Its a new device, to pick up a current woo feature... these woo readouts are available on the apple watch and other smart watches.
Is it available for a Samsung Galaxy watch?
There is no official WOO app for Samsung Galaxy watches, but I might write one if have time. I'm currently finishing app for Android Wear OS watches - Samsung Galaxy should be fairly similar.
Interesting. Isn't the data transfer connection secure?
I think Woo would do well to open source the software. They make money from the back end (servers) that collect the data and add the social aspect. Opening up the application for us to tinker with could mean adding PIQ data into the app. Also, we could write other back ends for different purposes, so my local club could run one on our website, or Toby on kiteforum could collect data and integrate it into the user profiles.
We could back up our data (export as .csv or .json)
Woo could stop developing all the different apps and let the community do that side of it. Save them money, make them the 'facebook' of water/snow data, they just provide a platform to users to connect to. PIQ, smart watches, Woo, Phones .... I'm 100% sure that in a few years someone will produce a small form factor phone that captures GPS, jumps, tons of other data. Fully waterproof, snow, dive, freedive, sailing, all that stuff. I think Woo needs to diversify and make a platform ready for gadgets that appear in 5 years time.
Open source it all. Create an 'official' build, charge people $5 a month to use it (e.g. Red Hat Linux) boom. Future proof.
We use arduinos and raspberry PIs a lot, I was wondering how hard it would be to just make an open source verson of the PIQ. The sensors are pretty cheap and the algorithm could be fun to write....
