    Happy to! I may need to figure out how to mimic the Bangle in Python or something first though for testing. Does anyone have any recomendations for Bluetooth (LE) libraries?

    Just ordered my Bangle a few short hours ago, now dizzy with anticipation. I second this thread is exceptional.

    Personally I'm hoping to have health check status for various web services I maintain displayed as a widget. @epw I think you're use case trumps mine though, quite literally a health check, very worthwhile to be sure.

    It's just a shame the Android API appears to stop an app from executing background tasks more often than every 15 minutes

    @Gordon my understanding is that is a limitation of the WorkManager API (I have yet to try it out), yes? I believe you make reference to this in your comments (see MIN_PERIODIC_INTERVAL_MILLIS).

    It seems some people work around this by scheduling a OneTimeWorkRequest instead, with a set delay to control the execution frequency, and ending by calling another OneTimeWorkRequest.

    Hard not to wrinkle my nose a little bit at this, but Android does seem to have collected an awful lot of scheduling APIs by now, and if you simply want to run your task every 5 minutes... well..
