What’s mentioned in Google play:
"We’ve updated our Android app to preserve the Pebble smartwatch experience and remove the dependence on cloud services.
The app lets Pebble devices keep working, even if online servers are not accessible for any reason. The login process can be skipped, apps can be side-loaded, and the latest watch firmware (including language packs) can be installed.
Visit developer.pebble.com for full details.
This release includes fixes for missing images and high CPU usage on certain versions of Android."
