First starts on the Wearable App & API

The other night I started making the initial app (android) which will work with the Wearable API.

Initial input & output methods were explored and implemented in a basic application.


The idea was to start with finding out what ways we can communicated with the Wearable API.

So Far:

Inputs: GPS, Mic, Accelerometer, Temperature, Compass, Message, JSON, Camera

Outputs: Dialogue, Talk, Vibrate, Notification, Audio, Toast

Even with these simple methods added we can start building the API to do stuff for us.

Right now my preferred method of receiving output is by audio. So right now It ‘speaks’ a lot, but but voice/audio notifications work so well.

“Louis, you have received an email”, “New calendar appointment received” “Warning: You are doing over 70MPH” Of course; these are all configurable in the API.
