About the Tasker

Tasker - Smart Notifier is very useful but... it is not exactly what I want.
I'll try to explain. We need just a widget or watchface that shows us any information from Tasker without any(vibration of the watch) something like canvas for pebblewatch.
I can send any information to watch.
we need a widget that will show any information from tasker
var DFG = "Hello XDA" and this var I want to send to my watch's widget without any vibration. just for example)

All you guys are renewing and updating their cell phones and watches. unfortunately I broke mine so Ive downgraded to samsung j5 Pro Android 9.
Ive installed the newest update which I downloaded here. But still it's asking for an update and there's nothing I can do about it. Some of the main apps cannot be installed. I take a screenshot and also the results from Google Play.
Please help me and tell me what I can do.
Thank you

    Hi all xda members :)
    This is a my personal hack of the sony sw2 host at the moment this app do this things:

    1. Ability of placing overdarwed widget.
    2. Chnage watch face trought tasker or other program like it.
    3. Navigating from watchfaces directly from your current watch face(only if you install and configure sw2 multi watchface extension) Idea by @AlexOB1.

    I hope that with time the features increase :)

    -Go to setting -> bluettoth -> smartwatch 2 -> unpair
    -From the smartwatch go to settings -> bluetooth -> Make visible for pairing
    -Repair your smartwatch 2

    Tasker Configuration Tutorial.

    1)Open tasker and go into "TASKS" tab.
    2)Click on the "+" button(placed at bottom right of the screen) and insert a label for your task.
    3)Now whill open a new windows,now hit on the plus placed on bottom of the screen.
    4)Select "System".
    5)Select "Send Intent".
    6)Now on "Action" write "com.smartwatch2.manu.ACTION"(Whitout semicolons).
    7)On extra you can write:
    • "CLEAR_WATCHFACES:1" for remove alle the watchface from the watch
    • "SET_WATCHFACE:watchface_name" for add a new watchface to the watch.
    • "RM_WATCHFACE:watchface_name" for remove the watchface from the watch
    8)Scrol down and on Target select Broadcast Receiver.
    8)Save it and test :).


    V 0.1
    1. -Added the ability to overdraw the widget.

    V 0.2
    1. -Added the posibility of changing watchface over broadcast intet.
      code example:
      Intent i = new Intent("com.zeus.sw2.hack.FILTER");
      i.putExtra("name","watch face name");

    V 0.3
    1. Now the watchface editor is 17x5(this new layout for me provide a better widget positioning, but if you dislike report to me and i will return to stock layout).
    2. Added Multi Watchface extension support.

    V 0.4 [Same apk of post #216]
    1. -Fixed the multifatchwace issues (i hope..)
    2. -Added the posibility of toggle debugmode whit a broadcast intent (do this only if you want study the sw2 core).
      code example:
      Intent i = new Intent("com.zeus.sw2.hack.FILTER");
      Intent i = new Intent("com.zeus.sw2.hack.FILTER");

      [*]N.B If you change the grid layout of watchface and then you change a watchface already created in the past it will not have the new layout.

    Any suggestions for improve this mod are welcome :D

    If you like my work you can donete through this :)

    For people using Xposed framework on their phones, I packaged manu0466's patch as a Xposed module.
    No need to install any patched versions of Sony's apps, it works with the standard apps from Google Play.

    Install the provided APK, activate the module in the Xposed installer and reboot your phone.

    It's working perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with the 2 last versions of the watch software.
