Very simple application that uses the coarse location as well as the Google Play Services activity detection API to automatically set the display brightness on your Android Wear.

This is only necessary for watches that don't have an ambient light sensor.

Sunrise and sunset times are calculated based on your location.

If it's night time, the brightness will always be set to the lowest.

If it's day time, it will determine the brightness, between medium and high, based on the current user activity. For example, if the user is driving the brightness will always be set to the highest. If the user is still, then the brightness will be set to medium.

By using the activity detection, we are making assumptions to determine whether the user is indoors, or outdoors, and then setting the display brightness on the watch based on that.

For battery saving purposes, there may be a delay between each detection.

    Now just needs some customisation options. For example a global on/off setting (for when user wants manual control again), and custom brightness levels per "state" (since each person has different preferences). Lots of potential here though.
