DSC_0345

  • SW2 – can now select from multiple watchfaces and change your default watchface as follows:
    • Swipe left or right to browse thru the augmented prior alerts or widgets (weather, fitbit, etc)
    • Swipe down
    • Swipe left/right to scroll thru the watchfaces – the default is automatically set as you scroll
    • Hit the back button or swipe up to save as default
  • SW2 Low-Power WatchFace – New Option – to control what happens when you tap on the SW2 when WatcFace is being shown. Option disabled by default (shows last alert). If enabled will only enable backlight to see the WatchFace in a brighter light. When in Quiet Time Enabled mode, tapping on SW2 will light up backlight only (change from prior behaviour). Can still swipe left right regardless of setting to see prior alerts and weather etc.
  • SW2 Low-Power WatchFace – New Option to control the SW2 display brightness when an alert is shown. “Enable Default Screen Brightness” – to use the BRIGHT setting (disable to use the DIM setting). One can tap the SW2 to switch from DIM to BRIGHT during an alert. Default is enabled.
  • New SW2 LowPower Options – Dynamic Bars in WatchFace – if enabled the horizontal bars will show (from top to bottom): Phone Battery, Phone Signal Strength and Fitbit steps  (actual vs goal). This option is disabled by default.
  • Change of SW2 behaviour – if the low power watchface is enabled, then hitting the soft back button (when swiping thru alerts/widgets) will return to the watchface. Hitting the back button in watchface mode will still show music controls.

New in Version 6.6.2

  • Finally – True Low Power mode support for Sony SW2 with a brand new watchface! (disabled by default)
    • Touch and soft button controls are always active (except when Quiet Time is active). In Quiet-Time mode a swipe up will turn on the SW2 Watchface (useful in the dark when quiet mode is on)
    • Optimized for battery usage (though there will still be some impact, on the SW2, battery hit on Android is minimal). I will continue to optimize the SW2 battery life
    • Recommend enabling deep-sleep workaround if you want to ensure you get updates of the time every minute in the watch-face
    • Battery Saving tips:
      • Set “Time to Show Screen 1” to 4 seconds or less – you will see the last notification in the top of the watchface – you can tap on watchface to see the last alert
      • Disable “Show More Info” (under SmartWatch 2 Specific Options)
      • Enable”Enable WatchFace Battery Savings” – you can now toggle this from your SW2 (soft right button) it is labelled “Battery Saver”. When enabled the watchface may not be updated every minute. When disabled, the watchface should be enabled once per minute.
      • Disable “Enable Default Screen Brightness” (6.6.3) – to use the DIM setting (instead of the BRIGHT setting). One can tap the SW2 to switch from DIM to BRIGHT during an alert.
    • Note clock is only updated every 30 minutes during quiet time (for battery life) otherwise it is updated every minute – so you will still get an accurate time (if Enable WatchFace Battery Saving is not enabled.

Google Navigation also needs to be enabled under optimized notifications.

This can be configured and is disabled by default.
  • New option to place this notification history at the start of the info (so it can be seen at a glance) – disabled by default.

    • Screen 2 – Second part of notification (if notification cannot fit into Screen 1)
    • Screen 3 – More Info for “Second Screen”
    • Screen 4 – Summary of last few notifications followed by what was shown in Screen 1 (user would need to manually scroll down to see this).

    • # of missed calls
    • Note optimization for 2nd screen only being shown when no more pending notifications in the queue
  • Menu->Test Notification option will indicate reason notifications may not be shown on SmartWatch (if Quiet Time or Notifications Pause state are active)

  • Clean up sender info for email messages (Pebble)

    • If you have only 1 GMail account on your Android, the email body preview will work properly every time (the very first email and any email thereafter) if this field is properly set.
    • If you have more than 1 GMail account on your Android, set this field to the account you are most likely to receive email from (if you so wish). Note for the very first email (i.e. when the unread count is 1) it will always show the email body from this account (as it is the only way the app can determine which account name to use). So if an email arrives in another account and it is the first unread email for that account then the email body shown on the watch will be wrong. Leave this field blank to avoid this (prior behaviour) but you will only see sender/subject for the very first email.
    • This option is a workaround for the very first email and 100% reliable if you only have one GMail account configured on your device.
    • Note do not enter @gmail.com part only the name of your google email

