More importantly is how’s the update fair?
Here’s the brief opinion.

~ before executing the update, make sure to factory reset the device as well as plug in to the power source to put the device on charging mode.
~ first round of new OS update may not work out smoothly, some apps may forced close. If encounters such problems, reinstall the updated OS again.
~ in the process, you may have to shut down and restart the Pebble a few times in order to make things work, really.
~ but once the updated OS “settled in”, everything works fine! That’s to my surprise.
~ as the new OS UI is different from the old one, you need a while to familiarize with it.
~ the Notification works much better than the older version and the  Timeline feature is highly productive stuff.
~ now one can explore more Pebble apps on this updated OS. Especially health tracking apps.
~ the battery charging of Pebble seems to be faster by 30% or so. Probably due to the updated firmware.

All in all, don’t wait; quickly go for the update!
