I read about Open Smartwatch project but it does not say anything about second generation that looks almost like first one so will info provided on their blog for MN2 also work on SW2 or not?

hi, this is a message to sony opensmartwatch development team

kindly provide and support the open smartwatch project for smart watch 2
http://developer.sonymobile.com/serv...watch-project/
http://developer.sonymobile.com/serv...-hacker-guide/
http://developer.sonymobile.com/serv...per-questions/

information is sorely lacking for smartwatch 2

things that could be worth doing on smartwatch 2 includes:
porting tizen os to smart watch 2
https://www.tizen.org/
porting webos to smart watch 2
http://www.openwebosproject.org/
porting opie to smart watch 2
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPIE_user_interface
porting sailfish os to smart watch 2
https://sailfishos.org/
porting mer os to smart watch 2
http://merproject.org/about.html
etc etc
or even a new dedicated open source platform project targetted to such smartwatch small device platforms

etc. small devices like smartwatch 2 needs to go beyond vm based platform (e.g. dalvik jit) due to the tight hardware constraints, ram, processor speeds, storage, internal flash memory storage, and low battery life. palm os, windows mobile has been pretty successful in these respects in the past creating platforms that runs in little memory, lower cpu speeds and less internal storage.

the old palm iii runs on a mere 2 megs ram

some devices on the more recent windows mobile 6 platform has about the same hardware prowess of today's smartwatches