Option is enabled by default (can be disabled in Pebble settings).
  • User Request: (Sony & MetaWatch) – Images sent in WhatsApp chat message will be shown on the Sony SmartWatch or MetaWatch – Root access required (this option is disabled by default)

If Klout is disabled (but Fitbit is enabled), the the battery status is shown as a normal graph in the bottom-left withing the quad-view display

klout2 klout1

Klout score is shown on a graph with a range from 0-100 – 50 is at the noon position
The variance over the last week and last month is also shown as a color band that is also color coded (so you can see how the Klout score has changed over the past week/month)
0 .. 25 – Red
25 .. 50 – Yellow
50 .. 75 – Blue
75 .. 100 – Green

Need to swipe left/right to move between display screens. Please double tap or swipe up to exit app mode (to ensure battery is preserved on watch).
  • A consequence of the above is that the widget mode changes slightly to more efficiently cycle through the various screens (if enabled).
  • User Request: Option to suppress the second screen if other notifications are pending and only show the second screen after the last notification is shown on the Sony watch (option is disabled by default). Also helps with battery life on Sony if enabled.

A “Low” is shown only if the Fitbit battery is reading Low also.
      • Withings – the solid bar shows the range of the last 15 weight measures. The solid line @ Noon position is your Target Weight Objective and the longer line (within the solid bar) shows the latest reading. In the image below the target is 165 lbs and the latest reading is 166.4 lbs. The lowest reading (over the last 15 measurements) was higher than the target objective (but by only a little bit).

  • User Request – Quiet Time options (disabled by default). Can specify start time and end time – during this period notifications are not sent to the watch. Pressing widget mode during this quiet period will show that Quiet time is active. Quiet Time mode will also extend the battery life on the Sony SmartWatch.
  • User Request – New option (Sony) to only show last notification once in Widget mode. After the first time of showing an older notification it will not be shown again (until the next notification arrives). Instead “No Notification” will be shown. Disabled by default.
  • New option to vibrate when showing the 2nd screen of info (Weather, Fitbit, Withings). Disabled by default.
  • Support for Fitbit Zip (to disable showing sleep and stairs)
  • New Withings Nest-like display of weight. The colour band reflects the range of the last 15 weights values measured (relative to the goal). The objective goal weight is always at the top (center) as indicated by the white marker. The latest weight in indicated by a marker. The Colour of the band reflects the delta from the target weight as follows:

Green – within +-6 and goal is between min and max of the last 15 measures
Blue – within +-6 and goal is NOT between min and max of the last 15 measures

Yellow – between 6-12

Red – > 12

withing1

Version 3.2 Info

  •  New Fitbit screens showing individual status of actual vs goal for Sleep, Calories, Steps and Stairs. These screens will be displayed as the 2nd screen of notifications in an alternating manner (with Weather and Withings screens).

fit6

fit5 fit4 fit3

  • Invoking a Widget start (via a double tap of the side button on the Sony) will reset Fitbit 2nd screen to display the Steps statistics (as this is the most frequently updated metric).
  • Skype Extended notification now supported for two screens of data (Sony)
  • Can have more Skype vibration pulses (up to ten)
  • More vibration options (allow longer pulse times 500-900 ms)
  • See update at the bottom of this post for GMAIL support (root required) and for very advanced users only
  • GMail Android 4.2 fix
  • Root Support for WhatsApp & GMail & Exchange Email (tested on Nexus 7 running Android 4.2)
    • WhatsAPP to show chat message for all messages (Root required)
    • GMail to show sender, subject and preview for all emails and for multiple accounts
    • Exchange email to show sender, subject and preview for all emails (com.google.android.email)
    • Root support is required – tested with SU Pro (suggest setting default access to grant – otherwise you must manually grant access)
    • Sqlite3 is required (install under /system/xbin) and chmod to 777 (enable execute permissions):
      • sqlite3 for Android 4.0 (must rename to sqlite3)
      • sqlite3 for Android 4.1/4.2
      • Alternatively you can extract sqlite3 using the Android emulator (adb pull /system/xbin/sqlite)
      • Use Root Explorer to move files (to /system/xbin/) and chmod
    • These options are disabled by default. Can enable via settings:

root1

Version 3.1 Info

  • What’s App tweak to get rid of “message from”
  • Withings start-up bug fix (it was not getting data properly upon start-up before)
  • GrooveIP notifications
  • Configurable vibrations for incoming calls into GrooveIP
  • Android 4.2 accessibility wrong status fix
  • WhatsApp/Kakao/Viber/IM+ and for most other types of notifications- extended screen notification (this means that if the notification cannot fit onto the Sony watch in one screen, a second screen is shown with the next part of the notification). A third screen is shown as before (weather, fitbit or withings) if enabled.
  • For”all other notifications”, some of these notifications would not show up on the Watches. This is now fixed in 3.1.
  • Can customize # of vibrations for Google Talk separately (User Request)
  • Weather options moved up one level to be easier to find
  • Rain and Snow alerts can now be silent
  • Separated vibration options for Network/No Network alerts
  • Added network name to Wifi Connect alerts
  • Android 4.2 Google Now Tweak
  • Added for  àll other notifications`an icon specific to the notification
  • Android 4.2 Calendar (Nexus) tweak

Version 3.0 Info

  • Support for Withings and Fitbit:

  • Withings Support – The last 15 measured weights from your selected user in your Withings account is shown as displayed below (latest measure is on the right). Horizontal bars are shown at each pound increment (so in the display below the weights vary between 5 pounds over the 15 measures shown). Data is updated periodically and is configurable. A notification is shown when data is fetched (even if it has not changed). The Withings display can also be optionally added as a second notification screen (in addition to the Weather and Fitbit). If all three are enabled, the second screen rotates as follows: weather, fitbit, weather withings, weather fitbit, … – so a Withings snapshot is displayed once every six notifications.

Withings is disabled by default. To enable, go to settings->Withings Options.

Check Enable Withings. Note you must enter your email for your Withings account first, then your Withings password. After hitting OK (when entering your password, then you will be promoted to select a user from your account). The email and password are used only for the purpose of reading the weight data from your account and is not used for any other purpose nor transmitted elsewhere.

You can also enable forcing a Withings update when invoking the Widget mode. Tip – if you are in widget mode (or this is the only widget on your Sony) double-tap the side button and the widget will be shown automatically.

  • Fitbit Support! The second screen (if enabled) will alternate with the Weather/Calendar screen and the new support for your Fitbit device. Stairs, Steps, Calorie burned, Sleep and Battery status are shown along with a bar graph of each stat vs target goal. True at a glance support for Fitbit without having to fumble with your device (or look at your dashboard). Sony support as shown below.

MetaWatch support as shown below. A MetaWatch Strata widget is also available.

Fitbit is disabled by default. To enable go to the app->settings/Fitbit Options and enable Fitbit Statistics.

At this stage, you will be prompted grant access to the app using the secure OAuth mechanism;

You will be returned to Augmented SmartWatch Pro after granting access.

Note if you still have problems with getting fitbit stats, please return to this option and disable/reenable (and make sure you have a solid internet connection).

The Fitbit stats are shown as follows:

(All Watches) when an update of data is conducted a notification on the Watch appears

(Sony only) when any notification is sent to the watch and if the 2nd screen of Notifications is enabled (which it is by default). This display of information alternates with the weather/calendar second screen for subsequent notifications.

The fitbit stats shown are

Steps, Stairs, Calorie Burn, Sleep and Battery status on the Fitbit

A graph of actual vs goal is also shown

The Fitbit options are

Enable flag (disabled by default)

 Update frequency – how often to get the latest data from the Fitbit cloud

You can also enable forcing a Fitbit update when invoking the Widget mode. Tip – if you are in widget mode (or this is the only widget on your Sony) double-tap the side button and the widget will be shown automatically.

Target goal for sleep per night (default is 8 hours). The graph is adjusted based on this target goal.

Notes

Battery status is obtained once per day (to minimize data queries and battery life usage)

The update frequency is the minimum time between updates (and is approximate).

Accuracy/latency of the real-time nature of the info depends on how often you sync your fitbit. Ideally it syncs wirelessly throughout the day. Ironically, you can only do this via a Windows PC or iOS mobile device. This app does NOT sync/communicate with a Fitbit device directly. This app only communicates with the Fitbit APIs in their mandated APIs/protocol.

