Our friends at Google have just announced an exciting Android Wear update, which means some pretty neat new features are on the way soon for smartwatch 3.
So, we’ve taken a look at some of the features and what they mean for how you’ll experience your Sony smartwatch 3…
Smartwatch 3 set a standard for standalone Android Wear functionality, with native GPS and offline music playback – and the latest update takes that to the next level. “WiFi for Android Wear” will connect your phone to your watch via the cloud, so you won’t always need a tethered Bluetooth connection. As smartwatch 3 is Wi-Fi ready, whenever you’re connected to Wi-Fi, you can walk away from your phone safe in the knowledge you’ll still be able to send messages, use apps and see those all important likes and tweets.
Wearable tech should take dependencies away to make life easier, and this update goes further to do just that – Android Wear will now respond to gestures, so you can scroll through cards and apps on smartwatch 3 with a simple flick of the wrist.
That’s not all, the update will bring a whole host of other new Android Wear goodies – a few of our favourites include:
