Get the Connect IQ SDK now to start building apps for our wearable devices. The SDK includes a device simulator so you have a testing platform for what you’re building.

Developer Philosophy

We designed the Connect IQ tools so that they’re easy to use. You’ll be empowered at all levels with development tools that are tightly integrated with our hardware. This tight integration is what creates the purpose-driven user experience that consumers love and expect from our products.

Monkey C — A New Programming Language

The backbone of the Connect IQ SDK is the new language that we built from the ground up. This language, Monkey C, should be familiar if you already know languages like Java™, Ruby and Python. Monkey C was created to round out the sharp edges of writing apps for wearable devices. It lets you focus on the user and less on resource constraints.

Build something with us, because together, your innovation has no boundaries.
