The point of having a smartwatch, at least in theory, is that you can get to important notifications and actions faster than you would if you had to whip out your smartphone first. However what happens it’s that you have to go through several screens and taking a great amount of time just to get to where you want. Android Wear’s latest update tries to end this by putting important or recent actions just a swipe or tap away from your current screen.
Just tap on your watch face and see the most recently used actions you’ve performed right at the top of the list. If you swipe down from the top of the screen you can access to the most used settings. And in if you dismissed a card by accident, you just have to swipe right and that card will be back. On the companion app side, you also get a more detailed look at your smartwatch’s battery and storage usage.
The updates was relesead today, so don’t get too worry if you don’t receive that notification rigth away.
