Newbee: Companion app with Tizen .Net possible?


I am new to development for Tizen. A few days ago I got my Galaxy watch 46mm LTE and want to create a simple app for it.

I am an experienced software developer so I started to dive into Tizen development. I want to create an app where one part runs on th watch and the other part on my Android mobile device (Galaxy Note 4). I think this kind of app is called companion app - right? 

Since I am familiar with C# development using Microsoft Visual Studio I saw that there is Tizen .NET.

My question now, is it possible to develop a companion app using Tizen .NET and Visual Studio? Can I develop the part for the watch and also for the mobile device (my Galaxy Note 4)? If yes can someone give me any start-up assistance please?

Thanks a lot...

Samsung Offers Accessory SDK for the feature you are looking for. The latest release of Accessory SDK is 2.6.1 on August, 2018, the latest SDK version support only Tizen Native & Tizen Web Applications yet according to the Guides & Samples.

Tizen .NET is new on town, We hope Tizen .NET support for Accessory SDK will be introduced soon.