  • Snow icon at bottom of notification (if snowing and enabled)
  • User Request – Live Score Addicts support
  • Executive Assistant (updates) to match recent update which broke notifications for Touchdown
  • (Hopefully) a complete fix for when/if you experience a random notification that vibrates the watch but doesn’t show on watch (in prior releases, try lowering the time to display the last screen to < 6 seconds). This workaround/fix should eliminate all known instances of this symptom. I have traced this issue to the Sony software which occurs when the Android phone is under heavy load and timers are not firing precisely (hence the Sony display behavior was being overridden by the Sony software).
  • Google NOW tweaks to remove # of Cards info from notification (Sony only)
  • Filter out duplicate Skype notifications
  • Tweak Skype message notification display (Sony)
  • Tested with Android 4.2 and related tweaks to Google Now
  • MotoACTV – new option to treat a Wifi disconnect as a regular notification
  • Weather update frequency is now configurable
  • Weather can now be updated silently (e.g. no nagging notifications on the watch) – disabled is now the default setting
  • User Request – Stealth Mode – Must be enabled via app – prohibits the notification subject from being shown on watch (only the sender is shown)

Features to be considered in future releases:

    • MetaWatch Strata support

  1. First, let me tell you how much I enjoy using your software. I have a few feature suggestions, which I hope you make into new versions.

    1. Stealth mode: I like the idea of at glance but I would really like a stealth option, where it does not show the notification on screen but only vibrates with an icon. Clicking on the icon perhaps then shows the notification. This is useful when travelling in a public train/bus etc. when you don’t want someone else to look into what you just got.

    2. Hourly weather updates without notification. If I enable hourly weather updates, the watch gives me a notification and if I disable it it shows (null). What about a second option, where it updates the weather but doesn’t have to give a notification every hour. Or rather take it more extreme, like perhaps give an alert only when it changes drastically, say it’s going to rain.

    3. I would really like to try the screens feature whatever that is. I found little info on it on your site or anywhere else, but I would like to test these features. Could you email me a build with that?

    4. Right now I am using your software instead of all the Sony Extras baring the Calling feature. Is it possible to add that? and provide an accept call option, which I would so love to have, which is not provided by Sony. I am not sure if this takes it away from the purpose of your program but I think it would be a nice addition.

    Could suggest a few more features if you are interested 🙂

    • Thanks for the feedback.

      #1 – is an interesting idea I will consider implementing. I believe it would be a very easy change for me to do as follows:
      disable alerts from app – this is already there (go into app from the android phone and click on “notification enabled. click to stop”.
      enable add to new events queue within the Sony settings of the app
      *** the last step I would need to change my code for is to allow the new events app to still get the info (and show their ICON) even when my app is “disabled”
      This approach is a bit clunky as it requires fumbling around to enable/disable and uses another app to read the info.

      A proper way of doing it would involve more thought to make it very easy to toggle the state (and to allow going from icon to text). I will think about this a bit more.

      #2 is already done in version 3.0 (to be released next week). You can enable silent updates just as you describe. I also added the ability to configure the update interval. Rain/snow alerts are still shown.

      #3 There are two parts to “SCREENS”:
      Part 1 is already implemented and is useful if you have multiple Android devices and want to send notifications from one Android to another Android and hence to the Sony watch connected to the one Android. A use case I find useful is playing Spotify or Pandora from say my N7 but the title/track info is shown on my Sony Watch connected to my Galaxy Note. You would need to set this up using Notify My Android and the instructions are in the Updated for 2.4 releases hidden in this post https://augmentedtraffic.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/introducing-version-2-0-of-augmented-smartwatch-for-sony-with-support-for-the-metawatch-and-the-upcoming-pebble-watch/?wref=tp

      Part 2 is not yet released and this is where notification from your Android can show up on any HTML5 Browser you “enable”. This requires supporting infrastructure from another app (still not yet released) and some slight adjustments within my app. A use case is Spotify again, but this time it shows up on your big screen TV instead. This will take some time to roll out.

      #4 It is possible for my app to have control of the incoming phone call. I am not sure if I can answer the call though on behalf of the native dialing app (I would need to look into this). I believe the Sony calling app is nice (It is the only other app I have on my Watch and I truly don’t see myself being able to improve on this part). What I have done is have my app be used for call control of other sort of telephony systems (but this is customized work for a specific cloud system)

      Thanks for the great feedback and please keep them coming!

      • Not Google voice. Unfortunately it is a closed system (meaning I cannot really discuss). However it does hint at the possibilities for the future.

      • Hello again. It seems like I made your post into a rolling feature list 🙂

        #1. I would think of this feature as an option next to Show in New Events. Maybe something called Stealth mode, which switches all notifications to display an icon, which when clicked shows the text. It would be also a good idea for the icon to be the one of the message type it is like SMS, Mail etc.

