Hello,

Does anyone found a tweak of lifelog app to make compatible with the Smartwatch 2 ? In other words, I'd like to use my SW2 as an activity tracker for Lifelog app (like the smartband or the SW3 would do).

Cheers.

No... No API. I think they won't give a SW2 extension because SW3 has already been released and they want to sell their newer watches.

All in all there is missing some hardware so that you won't be able to use SW2 alone as tracker. The maximum possible would be a possibility to read from Smartband Data. According to this, the simple use Runtastic via SW2 could be more efficient.

Thanks, As there is the walkmate app, I though the SW2 has all the hardware needed to track movement. I guess the sensors use by walkmate are the one from the phone and the SW2 app is only displaying it.

Well I just have to try to sell my SW2 and wait for the SW3

Now you're right. Walkmate just counts according to the movement of your smartphone and just displays the results. SW2 has no step counter onboard... Sorry.

SW2 has an accelerometer... that's what you'd call a step counter.

Tried to count steps with SW2? I think there are different types / qualities of accelerometers - and SW2's was made for minimal functions. If it would be possible, Sony would have told this in its advertisements, supported by extensions or mentioned in another way.

SW2's accelerometer has a slow refresh rate, and often has data missing or stuck.
It is a notification oriented device, and was not created with the health tracking ideas behind it (if you see history, SW2 was created before the health tracking fad came along).

Tried hacking it around to attach with Google Fit (can't with LifeLog as the Android client has no open API), and it has major issues, so let it go.

It is possible because it's already been done.
Here is pedometer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.sw.pet&hl=en


Also see this post where the accelerometer is referred to as a pedometer:
