The HMT is fundamentally an Android 8.1 device. It runs standard Android applications and web pages.
However, due to the large number of elements that appear on an average web page WearHF often needs assistance in understanding how to interpret them.
WearML gives the developer greater control over the user interface of a web page – additional captions or hints can be overlaid onto any web page, with a great deal of artistic control, to indicate to the user which controls are speech enabled.
All of the WearML tags will be skipped by regular browsers, but read in by the HMT browser. In this way, production web pages (or HTML5 apps) can be built for all platforms including HMT.
This supported framework is part of a public BETA.