        #2 Yes rain alerts are shown. But, I was thinking of something in the lines of “Display Alert if weather changes or will change too much from what it is.” For example, if I am in office it would be great to know rain is expected an hour from now, so I could take some decisive action. Something on that line 🙂

        #3 Thanks for putting that down. I didn’t find anything about it anywhere else. Pretty nifty.

        #4. This would be really amazing. As of right now I love the idea of Sony Call handling but it doesn’t let me answer the call, so it’s useless if I want it to pick up the call when I am driving. What I was thinking is if your app could take over the call functions and provide answer button along with reject and silent.

        I hope I can list a few more things as I have been using the Smartwatch and your app more in the last few days since I wrote the above.

        1. For notifications, which get added to the new events, the actions are Open on Phone, Closest Cam and Refresh. I am presuming this are actions in your traffic app, which hold no relevance for things like SMS events. Could you possibly look at providing relevant action triggers instead of these. For example, for SMS, it could be reply with a pre-configured SMS.

        2. I use a Galaxy Note II and I really love the built-in e-mail client because it allows me to do multi-windows. However, Augmented does not pick up notifications from the email app even if I enable the notification manually in the list. Could you please make Augmented work with the built-in client instead of using K9?

        3. This is not related but since you are building apps for the watch. Is it possible for you to do some calendar widget on the watch in your spare time. I find it pretty weird that for looking up days you need to take out my phone.

        Hope I am not too much bother. 🙂

  2. Oh, you said you didn’t see how you could improve on their calling app… One thing that would be a GREAT improvement is if you could send DTMF tones during a call, either received or placed, to handle voice menu systems. That alone would be enough for me to use Google Voice (with Google Voice, I need to hit “1” to accept the call, and there are options during the call to record, etc). Would be very handy when using a bluetooth headset, so I could control the call with the headset and watch, leaving my phone on the charger or in my pocket.

  3. p8

    1 – the click to see more will take some time. A simple (quick) way is to allow toggling enabling/disabling the sender + subject parts of the notification. Would that be useful to you?

    2- Rain/Snow alerts will work like you describe in Version 3 (for North America)

    New list

    1 – I updated the description in Version 3 (what you saw is old). Currently I allow no actions but may in the future (i am looking at this from the main app view instead though).

    2- It should work. Can you ensure “Exchange” Email is enabled and I suggest enabling the Note 10.Tweak also (if sender/subject shows up reversed). I don’t have the Note 2, but I do have the 10.1 note and the SW is (or should be) similar. I also use the Note 1 daily with my Sony. If this doesn’t work try enabling the email app via “All other Notifications” – scroll all the way to the bottom under Notifications. This later approach may not be as clean (in the display). Just in case (also) double check accessibility is enabled on the Note 2 (as K9 will be picked up regardless but other notifications depend on the accessibility being enabled properly). Samsung is unique in the email apps in that it allows for the sender/subject in every email to be shown on the watch. All other apps do not AFAIK (except for K9 and Executive Assistant with Touchdown).

    3 – I will leave Calendar widgets for someone else. This app is my spare spare time already 🙂

    I appreciate your thoughts and ideas. It helps me to understand how others are using the app. I believe the use cases are highly personal and hence everyone will have slightly different use cases.

    I am trying to move more towards mobile health (hence the Withings/Fitbit integration). If only I could get heart rate data also (but unless I go deep into BT code I don’t see this happening).

    thanks

    • Thanks mate for looking into all of it 🙂

      1. I am fine if it takes time, perhaps what you could just give a toggle like what you suggest right now, when you release 3.0.

      There is a notification tool called Watchit on the Play store that does something similar to what I am talking about (not sure if you looked into it) but it’s buggy and was what I tried before I discovered Augmented.

      2., Perfect. But, why not world-wide? I would see something like this to be incredible for travelling. In either case I am in Asia, so just North America would be sad 😦

      New list

      1. I will look forward to having actions. Not very important today but nice to have.

      2. Okay, I did try and yes it does work. Enabling all other notifications does not get it, but the Exchange thing works but it’s not as clean as the K9 notification. I will add more details once I check this in a bit more.

      3. No problems. Got one 🙂

      Just adding one possible bug and one more request for the version 3.0.

