Dave-ee Jones Posted April 23, 2018 Share Posted April 23, 2018 Anyone had any experience doing a bit of smartwatch hacking? There are lots of possibilities to what a smartwatch could be useful for, e.g.: Network Scanning on the go (assuming the watch had WiFi) This would mean I could just look at my watch, hit 'Scan' and start scanning the network as I'm doing something else, not needing to hold a phone or anything like that. More inconspicuous. Could just start a service on your phone and grab data from your phone, making your phone do all the hard work while you monitor it on your watch. Harder, but makes more sense. Bluetooth mouse/keyboard Would be very nice to be able to pair my watch with a USB dongle and then plug the dongle into a PC and have it automatically act as a bluetooth mouse without any client-side programs to handle input - just like a normal bluetooth mouse/keyboard (could be achieved by spoofing VID/PIDs) These are just 2 examples, but I think they would make a very nice touch to my EDC. Looking into creating apps for the smartwatch now. For those wondering, it's probably the worst one to develop for - a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. No where near as easy to hack as Wear OS ?
