SmartWatches

Smartwear, specifically smartwarches, I am going to check it out.
It seems I have just gotten the bit of inspiration I needed to get involved with it.
Also, makes for a nice new years resolution. So here it goes.

So the plan will be to see what is involved in making an app or an app face for a smartwatch.

Here are my recent findings.

  • Watches are still a bit on the expensive side.
  • I have to figure out how to get one to be able to develop on one.
    (even pebble is $99).
  • watch “face” apps seem to be popular.
  • Unfortunately the watch that I would want for my brother is only water proof for a meter of water and for not too long time. (also $250).
  • Apple will be coming with one soon. Don’t know how expensive.
  • Samsung is going with new OS tizen not android.

here are some links FYI to get started.
