Thanks for your support. Hexiwear just passed its first stretch goal at 150% funds acquired. Our software team will start working on implementing notifications from smartphones.
For developers, Hexiwear is a watch that saves time. Among other things, it’s the fastest way to create a low-power smartwatch prototype. Instead of starting from scratch, you can start very near the finish line. Now that enough people have shown interest, we will make development even more convenient, by adding support for notifications into the preloaded firmware.
The notification feature will turn the Hexiwear to Smartphone BLE connection into a two-way lane. Hexiwear will be able to receive alerts for upcoming SMS messages, calls and emails. The updated firmware will be available on GitHub so that you can freely edit and improve it for your specific notifications.
Next on the menu, at $35.000 we will create a demo with Hexiwear, the Hexiwear Docking Station and WiFi3 click. To allow you to circumvent the smartphone app and connect to the cloud straightaway.
Beyond that, we have more than a few ideas, and we have your feedback (in case you haven’t seen the possibilities, cast your vote here). But let’s take it a step at a time.
