There is several solutions to connect Pebble Watches with Jolla Phone. With such solutions you can connect your Jolla phone and Pebble Watch and install Pebble applications.

Some applications are stand alone and don't require a phone app. But some do require Android or iOS application to communicate with.

I wasn't successful at using android app on jolla together with pebble. So I'm interesting are there some pebble applications together with jolla phone applications that is designed specially for Sailfish OS? For example are some GPS (or sport tracker) like MeeRun that is working with pebble on jolla phone?

May be it is a good idea to create a list of such applications if any.

I've been using Pebble with Misfit app for few weeks, connected to Jolla. Is there any possibility to change Misfit settings and run sync with Jolla as Android apps don't seem to work with BT?

Pebble originally had the same issue, with Android companion apps not running on iPhone and vice-versa.

They solved this with Pebble SDK v2, introducing JavaScript based companion apps. pebbled supports SDKv2 companion apps since version 0.14. And does it pretty much complete.

Most apps for Pebble Watch are currently SDKv2 with JS companion apps, so the issues may arise only with very old apps that weren't upgraded to SDKv2 yet. But Sailfish is not alone here as these affects iPhone and Android the same way. Just nag the app author to move to SDKv2 and JavaScript companion app, what they should do anyway...

The issue with MeeRun is a bit different and not related to missing companion app support (which is supported). Activity trackers for Pebble watch contain two apps for the watch. The "real" app that can be launched on watch and "worker" app that runs in background tracking activity. We simply had no idea how to upload this second app to the watch. Fortunately the recently released libpebble2 demonstrates how to do it, so support in pebbled should follow soon.

If you're looking for watch apps which require a companion app in the phone, then I'm afraid there are none. At least to my knowledge because the watch apps only officially supports Android an iOS. However, it should be possible to have Pebble support for SFOS apps also.
