Developing i'm Watch apps - Droidcon London 2013

"Wearable computing is turning out to be the next big thing. Most of the major players in the smartphone market are hurrying up to release smartwatches, wearable sensors, glasses, and a variety of the most diverse kinds of devices. Launched in 2012 and based on a customized version of Android, the i’m Watch is one of the first smart watches available on the market, and the most complete feature-wise.

In this session, you’ll get an overview of what you need to develop apps for the i’m Watch (spoiler alert: you probably already have everything you need!), you’ll learn what a smart watch is supposed to do and what the main differences in user experience and expectations are from what you’re used to on phones and tablets.

The session will also briefly cover the libraries that will make your life easier and help you create outstanding apps for the i’m Watch.

Why not find out more about this great new technology?"

This deck was presented in the main conference at the Droidcon London 2013, in the "Not phones" track. This is basically an extended version of the barcamp speech that was presented at the Droidcon Paris 2013.
