What is a WXB file?
watchX is a smartwatch for which users can create their own programs. For example, watchX users could create and install a program that allows their watch to sense and measure its own movement.
Typically, users create watchX programs using watchX Blocks, a block-based code editor. WatchX Blocks saves watchX programs as WXB files.
How do I upload a WXB file to a watchX?
To upload the program a WXB file contains to a watchX, users must:
- Connect their watchX to their PC.
- Open their WXB file in watchX Blocks.
- Select Program → Upload program.
The program will then appear on the user's watchX.
NOTE: In addition to watchX Blocks' default block-based display, the program also shows the code WXB files contain as Arduino Source Code, akin to the code found in .INO files, and as XML.
How to open a WXB file
WXB files are meant to be opened in watchX Blocks (Windows, Mac). To open a WXB file in watchX Blocks, select File → Open from the program's menu bar. Then, navigate to and open your WXB file.
If you do not have access to watchX Blocks, or you just want to see the XML your WXB file contains, you can also open the file in Microsoft Visual Studio Code (cross-platform), GitHub Atom (cross-platform), or any other text editor.
