Tutorial Best Smartwatch for Quick App Creation

I've searched for hours the best smartwatch for this. Here are my needs: not bluetooth-dependent, aka watch-phone (all I need is wifi really) but I still do plan on pairing it to my device... I also want to create my own apps easily, much like that with Tasker scenes. I am a coder as well but never coded android apps, only pc. It looks like a nightmare. Correct me if I'm wrong. I am interested in Sony SW2 sdk, but that looks taunting. I would like Sony but I would also like to use wifi. Is that possible with some modding? I want an independent smartwatch that can also pair with my phone. I also want app creation for various things. Waiting is a last resort. Thanks.

Take a look at SmartQ's Z-watch. Had the sw2...preferred Z as daily driver.

I now have the TS due to 2nd line necessity....be honest, I miss the Z.

I think the best one for developing apps on it will be the AI Watch, best specs putting all the other smartwatches in shame.

Is this the new preorder one? I just looked at their website, it looks pretty future-tech. I can't find any "good" info on their current one.

Thanks, this watch looks like a great deal. The deal-breaker for me is being water-proof and having the headphone jack.

@mghtymse007 Can I ask you: have you tried Tasker on your Z watch? Does scene creation work? Does Tasker Gingerbread work better? (Tasker Gingerbread also works on 4.x) If you could try it out that'd be nice. Thanks,
