Get Started for Wearable

The Get Started Tutorial teaches you how to create basic Tizen applications for wearable device, especially smart watches.

The Tizen supports three primary application types for wearable devices:

  • Native application is developed using C language. Developer can use the dozens of native API modules that cover a large range of capabilities such as camera, GPS, and accelerometer in addition to more advanced system settings and functionality.
  • Web application is a Web site stored on your device and built using Web-native languages, such as HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. The Web application uses the Tizen Web Framework to interact with the native subsystems.
  • .NET application is a new way to develop applications for the Tizen operating system using C# language.

Native Application

You can create various native applications to run on smart watches. Tizen Studio supports a few project templates, which automatically create basic functionalities for applications.

The following guide demonstrates how to create and run your first native application with the project templates:

Web Application

You can create various Web applications to run on smart watches. Tizen Studio supports a few project templates, which automatically create basic functionalities for applications.

The following guide demonstrates how to create and run your first Web application with the project templates:

First, ensure that you have installed the latest version of Tizen Studio. Download Tizen Studio.

.NET Application

The following guide demonstrates how to create and run a basic Tizen .NET application:

  • Wearable .NET application

    A wearable application is targeted to run on a smart watch. The applications can be optimized for the smaller screen.

First, ensure that you have installed the latest version of Visual Studio Tools for Tizen. Download Visual Studio Tools for Tizen.
