Turns out the Fitbit's got a ton of customization

What it does

OK get this - its a Fitbit app that tells you whether you are dead or alive. Ingenious. It's got some other cool shenanigans on the side as well.

How I built it

Lots of soda and a little bit of code.

Challenges I ran into

Fitbit has documented pretty much 25% of their code and black boxes some of the key CSS architecture involved in building their stuff. That sucks. Also they have barely fleshed out the most basic of apps and functions. Boo. Other challenges were me being stupid, as usual.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It works.

What I learned

Actually learned a ton about how smartwatches work and how they communicate with their paired devices, etc. It's like a microcosm of code by itself.

What's next for Dead or Alive
