Android Wear OS compatibility

Post by adxsoft » Sat Nov 09, 2019 5:41 am

I just bought my first android smartwatch, the ticWatch E, which runs Wear OS 2.0.

I was surprised when Livecode 9.5.1 rc1 Build 15504 recognised the smartwatch and listed it in the Development Test Target Menu.

So I created the attached simple stack which sets the Android Standalone Application Settings to

- Android 8.0 (Oreo)
- Android armV7

Also I set the stack size to fit within the smartwatch 400x400 screen

I the ran Test in the development menu and the app was deployed to the smartwatch. So far so good.

The Livecode app showed in the list of apps however when I ran it on the smartwatch it just flashed a purple screen and then stopped.

I'm probably being over optimistic that LC will create an Android Wear OS smartwatch app however at this stage LC certainly has the capability to

- recognise an Android Wear OS 2.0 device
- deploy an apk to the smartwatch device

All we need now is the ability for the apk to execute

Are there any plans to support Wear OS in the future?
