If you have experience pairing an 'alert watch' (e.g Fossil MetaWatch, Sony LiveView, Sony Smartwatch, SE MBW-150, InPulse Watch, WIMM, MotoACTV etc) with a Galaxy Tab 7.7 then please chime in. I'm looking for a device with a wrist strap that can, at the very least, display incoming calls and text messages.

I didn't even know this was possible. Very cool if so.

for sure LiveView (version 1) is not working. Liveview application can't find any installed plugin. only thing that work is locate tablet. Also on each reconnect the bt pass must be accepted (via OK button, but annoying...). This issue can be solved via hack on rooted devices. But no plugins...


...and after few days of testing...is working...!!! the problem is that LiveView can't find a plugin if it's not enabled. To enable a plugin, in ADW launcher EX add a custom shortcut to Activities on desktop and the plugins can be enabled\configured. After resetting Liveview all the plugins are found and active!!!!

I can confirm that the metawatch works perfectly. I was able to test it with a friend's model and found no problems.

I'll have to find a liveview for cheap then.



There is a new watch on the horizon: Pebble. I'm guessing everyone here has heard about it by now given the records it has broken on Kickstarter.

The Sony watches are useless unless paired. They can't function on their own. I have the WIMM and it is stellar. The original liveview i bought was pure garbage.

I'm a backer for the Pebble - just got a project update this morning notifying backers that all Pebbles will now support BT 4.0!

One of the biggest draws of this product for me is the low power consumption - I don't need the watch display to be colorful if it means i'm running out of charge faster than my phone. I'm still interested in the WIMM and Sony, but I'm guessing I won't get as much use out of it if I'm forgetting to charge it/running out of battery all the time.
