Android Wear Apps (no Watch Faces)  - 
 
I updated my Heartbeat Note app. It measures your heart rate and records a note at the same time.

I also made a web site to demonstrate sharing the data using Parse/Facebook.

Please visit the site at http://heartbeatnote.com/ and download the app from http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.l6n.hn

I look forward to your feedback!

Now imagine wearing it while on a date :).
Cool, good luck with it, you even released it before Apple.

Has anyone published an app to Play that measures heart rate?

I made an app that works fine in debug, but when I publish to Play it appears to remove the BODY_SENSORS permission from the mobile app and so when it tries to install the Wear app it gives an error "Host application permissions are not set".

This is not the fit sdk. This is android wear api 20.

I think it's safe to say that more RSS readers are being built this week than at any other point in history.

Very true! I was looking at NewsBlur as a replacement for mine, and I noticed that they temporarily axed the free trial due to overwhelming demand :-)

EventBus  - 
 
How do you mock EventBus? It's final, doesn't implement an interface, and you usually create an instance using a static method.

We don't mock EventBus. Our unit tests typically use the real thing.

Announcements  - 
 
I made an app for Google Wear, specifically the Samsung Gear Live.  I'd like some feedback on the idea.

The basic idea is that when you measure your heart rate, you also want to record the reason why you're measuring it.

I released a public beta to Play at this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.l6n.hn

This app will only install to a paired Wear device if the host device is running L Preview
And that's an assumption on my part because I don't have such a device.
If you want to install the Wear app manually to your watch, please download it from here: http://dev.l6n.org/apk/HeartbeatNote-0.1.1-wear.apk

This app records a note at the same time as the heart rate.
When the note is recorded, if there's still no heart rate measurement it'll try for up to 30 seconds longer to get a measurement.

It uses Parse.com as the database, which means that it can sync to a backend, and if you choose to login with Facebook you can view your measurements on other devices.
Later I could add a web app to view the data.

It registers for the "record note" and "measure heart rate" actions on the watch, although I don't know if that's working.

So far the UI is a bit developer-ish, but I think it works functionally.

Please give it a try!

One random afternoon in Portland, I walked into World Cup & Tea expecting to get some work done and maybe answer a few emails. What followed was an unexpected ass kicking from the guy who invented...
