The Pebble App Challenge is a competition to find the best 16 apps of the Pebble appstore and match them against each other until the best app is revealed! Between March 10th and March 23rd, developers have submitted their new or existing apps to enter in the Challenge.

Beginning Monday April 7th, visit the Pebble appstore on your iOS or Android device to vote for the ultimate winner!

The final 16 apps from this challenge have moved on to the final rounds of voting! Pebble users will now vote in the Pebble appstore for their favorites in each match. The winning app will continue to the next day, until the best Pebble app is elected by Pebble appstore users. The winner will be announced on Friday April 11th.


UPDATE: Following to the Pebble App iOS problem in the appstore, we have decided to postpone the final stage of the Pebble App Challenge to Monday April 7th (the initial date was March 31st). It would have been unfair to everyone to run the finals of the challenge when iOS users cannot access the appstore. We will send an email update to everyone (and post it here) as soon as the problem is resolved and we have a new date for the finals. Thank you for your understanding.


The challenge is open to individuals, team of individuals who are at least the age of majority where they reside as of the time of entry. It is also open to organizations. One individual can join several teams in the Challenge.

The Challenge is not open to individuals who are residents of a country where the laws of the United States or local laws prohibits participating or receiving a prize in the Challenge. Employees of Pebble or companies involved in the organization, as well as their families are not authorized to enter the Challenge. Please read the rules for more details. 


Participants need to submit a Pebble 2.0 application (watchapp, watchface, companion apps are all eligible) on the Challenge website. The submission should include a text description, some screenshots and an optional (but strongly recommended) video.

The application must be publicly available in the Pebble appstore. It does not need to be new, every app available on the Pebble appstore can be entered in the competition. Each participant can submit multiple applications.
