There was some instability in watch app 1.5.4. Hopefully fixed in 1.5.4a In Glance 0.10 the hourly vibrate setting (in Customise Watch) can incorrectly look like it is off when it is on.

This version has a load of bug fixes and supports some new features – a watch face editor, menu editor, a choice of location providers, better calendar handling, better gmail handling, a lost phone finder and more. See the grid below for compatibility.
Some features are SDK2 only and some are unlocked from an In App Purchase – feel free to buy it even if you don’t want the features. Thanks.
Once you upgrade you Android app, it should guide you to the right watch app based on the firmware version on your watch. If you haven’t gone to SDK2 yet (or don’t know what this is) then you will want version 1.5.1x
If you are coming from the current production build of 1.5.1 you will notice some of the information screens like calendar and weather behave differently – the up/down buttons are overloaded to both scroll (single click) and go to the next item. There is a help screen that can be dismissed from the menu.
Here are the links if you need to force it to the right version: SDK1SDK2. As ever you might need to try Firefox, or even launch the pbw from a file manager to kick off the Pebble installer.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback, suggestions and bug reports, particularly the beta test group. Any issues email@example.com
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Pebble developer retreat earlier in the year where we were given early access to SDK 2. So here is a beta of the Glance watch app to go with the beta of SDK 2
Download it using Chrome (sometimes FF is required) from here
The BigWeather screen has been redesigned – I may make this a new screen rather than a replacement later
Bluetooth and Watch battery status are shown in the title bar of the main menu
Your Pebble will vibe twice on Bluetooth connect or disconnect when Glance is running
The Calendar, Weather, ReadSMS, UKTrains and Stocks screens now all navigate in the same way – the up and down buttons scroll when held, double click the up and down buttons to get the next page (i.e. the next days information, the return trains, the next sms etc). Select does a screen dependent action – on the weather screen it will ask for a full refresh from the weather provider (which may take a moment depending on your network!)
There is a help screen which appears when you use the “information” screens detailed above. You can dismiss it from the main menu item “Toggle Help”. Dismissing the screen is persisted on the pebble (another new SDK 2 feature), but that data does get cleared when a new version of the app is installed.
Crashes: Occasional crashes still happen. Sorry, it is a beta, I am working on it.
Disconnects: Sometimes BT is still connected but messages don’t make it. Restarting the watchapp can help. Sometimes a reboot is required
