Connect IQ SDK Has Reached 1.0.0

01/05/15 @ 02:16 PM

Today, we’re launching the official version of the Connect IQ SDK. It’s no longer a preview, ladies and gentlemen. It’s Connect IQ 1.0.0 Aikido Monkey. Here’s what’s new in this version:

• Simulators and device support for new compatible devices.
• Access to device settings, such as time format (12-hour vs. 24-hour) and metric vs. statute.
• Support for gestured watch faces. Previously, watch faces had been limited to updating once a minute. Now, watch faces can enable timers when you gesture that you’re looking at the watch.
• Ability to generate apps for the Connect IQ Store using the Package tool.

If you’re using the first or second preview SDKs, you’ll definitely want to update to version 1.0.0. And don’t forget you can now upload your watch faces and data fields to the Connect IQ Store.
