Follow your workout from your Android Wear
We’ve been working on Android Wear support and are are happy to announce that we’re now ready to release it (version 3.7.15). We’ll start the rollout to our users gradually and are looking to release it to everyone soon.
You can start, pause and end your workout and follow your workout details on the watch. This means you’ll still need to carry your phone with you, but you don’t have to take the phone out of your pocket.
How it works
To start using the Sports Tracker app on your watch, you don’t need to do anything as long as you have the Android Wear and Sports Tracker apps installed on your phone.
It’s very simple to start a workout. You can do it directly on the watch (or with the phone if you wish) and also with voice commands. Google provides a few defaults (start running, start cycling and start a workout) which can’t be modified at the moment. Note that if you have multiple fitness apps installed, you need to configure which app is launched with the voice commands from the Android Wear app.
Starting/pausing/ending a workout is done on the first page of the tracking mode. You can then swipe between pages as in the phone app. Once you end the workout, you can see the summary in just one screen by scrolling down.
To follow your heart rate, we recommend using a heart rate monitor that uses Bluetooth Smart technology.
We appreciate your feedback
As we’re always looking for ways to improve our service, we’ll still be tweaking the experience and features.
So if you’re a happy Android Wear watch owner, start tracking and let us know what you think!
