    • Auto tracking will stop as follows:
      • automatically after 5 minutes of no location movement (e.g. if you stop driving)
      • automatically (if not in Toronto) after a certain distance is travelled – due to API restrictions

      • vibrationCount:2: // will vibrate Wear 2 times for image – default is 2
      • vibrationPulseOn:300: // each vibration pulse is 300 ms – default is 300ms
      • wearImageOn:6000: // image will be shown for 6000 ms – default is 10000ms
      • Example: intent1.putExtra(“sender”,

“showimagesender:Closest Camera:subject:Highway 7 @ Highway 404:vibrationCount:2:vibrationPulseOn:400:wearImageOn:6000:”);

    • Alerts that have a sender with a contact picture will be shown using Augmented Wear (if installed and the optimize for Sender Pictures is enabled). These alerts will be shown in two screen updates (image of the sender alert and the text of the alert).

    • IMAG0559IMAG0560
    • Augmented SmartWatch Pro has been updated to use this feature for closest camera and Google Now alerts

        intent1.putExtra(“subject”, ***URL of image to show ***));


Augmented Wear is free and available here

    • Fix for Hangout messages to provide the correct # of vibration pulses (hangouts must be enabled via optimized notifications in Augmented settings)
    • Tweaked Weather Update Alert
    • IMAG0554

New in Version 7.5.2

  • Regression bug fix – quiet time and high priority senders now working again
  • Android Wear
    • Optimize For Sender Picture Feature (enabled by default, can be disabled in settings):
      • If enabled, When a sender’s picture is found – it is shown in full screen mode on the Wear and the subject is shown in the alert (for only two lines max). Note one very key advantage of Augmented is that it always queries for the Sender’s picture in the contact info for all alerts – so even if an app does not normally show the picture on the Android Wear using the default Wear alerts, Augmented will!


  • If enabled, When a sender’s picture is not found then the default background image is shown (as well as sender/subject in alert).
  • IMAG0550

    • Smart Haptics – ability to customize GMail vibration pattern separately

New in Version 7.5

  • Android Wear
    • More info here – Auto Enhanced Haptic Feedback – Taking the cue from Google Maps (short-short-long) vibration cues. Alerts are enhanced as follows:
      • For high priority senders – the # (from 1 to 4) of the high priority sender is pulsed to the Wear watch (after the normal # of pulses to indicate a high priority sender). The # is a short pulse(s) which is the vibration duration / 3;
        • For example – assume we set high priority vibrations to 2 and the high priority sender is #3 then the Android Wear will pulse – long-long-short-short-short
      • SMS – coded to N-1 short and 1 long pulse – e.g. coded as short-short-long (if set to 3 vibration pulses).
      • Network connected or Android Wear re-connect message – coded to all short pulses – e.g. code as short-short-short (if network disconnect is set to 3 vibration pulses)
      • 680newstraffic and Google Now alerts are coded as one short pulse
      • Rain Alerts are coded as two short pulses

New  in Version 7.0.0

  • Sony SW2 – support for new widget in watchface (update from Sony) via adding to new events queue (new option – disabled by default) – You will need to enable the option then reboot your android for it to take effect (Sony restriction).


  • New Hybrid watchface mode to complement the new Sony custom watchfaces.  New Hybrid option added (disabled by default). When enabled, the augmented low-power watchface is showing only for 5 minutes after every alert and if there is an upcoming meeting in the next 15 minutes. Otherwise the default Sony watchface is shown. This should tremendously help with battery life and truly have a context-sensitive Sony SW2! Tip – disable vibrations for augmented in the Sony SW2 settings for notifications (under apps on the SW2) – this controls the vibrations for new events (from Augmented) – hence the vibrations will be fully controlled from the Augmented app instead.
    • Also disable the “Enable Watchface Battery-Savings” option to get minute accurate updates in the augmented watchface.

  1. Pingback: Qualcomm Toq Gains Augmented SmartWatch Pro Support, Its First Important Win Since The SDK's Release

  2. Is there a known issue with Motoactv? Since i’ve updated to Version 6.8.1, Augmented Smartwatch is not shown as a plug-in in Motoactv Software.

    • no change in 6.8.1 for MotoACTV – I think sometimes there is a race (timing) issue with the MotoACTV software in recognizing plug-ins. Suggest rebooting your android and starting the MotoACTV software first.


  3. Is time to adjust none-half-wide char showing? Remind you this because you said you often forget many users do not use English. (My English expression isn’t very good, too)

  4. Hello,
    I just purchased the Pro version and have Sony smart watch 2. I get the notification on my watch but it never clears. The watch never goes back into the screensaver mode “with the watch face”. I have to push the button on the watch to force the watch face screensaver to come back on.

    Is there a setting I’m missing?

    • reboot watch and phone and try a test notification – does this still happen – the time to show first screen is the time an alert shows on the watch when it arrives on your android in an entirely “hands-free” mode in that you do not touch the watch or any button on the watch at all. If you do, then the app does stay “on”. The use case is an alert shows on your watch then it reverts to your watchface.

  5. can’t get Google Navigation sent to my SW2 , using Version 7.4.1 and Google Maps 8.1.1 . All other things i have setup are working great.
    Earlier everything was working well, but, not used for a while and unsure which version everything stopped working, Is it possible advise the settings needed to make it work.
    Turned on in “optimized notification options” , but to no avail.

    • I think it is related to a maps update – are you using accessibility or notifications (Access under security settings)?
      You should use the latter – you will need to disable the “force accessibility option”in augmented also

  7. I am using an Android with a Pebble. Both are up to date wrt to OS etc. I am not able to get Google Navigation sent to Pebble. I believe I have things setup correctly but no luck. Other alerts are working fine.

      • Under Optimized Notifications > Google Navigation Options I have the following items checked:
        Goggle Navigation Directions
        Show Direction Changes
        Control Second Screen (I do not know what the 2nd screen is, but it was checked by default if I recall.

        Time to Waite between Notifications is set to 1 minute.
        Distance Threshold is set to 500. I am not sure what the unit of measure is here.

        Optimize for Phone is NOT checked.

  8. there are two ways on the pebble

    #1 – alerts on Pebble – in this case check only the first two boxes;

    #2 using the music app on the Pebble – do you have this enabled in augmented – e.g. augmented controls what is shown when you select the native Pebble music app on your pebble.

    • i have tried both and neither seem to work. I would like to use the #1 option if that is simplest. Right now I am not able to get that to work I just went in and checked the first two options (Google Navigation Directions and Show Direction Changes) and tried it, but the direction changes did not go to Pebble. My Music app in Pebble Options is also set to Google Play at this time.

  9. Can you ensure under Pebble options -> notification specific options that this flag is disabled;

    Optimize Navigation Info


  10. ok I just tested this on an android 4.4 device, latest augmented and latest pebble and it works.

    I used the nav settings you have.

    quick question are you on 4.4 and if so do you use accessibility or security->notification access – (it should be the latter) and turn force accessibility off,.

    • I corrected the setting suggested above and it now works!
      Thank you augmented!
      I really appreciate you effort to get to the bottom of my issue!
      Kudos! It must be a nightmare to support so many different configuration options between watches and phones and to make them work. Thanks again!
