Smartwatch Use Case: UI Exploration


How can a smartwatch engage and enrich its wearer with knowledge, tips, and wayfinding in a real-time experience?

Here is an early UI exploration of a tourism use case for the Android smartwatch. Making use of the Android Wear design principles, the user can explore their surroundings through context-aware notifications and user-driven actions. These actions might include looking up navigation directions, selecting currency units, and accessing the phone's camera. Sources of data may pull from flight times detected by Google Now, language dictionaries, ratings of local destinations, geo-location, currency converters, and Google Calendar reminders.
