MetaWatch Hacks & Resources

People are starting to hack together some interesting things for the MetaWatch bluetooth watch platform, but the official forums are so hard to navigate that it’s hard to keep track of what’s going on. This post will serve to pull together some of the things I’ve come across, and I’ll update it until I get bored of curating it.


There’s now a MetaWatch Wiki; updated versions of the content below can be found there, particularly in the Hacks and Libraries & Frameworks pages.
