Gear 2 vs Tasker
I was asked to start a new topic.
Let me explain what I do on my watch with is handled by Tasker.
It's kind a personal preference. I set my phone into 3 modes: Home, Work and outdoor.
I start a break timer for my work breaks.
A silent Mode, several times for like the washing machine done Timer. I get the weather as an notification from Tasker using in Tasker a httpget action.
From Tasker there a messages pushed to my watch with AutoNotification.
How did I created the intergration:
I use the gear 2 app app launcher.
From Tasker I created single Tasks which writes a command to a file. These tasks are exported to single apps which I can launch from app launcher.
In Tasker I created a profile of the file modified event. From there I read the command and execute it.
For sending to the watch I just create a AutoNotification message and cancel it immediately.
So for the weather command I got the info from the Internet. Parse the result into a small readable test with the current and the forecast weather.
This is send back to the watch.
In the morning this is automatically generated when I first unlock the screen.
With Tasker the possibilities are almost endless.
Please leave comments and suggestions.
