The initial deadline for the Samsung Gear App Challenge has come and gone and WearableC64 did not make it into the store.
We spent quite a bit of time working on the project but have come to the conclusion that the project is not possible with the official software stack currently supported on the Gear 2.
The other option here, and the best one, IMHO, is not to ship HTML5-only devices. Open up the native Tizen C++ API for Tizen Wearable, TV and IVI profiles and this becomes a non-issue.
I’ll keep working on the broader problem as part of the MonoHTML5 project, but this specific short-term project is sadly dead. Killed by the poor-quality browser and by Samsung decision to force all developers onto HTML5 for the Gear 2. The Tizen project “picked the wrong horse” with Webkit for Tizen 2.x. That decision was corrected by the flip to Crosswalk for Tizen 3.x, but that software change is unlikely to hit devices for another year, which is an eternity at the current rate of device iteration. We’ll probably be on Gear 4 or Gear 5 by then!
So maybe WearableC64 will make it to your wrist in a year or so? It certainly won’t make it onto Android Wear. My Gear Live arrived. So limited and disappointing in comparison to the Gear 2. Android Wear is so boring an operation system. Nothing applicable for games. Just a very slick notifications system, essentially. Can’t take photos, make videos, make or receive calls. Even better CPU (1.2Ghz vs 1.0Ghz). Utterly wasted on a “one app” OS.
