Working on an iOS companion app for my new #pinetime! Wish I knew anything about Swift or SwiftUI or BLE or XCode or iOS notifications or any of the other myriad things that would make this not such a strug.
I do have some pretty basic functionality though! Read/subscribe to HRM & battery levels and display on app UI, set the time on the watch, send test notifications, and listen for InfiniTime music app button presses.
