I am trying to make an on-board application for my metawear. In my project, the idea would be that the sensors on the metawear would sense a certain amount of motion then send an alert to an iphone or another metawear. Here is a simple example:
Someone is running, when they start to run the metawear senses that event and sends an alert via bluetooth low energy to another metawear which would vibrate. It would also send the alert to a smartphone.
I have bought the items from the firmware guide but am questioning if I am going about this process in the right way. I have a very limited knowledge of firmware and hardware. Also, due to the very small board, the level of detail soldering will be very difficult and the high temperature could pose problems too. Also, I am curious what the firmware does? is it solely based on monitoring power levels or what? My thoughts would be that if I could build a program similar to arduino and load it to the board that would be best. Is this possible? What is the easiest way to do this? Do I need to solder or can I just use the micro-usb to program?
I know there are a lot of questions here but I appreciate any help I can get. Thank you so much!
