We wanted to provide a handy way to check up on your stocks without hassling with a clumsy old phone or computer. Smart watches, the wave of the future, provide an easy and stress-free way to watch your financial futures rise or plummet. Never again will you be worried about the performance of your portfolio on a crowded bus ride or your morning run!
Our code utilizes the latest and greatest software from Pebble, Bloomberg, and Node.js to provide a lightweight framework that exists totally on your smartwatch to check stocks. It relies on a hybrid webserver with a C++ implementation of Bloomberg's Financial APIs and a built-from-scratch Node.js server, which interfaces with pebble-js and standard Pebble C interface design for the front end.
