For anyone with smartwatch connection problems...
With development stopped on the wearOS plugin
and also the abysmal state of WearOS in general
just found out something interesting.
Was playing around with a spare phone I had, zte blade, new it was only £30
and i came across an app called watch droid assitant
this is basically the sending/receiving part of smart watches that run full Android not wearOS, like the lemfo etc.
with most phones nowadays being quite large, i also came across one of those running cases for strapping a small phone to your arm,
so basically ive made myself a smartwatch from an old phone
all notifications from maain phone go to my "watch" which has a 3.5" screen
ive got LM4 on it so I can use this "watch for running or as a bike computer, and keep my main phone safe, and and just sync up my track recordings afterwards.
google maps navigation prompts on main phone pops on on the other phone, it can control music playback etc
So if anyones got a spare phone, easy to turn in to a bike computer that you could leave on bike without needing to unmount it even.
Would be usefull if 2 android devices that were paired by bluetooth could communicate with each other, ie from a tablet start track recording on a phone, open compass screen on phone/watch when click button on tablet ( this could be done in tasker) but sending a guiding to request would be trickier. Ie if you select a guide target on tablet/phone , compass pops up on phone/watch with arrow indicator.
