Expand on your Android development capabilities by building applications for Android Wear
This book will introduce you to the very popular Android Wear platform with hands-on instructions for building Android Wear applications. You will start with an introduction to the architecture of Android, followed by an in-depth look at the design of Android applications and user interfaces using Android Studio. You will see how to create basic and custom notifications for your apps, and synchronize data from the wearable device with the handheld mobile device. More advanced topics such as intents, the Gradle build configuration and the implementation of build variants, and packaging and deploying from a single project code base are also covered.
