Software update 1.96 - Water Reminders & Pushbullet Abilities

More Abilities

We’re launching two prototype abilities that our fantastic developers have come up with: water reminders and notes with Pushbullet.

These new abilities might have some rough edges, but will also evolve and change as we learn how you use them. Feel free to try them out by enabling them from the Abilities tab in the Focals app and let us know what you think!

Stay hydrated with Focals

Drinking enough water throughout the day can be tough, but this new Ability on Focals aims to change that: get notified when it’s time to hydrate so you can reach your daily water intake goal.

A Water notification appears on Focals.

Reminders appear as notifications on Focals.


Click a reminder to keep track of your water intake for the day.

Offline reading and notes with Pushbullet

If you haven’t heard of Pushbullet, it’s an app and Chrome extension that lets you share quick notes, messages, and links across your devices.

With the new Pushbullet Ability for Focals, you can share and view content on your Focals display: perfect for enjoying some offline reading during those longer commutes or for glanceable, no-smartphone-required notes during meetings.

The Pushbullet app open with a message to Focals: 'Remember to congratulate Sarah during the team meeting.'

Select My Focals in the Pushbullet app.
Type yourself a quick note or paste a link for offline reading.

A Pushbullet reminder on the Notifications view.

Tap Send and view notes or links you send from Pushbullet on your Notifications view.
