  • how will adapting apps work then? Is the watch using the same app loader?

    Yes, I'm still sorting out the specifics (I'm open to ideas for how to do this in a nice way!). But we're using the same app loader, and right now apps that I know either work or don't work are tagged b2 or bno2 so for instance https://banglejs.com/apps/#b2 will show you apps that work on Bangle.js 2.

    I'm considering adding a prompt at boot (like https://espruino.com/apps), but when you first connect the app loader will adjust the filter options automatically so you only see apps that will definitely work.

    I'm also working on some libraries which should make it easier to target both devices with one app, and I'll be going through the more popular existing apps converting them to use that as well.

  • Published my preview video here:

    It is on Spanish (because I am spaniard) so if you know anyone that speaks spanish send it to him 😄

  • How much do you expect the price to drop for the proper release?

  • The current Bangle.js is £58.30 ex VAT for one, and I'm expecting the new Bangle to be a tad more as the underlying hardware is costing me more. It should still end up under £70 ex VAT though.

  • Super excited about it!

  • Definitively I will buy it.
    But i would like to have best practices or templates to make an app cross compatible for BJS1 and 2 .
    I assume the cost of lossing part of the screen due different resolutions

    Yes, absolutely. I'm working on that! Right now the idea is to try and use the layout library as much as possible - more info on that at http://forum.espruino.com/conversations/­367445/#comment16163673
