    Default 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.

    That sounds really cool. Could you kindly provide more details as to setting this up?
    Could you export out the Tasker tasks etc so I can take a look at the setup.
