With Fitbit scheduled to end official support for Pebble smartwatches at the end of June, an independent team of developers has put together a service called Rebble, with the aim of keeping user accounts, apps and devices active into the future.

The platform isn't completely new, but with the deadline looming, users are being encouraged to get set up with Rebble before June 30 – even Pebble founder Eric Migicovsky has endorsed the new setup.

Parts of Rebble will be free to use, with premium services like Weather and Dictation keeping the operation running.

"Our present focus is on replacing key pieces of the Pebble ecosystem: the app store, firmware, and mobile apps," explains the Rebble FAQ page.

"At a higher level, our goal is to maintain and advance Pebble functionality."

The end of the road
