The wearables industry is becoming increasingly entertaining, as many companies start to focus on advanced devices, while consumers seem to react positive to all trend setters have to offer. Smartwatches have seen a boost in sales lately, sign that users are starting to trust and try out the new technology. As a response to that, Android Wear launches interactive watch faces.
For most of us, technological advancement is not enough if it fails to come with a decent flavor of looks. No matter how great the features are, they must be wrapped in a nice package, tied up with a red and fancy bow. Google has caught the trick and now Android’s Wear faces are getting an image upgrade. This is a highly welcomed change, as developers were able to display giant amounts of information on their watch faces but users were unable to interact with it.
Starting with today, users will be able to install interactive watch faces that allow them to pull up more information and launch apps with a single tap, right from the watch face.
The new update will work best in Google Translate’s advantage, that will be even more interactive, easy to use and more reliable, compared to what it offers on your cellphone. Google Translate on Android Wear supports 44 languages and works with the built-in microphone in your watch.
All the work is fairly simple, you simply speak into the watch, flip your wrist and there you have it, the translation you’ve been searching for. Google Translate for Android Wear is designed to automatically recognize what languages are being spoken.
When it comes to Android Faces, Google has already worked with a team of developers to test the completely new functionality. Moreover, the tech giant has been working together with Android Armour to build an interactive-centric watch face.
They also have this Together Watch face, dedicated to all those who have found true love. If you want to share photos and emoji with your loved ones, the Together watch face will work perfectly for you.
All the new faces are designed to deliver more content and in a more interactive manner, whenever one taps on the screen of their watches. For instance, the Bits Watch Face is designed to allow you to find out information about the weather, calendar or other interests that will be available to you directly from the main screen.
Another update, over-the-air, dedicated to the 1.3 version will most probably roll out over the following weeks. Moreover, the Android Developers Blog announced that Wi-Fi support will come out soon to the LG G Watch R.
