I know you are busy but I have a problem which i hope you might be able to help me with or at least answer Yes or No to my questions.

    I have a Pebble Steel and have had to use Recovery Mode and reinstall the firmware or more correctly update from the Recovery firmware. Recovery firmware 1.5.5 and installed firmware 1.14.1.

    For some reason the v1.14.1 firmware seems to be corrupted as once it’s installed the Bluetooth connection drops off and it is impossible to reconnect the phone to the Pebble. You can see the Pebble on the phone to pair but the pairing fails, the only way to pair is to go back to recovery mode.

    Pebble have given me a link to firmware 1.14.0, but I cannot find a way to load this with Rockwatch. Is it possible to load this firmware with Rockwatch, if so how?

    Also if I were to load a later firmware than 1.14.1 e.g. 2.7.1 will Rockwatch still work with the N9?

    Also the update from recovery can take several times before the update is successful. The update process will go as expected right till the end when the “Install and Run Pebble App’ message appears then the firmware fails to load. Is there anyway to make the process more reliable?

    Thanks for you time any any help you can provide for this fantastic app.


    P.S. I really hope someone will take the time to develop this app to allow the use of version 2 apps. The N9 might be an older phone but it’s still a very capable phone, much better in my opinion that the WP Nokias. The Pebble and the N9 were made for each other.
