Reliable way of detecting a Ticwatch

Post by AlexCurran » Fri Feb 17, 2017 10:55 am

I am writing my wearable code to run on Android Wear and Ticwatch.
What is a reliable way of checking if the current device is a Ticwatch and therefore needs to send all data and message requests using Mobvoi API.

e.g. something like
android.os.Build.MODEL.startsWith("Ticwatch")

although I dont think that would be a good check to support all Ticwatch models.

i hope you get some official response soon...
what app are you porting over? in support of devs porting to the device i already own, i'll proactively purchase it if you post the play store link here. i suspect others would as well. "vote with your wallet" as they say, and i'll happily vote for devs supporting my watch :)

Hi Alex,

Please use "com.mobvoi.android.common.MobvoiApiManager#isMmsAvailable()" to check if the current watch is power by Ticwear OS.
