Pebble Watch stopped contecting

After the latest update to Golf Pad, the app no longer connects to my pebble watch. On Thursday I played a round with no problems at all - on Monday I load up the course on my phone but there is nothing on my watch. My husband has the same problem.

The team delivered! For those of you who want to try to download an older version to try to restore Pebble/ Golf Pad compatibility. Here is a link to the file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m8vl16lwneh7vd9/GolfPad_15.79.3_Pebble.apk?dl=0 

You  will need to uninstall the current version from Google Play first and disable automatic updates so this version is not overwritten. You may need to enable installing app from unknown sources: https://android.gadgethacks.com/how-to/android-101-sideload-apps-by-enabling-unknown-sources-install-unknown-apps-0161947/. You will miss out on all future app updates. We strongly encourage you to get a supported watch instead. Finally, this build may or may not work with Pebble and we can’t provide any support assistance if something does not work.
Oh, thank you guys! So happy. Now I can use my fav app again on my fav watch :-)) Maybe put this in your general Pebble instructions too, to avoid confusing?
Hey redirecting a dead thread to offer help. I am a software engineer and love two things in life, GolfPad and Pebble watch. I would be willing to do the development to allow Pebble to work on GolfPad. I am sure we could work out some way to open source that feature without opening up all your code. Or an NDA or something. Short of that, have you looked at the BangleJS watches. I have made several apps for those too. I could port the support to that

Hi Brant - Thank you for being such an avid supporter. :) 


Update from the team:


"We appreciate the offer, but open-sourcing a portion of our codebase or setting up the NDA and access is not feasible. We love Pebble too, but it’s time to move on to the newer watches. They come with many new cool features that were not possible on Pebble, and we’re focusing our efforts on making our watch apps even better. "
