Samsung made a bold move and collaborated with Google for its smart wearables. With the release of the new Galaxy Watch 4, we can see that the watch runs on WearOS rather than the company’s own TizenOS. WearOS is highly customisable as it not only just sends you notifications but also keeps track of your health, organising your work and also keeps you connected with your entertainment devices and apps. With Google Play Store support there are tons of applications that are supported on the device. Here are some best applications that you should download instantly.
This application is useful especially if you are somewhere unfamiliar. It’s really difficult to constantly stick to your phone to check your current location. Google maps work flawlessly on WearOS. The application can give you turn by turn navigation and estimate the time of arrival if you want. Even if the screen is small there is no compromise in the information on display. Maps show you the current time and with the location name, you currently are at. The application comes really handy while jogging or exploring a new area on foot. Google maps can also be used while riding a bike, but we do not advise it as it can have safety concerns.
Shazam is a very popular application on the smartphone platform. The good news is that it supports WearOS as well. Ever loved a song playing somewhere and felt like knowing the details about it? Well, Shazam comes to the rescue. The application listens to the song and identifies it for you. After knowing the song you can directly play or share the song from the application itself. Now, you don’t need to miss out on any song just because you were not able to pull out your smartphone from your pocket fast enough.
Wear Gesture Launcher
TheWear Gesture Launcher is for you if you use a lot of applications on your smartwatch but are tired of pressing a button or navigating the application again and again. The Wear Gesture Launcher does what it says. Users can set up a gesture for specific applications, for example drawing S to launch Shazam. Just open the drawing pad by scrolling down from the top right corner and draw the gesture accordingly. The developer is constantly updating the application to enhance user experience and reduce the delay in opening applications.
Want to have a quick reminder or make a shopping list on the go? Google keep is the go-to solution. It is a note service by Google that can be very useful. Also, the best part being all the lists or reminders you saved in your wearable will automatically be synced across all the devices logged in via your email ID. Easy way to track your progress in a supermarket without constantly looking at your smartphone.
Facer Watch Faces
Companies usually provide users with only a handful of watch faces. There is a chance that you might not like the default watch face options offered by the company. That is the place where Facer shines. It has over a million watch faces to choose from by reputed artists and brands. Users can customise the watch faces and even add their own watch face if they wish to. The application is regularly updated with tons of new watch faces. If you are looking for a good application to enhance the way your smartwatch looks, Facer is perfect for it.
These are the list of applications that will come in handy to enhance your smart wearable experience and also help you to increase your productivity. These applications are absolutely free of cost with in-app purchases in some of them.
