AllSeenAlliance is the 11th Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, aiming to ease communication between various devices and democratize the IOT. The AllJoyn SDK suite by AllSeen Alliance allows devices within close proximity to find and communicate with one another using peer to peer networks. The SDK comes with various API language bindings to comply with a diverse array of operating systems and chipsets. The SDK is written in C & C++ for compatibility with various use cases. Supported operating systems include: Android, Thin Client, iOS and OS/X, Linux, Unity, and Windows 7.

The SDK supports any wearable running Samsung's Tizen operating system, but that's an extremely limited number of devices at the moment, with just the Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches filling the space.
