Movesense is available through CocoaPods. To install it, make sure the following line is part of your Podfile (assumes properly configured ssh connection):

pod 'Movesense', :git => 'ssh://'

Building the example project

To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install in the IOS/iOS-Example directory first. Make sure you have configured your ssh public key to bitbucket beforehand. This phase should not produce any errors:

$ cd IOS/iOS-Example/
$ pod install

Generating Pods project
Integrating client project
Sending stats
Pod installation complete! There are 4 dependencies from the Podfile and 4 total pods installed.

Then open 'movesense-swiftapp.xcworkspace' in Xcode and build target 'movesense-swiftapp'.

Modifying bundle identifier

You need to replace default 'com.suunto.movesense' bundle identifier with your own bundle identifier.

Signing the application

In order to sign the application, you need to setup your own developer provisioning profile in Xcode.

Running the application

After the previous step, you are ready to go and can install the application on the device.

However, you still need to enable the developer certificate on your iPhone in Settings -> General -> Device Management.

Finally, run the app!

MDS Library usage

See IOS/Movesense/readme.txt



Open 'Android/samples/ConnectivityAPISample/build.gradle' in Android Studio (the sample shows how to connect to Movesense and do a simple GET request).
For more complex data queries (such as reading data from sensors) consult Android/samples/sampleapp.

Known issues

Moving outside maximum BLE range can cause Android/samples/sampleapp to crash. Android/samples/ConnectivityAPISample should be able to properly handle these situations.

Firmware Update

Wireless Update over Bluetooth Low-energy (BLE)

The latest Movesense device firmware supports wireless update using Nordic's DFU protocol. This requires operation of both the Movesense Example App as well as the Nordic's nRF Toolbox.

WARNING: in case the new firmware is not based on the latest Movesense stack, the device looses the capability to be updated!!!
