Opportunities in developing for Android Wear

A session at Mobile+Web Developer Conference, San Francisco

Wednesday 15th July, 2015

1:45pm to 2:30pm (PST)

Wearable devices are the new frontier of personal computing and Android Wear is the easiest way for Android developers to take advantage of this new way of interacting with users and enhance how they experience your app.

In this talk we’ll explore the different ways to extend your app into Android Wear, starting by optimizing your current notification to display correctly on a smartwatch and then examining some case studies of successful apps that extended their notifications to use things like pictures, barcodes or media controls on Android Wear. We’ll also learn how to create an app that actually runs on the watch and the limitations and constraints of this new environment. Finally we’ll take a quick look at creating your own Android Wear watch face through the Watch Face API.
