Wear OS 2.1: New swipe gestures, better watch UX [Video] - 9to5Google. I love the 23 K Gold Watch Urbane Luxe from LG. It is the perfect complement to my Galaxy Watch. Wear OS, however, has been clunky and unusable from the start, and I left my pretty watch in its box for the past year or so. Yesterday, however, I dusted it off, and left it in the charger at work for a day. When I looked at it in the afternoon, it had an upgrade prompt for the new Wear OS 2.1, and I installed it. What a difference. Now, just like my Android phone, if you swipe left, Google Assistant gives you your daily notifications, from travel time to the office, to the weather, to the sports scores you are interested in, the daily calendar, and so forth. Swipe up, and texts, notifications, and news briefs pop up and can be read in full with a tap. Swipe right, and fitness measurements are all available on one screen, from steps to other fitness measurements. Swipe down, and the Settings, and watch controls are all available. Unlike the Galaxy Watch, Google Assistant can be called with an "OK Google", and the entire world of information is now available on the watch via voice command. It will now be a matter of mood which Smartwatch accompanies me on my day. Or, Deion Sanders like, I might just wear one on each wrist. You can never be too rich, too thin, or wear too many wrist computers.
