Tennis using Android Wear device as a racket

Hi guys, I don't know if this is kind of an off topic and is not meant as commercial but I found a great app that uses my wear device as a game controller.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ikacije.tennis

I've been playing it for two days now on my Moto 360 and it's fun.

The only thing you need to do is to go to options and select manual calibration cause Moto 360 says that it has an magnetometer so app thinks it can use automatic
calibration but as it seems Moto 360 does not have magnetometer, or so I'm told.

Follow instructions on screen for calibration to calibrate it, it's a bit strange at first but after you get a hang on it it's better than wii, and you can also connect your phone
to a TV and play like that, would be great to have a phone with TV connectivity to play it on a big TV screen.

Indeed very fun to play, but also VERY hard. Tried it with sending my phone screen to my TV using a Chromecast and playing like that. Didn't work out so well.

It's also very cool to show-off to your friends haha, they are already amazed by the Moto 360 and now even more.

Hello,

I am one of the developers of this game and just found this thread...
Can you be more specific on why is it so hard? When we were fine tuning the game before its release, we were actually afraid it was very easy, but we thought it was because we are used to gameplay.

Also, sending the display to another screen should make no difference.

Make sure you do correct calibration when game is installed on a device without magnetometer. Using our latest update calibration is not needed if both devices have magnetometer and thus relative position of racket to tennis field is known.

Moto 360 is specific because it reports that it has magnetometer, while in fact it does not! Therefore you have an option to force manual calibration and its "fake" magnetometer will continue to work.
