    I was responding an earlier thread over here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1868229

    Kinda gave me an idea for an app, that I would find useful myself.

    Given that the watch is worn on the wrist and has an accelerometer, it would be a great tool at measuring any stroke of the hand, for any kind of activity you could think of.

    I think if I could keep track, during an activity, of number of strokes, frequency, etc... it could help improving my skills in that activity.

    I am excited about this idea

    Unfortunately, no developer has access to the accelerometer until the full SDK gets released.

    yeah we could crowdsource the data and come up with an improved technique; in app purchases for training, etc...

    In all seriousness, the general idea is a good one, and can have a practical application: measuring each repetition during weightlifting at the gym.

    That depends on your definition of a shake weight.

    The Apple Watch itself should use kinetic energy to charge it, that way when you're doing your umm reps, with the "shake weight", you could be charging your watch;)

    Just like the Wankband
    Google it:p

    But the whole idea seems nuts if you ask me.

    A certain adult entertainment site is actually releasing a wearable designed to generate power from that particular motion. Apparently, it will have a usb out so you can charge your phone using alternatively generated energy.

    yes but I shall prepare the future once they find out about each other through my dozen devices vibrating at the same time with each text, sexy pics syncing to every single device, etc... let's face it, mistakes are bound to happen

    ----------

    I will also contact the developer of i-Ruler to see if we can bundle it with his ruler app.

    I am also thinking of integrating with ResearchKit, Apple just made it open source this week.

    Already done :)

    Have been using this app on my iPhone and iPad for a few weeks. Having the calculator and other tools available in the notification screen has been very useful.

    The last update added support for the watch. Looking forward to trying it out when I get mine.
