Clockwise is a watch face framework for Android Wear developed by ustwo. It extends the Android Wear Watch Face API and provides base classes and helpers for quickly and correctly developing watch faces. This includes properly handling the various modes of operation, hardware constraints, changes in date/time/time zone, access to data, and performance considerations.
ustwo worked with Google to develop the first watch faces on the Android Wear platform, and in doing so, we learned a great deal and identified the benefit of extending the existing watch face API into an open source framework. The purpose of Clockwise is to help developers more easily consider the inherent nuances in developing watch faces on the Android Wear platform, including varying hardware specifications and battery life conservation. The goal is that by utilizing the Clockwise development framework in conjunction with the Watch Face design guidelines (co-created with ustwo), developers can enhance the user's experience on Android Wear.
Have a look at the Clockwise Wiki for more details on how to integrate Clockwise as well as full documentation and code samples.
Once you are prepared to build your watch face using Clockwise, head over to our Clockwise Samples GitHub repository for some fully functional watch faces that we've made available.
