Asteroid OS Client
is someone interested in a Asteroid OS https://asteroidos.org/ client for ubuntu touch? I play with the thought to develop one. Hope I find the time to start with it ;-).

Wow! Sounds great. I would appreciate a lot if some devs give some love to it. Unfortunately I am no dev...

I'd absolutely love it! I don't have a smart watch yet but this would spur me on to get one! Unfortunately, I'm in the same position as Bastos; I'm no dev either
I looked into it myself but didn't have the time to create one for UbTouch
AsteroidOS uses Bluetooth LE GATT profiles to handle device communications, so this could possibly be made with Python and PyBluez. The project to look at would be asteroidos-btsyncd and the Android Sync client's source. btsyncd may be the best reference though since that's the watch-side daemon for handling bluetooth communications.
The best part about having one for Ubuntu Touch, if it's made in python or a language that's easily installed on normal Ubuntu, it could possibly be used on other Linux distributions so you could use an AsteroidOS watch on any linux device.
I‘ll start with a Ubuntu touch client for Asteroid OS in the next weeks. I‘ve wrote with FlorentRevest the Initiator and developer of Asteroid OS. He provides a repository with a platform independent C++ Qt library for writing Asteroid clients https://github.com/AsteroidOS/libasteroid. There is also an cli example. Currently he is working on a sailfish os client https://github.com/AsteroidOS/starfish. He is paying attention to be compatible as much as possible with Ubuntu touch. I’ll create a fork of the sailfish client. I should be able to use 90 % of this code. The major part would be the rewrite of the qml code for Ubuntu touch.

That would be nice indeed.

The two seems stalled; no commit for several months.
