dependencies {
    compileOnly 'com.newtronlabs.watchdog:watchdog:2.0.0'

Step 3

At runtime, register your application with Newtron Watchdog

Intent restartIntent = new Intent(this, SampleActivity.class);

IWatchdog client = WatchdogFactory.getInstance()


Upon registration your listener will be notified with a ResultCode, use this code to recommend users solutions like for exmaple in the case where Newtron Watchdog is not installed in their device.

public void onRegistrationComplete(@WatchdogResult.ResultCode int resultCode)
    Log.d("WatchDog", "Registration Result: "+ resultCode);

    if(resultCode == WatchdogResult.WATCHDOG_REGISTRATION_OK)
  Log.d("WatchDog", "Registration Successful");
    else if(resultCode == WatchdogResult.WATCHDOG_NOT_INSTALLED)
  Log.d("WatchDog", "Watchdog not installed on device." 
      + "Download 'Newtron Watchdog' from App Store");
    else if(resultCode == WatchdogResult.WATCHDOG_UNREGISTERED)
   Log.d("WatchDog", "Unregistered Successfully");
    else if(resultCode == WatchdogResult.WATCHDOG_VERSION_MISMATCH)
 Log.d("WatchDog", "Version mismatch." 
     + "Ensure you have the latest version of Watchdog and Libraries");
    else if(resultCode == WatchdogResult.WATCHDOG_FAILED)
 Log.d("WatchDog", "Unrecoverable Failure.");
