do you plan to develop a stand alone app for galaxy watch using internal gps and pressure sensors. The benefit would be fantastic for ski touring, trekking, mtb, to get distance, elevation and track, especially when you dont carry your telephone with you

predently, this is available with run4gear, v

the other important point would be to register the track (based on the internal gps sensor), and then be able to tranfer it to the phone

the main interests for stand alonne app is : you dont need to carry the phone with you, and you dont need telecom network
