Setting Up an Android 5 Wearables Application Development Workstation
Now that you have some foundational knowledge about wearables and what Android 5 has added to make the wearable applications memorable, this chapter will help you put together another type of foundation. Your development workstation is the most important combination of hardware and software for reaching your goal of Pro Android Wearables application development. Here I will spend some time upfront considering the hardware you’ll need and the software infrastructure that you will need to put together a professional, well-rounded, Android software development workstation with a dozen arrows in your software development quiver right off the bat (strange analogy mix isn’t it? Robin Hood and baseball). Then you will have everything you need for the rest of the book, no matter what type of wearable app you develop!
