Wearable Reply

While Google made a very nice wearable activity to reply to notifications, they didn't make a good Intent to compose text within apps running Android Wear 2.0. This library aims to simplify allowing text input in your app, via voice, keyboard, or canned responses. Google really should have provided something like this from the start, and not juse kept it for notifications.

Including It In Your Project

To include it in your project, add this to your module's build.gradle file:

dependencies {
	compile 'com.klinkerapps:wearable-reply:1.0.01

Usage is really simple. Start the reply activity with:

WearableReplyActivity.start(activity, R.array.reply_options);
WearableReplyActivity.start(activity, new String[] {"test 1", "test 2" });

If you omit the String[] or the array resource, the WearableReplyActivity will display the default canned responses: "Yes", "No", "Maybe", "Ok", and "Thanks".

When the user has done the text input, the results will be delivered to your Activity#onActivityResult method, and can be pulled with:

protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

    String result = WearableReplyActivity.getResultText(data);
    if (result != null) {
        Toast.makeText(this, result, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();


Please fork this repository and contribute back using pull requests. Features can be requested using issues. All code, comments, and critiques are greatly appreciated.