      1. I see Augmented twice in the Accessibility. Bug or is that the way it is?

      2. Can you add a way to switch off notifications during a certain time. For example, if I am sleeping with the watch. It could just switch off during the time. Perhaps, later you could have a toggle for different kind of notifications being made available and not available. For example, alarm notification should be on irrespective of toggle. But not, anything else.

      Thanks again for making a wonderful piece of software and listening. I like what you are doing with Fitbit; I am suggesting it to a friend who owns a Fitbit.

      • Toggle will be in 3.0. To enable one will need to open the app on the android phone and toggle to checkbox (as shown above). It defaults to off on app restart/phone reboot.

        The rain/snow is “hyper-aware” to one’s location and this is available for North America. I could do a keyword matching for outside of N.A. but it will not be too accurate and it will be sensitive to the keywords in the weather which needs to be tuned (in other words a lot of false alarms).

        Note email support for Samsung is only sender/subject. A preview of the email body is only possible with K9.

        The accessibility issue is not a “bug” but expected if you started with an older version of the app and updated to new versions over time (and running Jellybean). I changed the way accessibility was done from before which causes this side effect (to show it twice in the settings). I believe that If you remove the app entirely and re-install it, this should go away. It doesn’t cause any other problems so I haven’t spent the time to try to address this.

        In the current version, you can actually temporarily disable sending any notifications to the watch. This is a manual action (open the app on the Android and toggle the “Notifications Enabled. Click to stop” button.
        I believe you are asking for a automatic throttle of notifications during a sleep time period. I will consider this. I was actually thinking of trying to do this automatically for those that use a Fitbit to measure sleep, assuming I can accurately derive this from the stats I can query from Fitbit (and assuming the Fitbit is wirelessly sync’ing when one sleeps). However I can see this as being too specialized and not as useful for many.

  5. Hi, would it be possible to add a feature so that whatsapp messages get sent to another android phone using nma just like calls and sms? Thanks!

  6. Hi, please add support for Chomp SMS (more than 5 million downloads from Play Store) so that user will not receive duplicate notification. Currently will receive duplicate notification on the phone that receive the Chomp SMS and NMA feature is activated. Thanks.

  7. I’d love better breaks between sections on notifications. Even line breaks for email so you could more easily spot the email body in the mix of subject and sender. I realize that’s likely to reduce the amount of content available, but think it would be worth it …

    I’m running a Pebble paired with a Galaxy Note II.

    Your app is awesome, btw!

  8. Hi, for Version 4.1, do you mean support for Chomp SMS? I noticed that you already have support for GoSMS from Version 3.8 and you had said that Chomp SMS support would be done in Version 4.1. Thanks again for the great app and support!

    • Correct I meant ChompSMS – I updated the release notes. Note I also added a Trim Info option to all other notifications, which should also allow tweaking of any app that shows duplicate info by default.

      Either enable ChompSMS vis the Augmented app (and disable within all other notifications) or enabled in all other notifications but also enable the trim info flag.

  9. Hi,

    I have upgraded to 4.1 but still seem to be having problems with streaming Whatsapp notifications to my other phones using Notify My Android i.e. I do not get any notifications on my other phones. I have no problems with SMS.

    • For it to work properly, I added a new option under settings-phone options-enable whatsapp. This must be enabled on both android devices for it to work.

      Not very intuitive.

      If that does not work, enable all 4 options (incoming call, SMS, Whatsapp and music) and see if it works.

      Note you can check the NMA app to ensure the message is being transmitted properly. I just confirmed it does work on my devices.

      thanks

      • Yes, seems to work now thanks. Not sure what happened but there was about an 8 hour period that I didn’t get any notifications through. All good now though!

  10. Hello! Back from brief hiatus as my Sony MN2 died 😦 and then strangely revived itself after a month. Talk of weird.

    Meanwhile, looks like we still have the Skype bug in 4.0; Sony keeps vibrating during a call on Skype, displaying the time of the call.

  11. Glad your Sony is back. Skype issue is fixed in 4.2 – Appears prior method didn’t work after update.

    • Yah! I missed it too much and in the meanwhile even deliberated over the Pebble. But, somehow loved the color screen more. Will look forward for the fix for skype.

      How’s your Pebble experience going? Oh btw I don’t know if you remember my post on adding a functionality of accepting a phone call? Just found a nice app Call Handing Pro, which does it. Have bounced the idea of being able to accept viber/skype calls as well through that app to the developer.

