    I'm about to get a BlackBerry Priv, but just have a question for any owners that also use Pebble smartwatches (any version). Do you have any issues with stability of the bluetooth connection with your Priv, especially running Marshmallow?
    The reason I ask is that my previous phone (a Sony Xperia C5 Ultra) started having issues with Pebble after its Marshmallow update. Basically it would drop its bluetooth connection soon after the phone goes idle, and the only way to connect again is to go into the app and manually press the Connect button. It has something to do with doze, although I was sure to exclude the Pebble Time app and Bluetooth Share app from battery optimization. I don't have any issues like that on my old Nexus 4 also on Marshmallow.
    Not having a functioning watch is a deal breaker for me (I have 3 different models of Pebbles), so your experiences are much appreciated!

    Don't know if this means much, but for the last month or so I use a Samsung Gear S3 and my wife uses a Gear Fit2 with our Privs and so far they never dropped the connection or had any other issues.

    Thanks, that's a good sign I suppose. Although I found the Pebble app especially bad in terms to re-establishing connection after a disconnect. I also have Android Wear watches, and never had issues with them on that problematic Sony...

    I was having problems right after the M update. I ended up wiping out the Bluetooth connection and then rebooting the phone. I then rediscovered the pebble and everything has been solid since.

    I had the same issue with my car -- frequent disconnects so I had to delete and reconnect.
