Wearable technology has been huge in fitness groups, but people tend to overlook that with so many sensors they can be used to assist first responders.
How it works
Lifeline reads sensor data from the wearables' accelerometers to provide users with quick access to their emergency contacts
Challenges I ran into
Managing asynchronous calls in android proved to be a great challenge since interacting with some wearables require the connection to be kept on a separate thread.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Managed to sync a Pebble and a Microsoft Band into an android app
