One of my biggest gripes about adding apps to a Pebble smartwatch was the number of clicks required to navigate to the app on the launcher menu. Up until recently, when you installed a new app on your watch you would have to launch into the launcher menu, then scroll to the bottom of the list to access the app. The list wasn't customizable.

With Pebble firmware 2.2, that's no longer the case. You can now rearrange the menu to your liking, making it easy to quickly access your favorite apps and services.

The first thing you'll need to do is ensure your watch is running firmware 2.2. You can do so by launching the Pebble app on your smartphone. You should be prompted to load the new firmware. If not, go into the settings section and tap on the "Check for Updates" button.

Once you're up and running with version 2.2, press the middle button on your Pebble to open the launcher menu. Scroll to the item you wish to move, then press and hold the middle button for a couple of seconds. You should see the item begin to move back and forth once it's ready to be moved. Using the up and down buttons, you can move it in either direction until you're happy.

Repeat the process until the list is in your preferred order.
