    I'm thinking about getting an Android watch, mostly for golf. I use an app (Golf Pad GPS) that tracks my golf shots with GPS. It has smartwatch integration, so I can capture the location and the club I used via the watch interface.

    I'm also a baseball nut; could I be using a streaming app in the foreground on the phone, the golf app running in the background, and interact with the golf app through the watch? Or does the app you're running on the watch have to be the "active" app on the phone?

    Certain apps will run in the background on your watch...think it varies case by case though
