Google Wear OS watch faces and applications development

Oleksandr Stepanov
Technical & Delivery Lead at AKQA, Ukraine

Google Wear OS, formerly Android Wear, is the platform for wearable devices, watches primarily. In this talk, I would like to present what kind of applications may be developed for this platform, how it differs from regular Android development, what are the limitations, pitfalls and caveats.

In the deck I plan to cover the next topics:

  • Kinds of applications available
  • API available on the watch itself
  • API for communication with a connected phone
  • Watch face development specifics