      Meanwhile I am happy to report all my friends with Sony have Augmented Pro running 🙂

      • Thanks very much for the support of the app. Do appreciate it.

        Pebble – is going OK – next release will have some interesting stuff to account for the disconnect/reconnect issues I see with Pebble in an automated manner.

        I use the Pebble daily – as I prefer the style, but I also use a Sony for the color Fitbit graphs mostly (and as a backup as once or twice a day the Pebble gets into a disconnected state and I need to manually fix this). Hence I was forced to do a feature in 4.2 to auto-detect this and auto-fix this. It does appear to work nicely now, but a shame I had to write software to workaround this issue. Will write a post on this if I get time.

        The quality of the Pebble (reliability) is suspect. I have two Pebbles current and one charger already is dead (this appears to be a common issue in the forums).

        Moreover the SDK (Intent API) is very limited and they need to improve this quickly (at a minimum allow for vibration controls per notification).

  12. Hi,

    I just upgraded to 4.3.1 and sadly, the Whatsapp notification to NMA seems to be broken. I have stopped getting Whatsapp notifications on my other Android device when a Whatsapp message is sent to my phone.

  13. just tested with latest augmented and whatsapp and it is still working. suggest you open NMA and clear queue and try switching from Wifi to 3G. I find NME very sensitive in this regard. thanks

  14. Opened NMA to clear queue but still didn’t work. I then decided to reset my phone to give it a shot and it worked this time! Thanks for the help.

    However, I am still getting double whatsapp messages sent from NMA.

  15. Hi, would like to let you know that I tried turning off the accessibility option for the Augmented Smartwatch App (in the accessibility settings screen) leaving the other one on. It seems that this stopped the double NMA notification for Whatsapp.

  16. For the pebble watch, it seems like the option of vibrating when the connection is lost is not working. I have tried on both my Samsung Galaxy S2 and my Xperia Z phone. However, the vibrate on connect is working.

  17. Hi there, it seems like the Notify My Android feature is broken in the latest version. Can help check it please? I have tried it on two phones and they are both not working. I am also unable to change my NMA key to try and see if another key works. Thank you.

  18. i absolutely LOVE this app…I would have been very disappointed in my Pebble if it wasn’t for this!
    Big request – would it be possible to provide music control over Sonos system/app?

    Thanks!

    • Unfortunately sonos would need to support Bluetooth commands to work with current augmented app. I don”t think it does?

  19. Would it be possible to filter out the sent notifications on the Galaxy Note II? When I send mail with the default app (connected to my exchange) I get a notification for incoming as well as outgoing messages. I don’t really need or care for the outgoing …

  20. Not sure about this will need to look into this – is this with Root? or just basic notifications (non-root)hh

      • I shifted to K9 Mail just because of this. As much as I like the native client, K9 gives you better integration with Augmented.

      • Let me look into this. I assume it is when you send an email from your android – I think the issue is the the email app triggers a notification and hence augmented thinks it is a new email.

    • When I looked into this before,Kaiten did not support the Intent APIs K9 did to extract the info – so you would need to use the normal default notifications instead (enable under all other notifications in Augmented)

      thanks

      • Hi,

        Many thanks for your speedy reply. 🙂

        I don’t suppose you can let me know what’s missing so I could attempt to ask the Kaiten Mail team?

        From what I can see it broadcasts an EMAIL_RECEIVED intent and the manifest at least publishes a READ_MESSAGES permission…

        Thanks,
        Kenny

  21. Intent is this with two parameters:

    (action.equals(“com.fsck.k9.intent.action.EMAIL_RECEIVED”)) {

    String subject = bundle.getString(“com.fsck.k9.intent.extra.SUBJECT”);
    String sender = bundle.getString(“com.fsck.k9.intent.extra.FROM”);

  22. Where is the option in 6.1.1 for:
    SW2 – forces disabling showing logo/contact picture – this causes the alert to be delayed noticeably (looking up the contact info) – disabling this fixes this issue and the alert on the SW2 is instant.

    • sony watch options -> other options – disable the show logo option (but the core part is hard-coded to be disabled in code). This option only disables showing the default augemented logo – i.e once you update to 6.1.1 the issue should automatically be fixed.

  23. In version 6.6, how do you scroll through the history when using the low power mode? When I swipe to view the history it shows the last item but ten goes right back into the low power mode watch face.
