Its supposed to be an interface that can talk to a fitbit. But the one I 
bought is wifi only I think since the usb clipon intended to be used for 
recharging it, has only 2 contacts. And the rock64 doesn't have wifi 
hardware that I know of. One of the reasons I bought a couple of them, 
as its required it be turned off on a pi for anything like rt-preempt 
use on a pi as its noise interferes with everything else but then found 
there is no simple "make install" for a realtime kernel thats doesn't 
just brick the sdcard. And everytime someone on the pine64 forum points 
me at another way to do it, I grab the sw, only to find its not been 
updated since 2012? I've wasted $250 so far trying.
Anyway, I'll bring in the 2nd one and see if an lshw shows a wifi with a 
minimal stretch +xfce install.
Quick answer, no. That leaves an r-pi3b, which does have wifi. But since 
its busy drowning frogs outside, I'll see if I can find a stretch 
install for it tomorrow. Currently has a jessie install.

So, is galileo shown for armhf's?

The reason for posting here is that galileo is supposedly written in 
python, but don't know if 2 or 3.

Thanks, Stanley.
