I’m not sure when Fitbit will end all support services for Pebbles, but as of today (January 01, 2018), mine still receives notifications, can send canned text (and emojis), and weather part of Aspire Watch Face still works.
Dictation/Voice apps like Snowy and Voice Text worked briefly a few weeks ago, but have not worked for me since.
Also built-in Pebble weather still works.
Maybe Fitbit has not yet shut down whatever is left of Pebble servers? I’m also wondering if they will shut down this forum.
But it is my hope that Pebble is no longer dependent on Pebble servers of any sort. I guess time will tell.
