Nfc detection with Estimote on HUAWEI Watch 2.0


#1

I want to launch nfc detection app on the watch, so I sent the Android_Manifeset.xml as following.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="watch">
<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.type.watch" />
<application
    android:allowBackup="true"
    android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
    android:label="@string/app_name"
    android:supportsRtl="true"
    android:theme="@android:style/Theme.DeviceDefault">
    <activity
        android:name=".MainActivity"
        android:label="@string/app_name">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.nfc.action.NDEF_DISCOVERED" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
                <data
                    android:host="ext"
                    android:pathPrefix="/estimote.com:id"
                    android:scheme="vnd.android.nfc" />
            </intent-filter>
        </intent-filter>
    </activity>
</application>
Also, I have set the AAR record in my beacon. BUT when I touch the HUAWEI Watch 2.0 with my beacon. It does not show the activity page designed? What should I do in such circumstance? Is there any difference between nfc detection in watch and phone?

Thanks!

Hi @yang, welcome to the forums!

Two questions to start with: have you checked the NFC records on the beacon with your phone?
Right now, our software is focused on phones, and we haven’t ran checks on Android Wear, so our experience is rather limited.
But we’ll try to figure things out with you :slight_smile:

Hello @Raphael !
Thanks for your explaination.
I have checked that the watch currently cannot read beacon’s NFC record. This is probably because the watch has limitation on its NFC chip.
Hope you have a further progress with beacon on watch :slight_smile:
