Atualização do Android Wear

DSC07024

Apesar de gostar muito do meu relógio Moto 360, ainda fico um pouco descontente com o fato de precisar carregar sua bateria todos os dias ou ainda enfrentar alguns problemas com pequenos bugs que fazem ele perder o celular e ficar vibrando sem parar, mas de uma maneira geral a experiência ainda é mais positiva do que negativa. Ontem o Google divulgou a liberação de uma nova atualização para o smartwatch com uma bela lista de novidades, sendo que as que mais me chamaram a atenção foram o suporte do WiFi, o Always-on screen, always-on apps, o New launcher & Wrist gesture.

Agora o negócio é esperar a novidade chegar por aqui para poder contar como o Moto 360 ficou depois da atualização! Por hora deixo a lista completa das novidades publicada pelo Google.

– Always-on screen, always-on apps: Most Android Wear watches include an always-on screen—no tapping, twisting or shaking required to see what time it is. Now we’re expanding this option to apps, so they can stay visible as long as you need them, instead of disappearing when you drop your arm. Perfect for running, navigating, or grocery shopping!

– New launcher & Wrist gestures: Now you can access your apps and contacts by simply swiping left from the watch face. Android Wear also now responds to specific navigation gestures so you can scroll between cards with a simple flick of the wrist. Learn more with our YouTube video.

– Draw emojis: In response to texts, instant messages, or emails, you can now send emojis to your contacts by drawing them on your watch screen. The watch will recognize the emoji you drew and send it via whichever messaging app you’re using. Give it a try by selecting “Draw emoji” whenever you’re replying to a message!

– Heads-up notifications: Incoming notifications like text messages will now appear on-screen even when you’re looking at something else on your watch, like directions or fitness stats, so you won’t miss anything important.

– Switching watches made easier: The Android Wear companion app now lets you pair your phone with more than one watch at a time – ideal for swapping watches to match your style.

– Change your font size: Want to see more text on your watch screen? Or less? You can now adjust the font size from your watch’s settings.

– Lock your watch’s screen: Want to lock your watch’s screen when you’re not wearing it? Turn on the new “Screen lock” feature from your watch’s settings. When enabled, if your watch detects you’re not wearing it (or it loses the connection to your phone) for a period of time, then your specified swipe pattern will be required to unlock it.

– One of the most exciting features of this Android Wear update is Wi-Fi support. This will be available on:

LG Watch Urbane (details on this new watch here)
Moto 360
Sony Smartwatch 3
Samsung Gear Live

To enjoy Wi-Fi support, make sure it is enabled in your Android Wear companion app:
Open Android Wear app on your phone
Go to Settings (gear icon in upper-right corner)
Tap on Cloud sync
Turn on
