GPS smart watches broke into view, similar to the original smart phone, and although it's not sophisticated enough, we can still predict it. The age of smart watch is about to begin. Today, let's talk about smart interactive watches.
In the next few years, the interactive design of smart watches will continue to evolve. On the goal side, you should dig deep into users' potential needs and try to develop killer apps to change the status of smart watches as add to smart phones; in terms of interaction, more natural ways of interacting should be achieved. And the direct interaction between human and intelligent device, which is the difficulty of the interaction design of smart watch. In the interaction flow, based on the user behavior habit and the inherent characteristics of the watch, the technology and function are combined to make the operation behavior natural and reasonable.
In a few short years, when the age of smart phones was at its peak, smart watches broke into view, similar to the original smart phone, and although it's not sophisticated enough, we can still predict it. The age of smart watch is about to begin. Today, let's talk about smart interactive watches.
Interact form smart watches
While the touch screen is the standard for smart watches at the moment, it's clearly not a good way to interact. After all, the experience of poking around such a small screen is conceivable. The other ways, which can be said to be an extension beyond touch, are complementary to the touch interaction of smart watch.
In the intelligent interactive watch scheme, stainless steel material, built-in GPS chip and advanced ring antenna in the industry are used to overcome the problem that the outdoor wrist watch can't use metal material in GPS because metal material interferes with GPS signal. And this technology is a good solution to this problem.
Smart watches with App
The watch also adds fitness tracking and smart messaging features that record the number of steps, mileage, calories, incoming phone calls, text messages, emails, Weibo, WeChat Facebook and other mobile apps that users walk every day. Outdoor sports, including running, cycling, swimming, climbing, skiing and so on, can be recorded by smart interactive watches. Especially in the cross-country aspect strong performance, can help the user to understand the direction, the altitude, the temperature, the coordinate in the field, records the current time, the speed, the track and so on information, lets you have the thorough understanding and the appropriate plan to the entire cross-country travel.
Touch: this kind of interaction, needless to say, is well understood, and in the early days of the smart watch, because it was created as a two-screen smart phone, the touch screen continued on the smart watch. The advantage of using touch screen for interactive operation is that it can get timely feedback and the interaction effect is also straight. However, because of the operation range is too small, the experience of single touch screen input on smart watch is not very good. Some other means of interaction are needed.
Digital crowns: the rotating crown zooms in a much better way than the previous experience of magnifying and shrinking directly with your fingers on the watch screen. However, digital crown has a higher learning cost than touch interaction.
Rotary dial: rota table dial greatly improves the ease of use of smart watch.
Gesture control: if the first several operations require the cooperation of both hands, then gesture control to some extent has the advantage of one-handed operation, in some cases where the hands are not very convenient, such as holding things in the hand, One-handed operation reflects its advantages. In general, gesture control technology is still not mature, but in the future there is still a lot of room for development of smart watches.
