Wear Aware acts like a leash between your phone and your Android Wear watch. It is awesome when you are walking away from your phone, or your phone is walking away from you! In addition it works like a short range “Find my Phone” app to help you locate your phone when it’s out of sight.
Android wear app
This was our first wear app. As always, we wanted to keep it simple, but we also wanted to make something special.
A watch is so tiny that the amount of touchable elements is limited to only one or a few per screen. That is already quite a limitation, but we made this work in our favor. We took the opportunity to make this visually stunning, large clear symbols, bold colors. And to top it off, delightful animations to make it enjoyable to use.
Wear aware has two main use cases, Alerting you to leaving your phone behind, and helping you locate your phone when it is nearby. (Quite useful if your phone slid in behind a sofa cushion, without you knowing it.
It consists of two parts, the watch app and the phone app.
The watch app
The phone app
Bare in mind that the phone app is basically not used except for setting the app up the first time. That’s the reason why settings are so prominent, in most app designs this is not the case.
