Hello,

currently Wear for Locus Map should supports all available Android Wear watch and has no special hardware requirements as all the data are streamed from the main Locus Map application on the phone (stand-alone function of the watch app is not supported, at least for now).

So I would recommend to choose a watch that suits your liking and your needs. As you probably like outdoor and/or fitness activities be sure to check if selected watch has GPS, HR sensor, water resistance or other properties that might be beneficial during your sport activities.

Finally please be sure to double check the specification of the watch you choose and confirm that it really runs Android Wear OS as the add-on currently only supports Android Wear. Lot of big brands like Garmin, Samsung (Gear), Xiaomi and others are actually often using their own proprietary OS on their watches which we do not support.


Hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Hello,

yes, Sony Smartwatch 3 should work totally fine.

Na działanie nie będzie miało wpływu to że Sony smartwatch 3 nie otrzyma Android wear 2?

Well, you might consider another watch with Android Wear 2 support, as AW2 supports stand-alone applications which might be useful. But Wear for Locus Map itself doesn't currently support stand-alone application and is fully compatible with Android Wear 1.x watches.

Sorry to hear that, what seems to be the problem? Maybe I could help you.

The watch itself should not be a problem because in this forum thread there are at least 2 users who have confirmed the add-on is working fine on Sony SW3.

Przepraszam moja pomyłka, problemem okazał się android wear , który potrzebował dodatkowej aktualizacji . Teraz wszystko działa , tylko mam jeszcze pytanie czy jest w programie opcja aby korzystał z GPS ze smartwatch?

Ok, glad to hear it is working. GPS is currently sent from the phone only, GPS on the watch is not used.

Currently a stand-alone operation is not planned but you can definitely vote for this idea to show interest for such a feature.

Czy aplikacja będzie obsługiwana przez Overmax Touch 2.5 . Chodzi mi o połączenie z telefonem i wyświetlanie mapy na zegarku.

Hello, sorry Overmax Touch 2.5 will not work with this add-on because it is using some kind of custom OS. The add-on only supports Android Wear (recently renamed to Wear OS) operating system.
