Smartwatches

Post by p-OS » Mon Feb 19, 2018 1:28 am

Hello,

I wonder if anyone already tried running Hollywood Apps (compiled , not HWPlayer) on Android Watches ?

Most of them have round shaped displays

On Android Hollywood does not support transparent displays, thus they can only be rectangular.

So i wonder if they fail to open a Display at all?

I'm talking about smartwatches like the Finow X5 Air or the KingWear KW98.

They run an 1.3 GHz quadcore ARM CPU, between 0.5 and 2 GB RAM, and a rounded display of 400x400 px. OS is Android 5.1 (NOT Android Wear).

Interesting, till now I thought, Android apps have to be explicitly written for Android Wear, and that nirmal Andorid Apps do not work. That's why I was explicitly looking for a watch with a full Android.

Besides that on your device I'm not surprised, taht it works, couse it is a rectangular dispaly

Apps writen in normal resolutions for a normal android
Device, phone, tablet etc, are scaled for the smartwatch screen, and working perfect, if you write your app in the smartwatch resolution, 320x320 on sw3 for example, you must have best performance ever

I have installed scoreboards apk, you can find it in the store, in my smartwatch, and it's exactly the same that in the phone is. Evidently is not writen for smartwatches, and is not very useful in the watch
