What wearables got your attention?

Any Google Wear OS fiends?
Any of these fiends willing to be guinea pigs to use watch faces I'm creating?

Apple supports complications, not custom faces; however, when they decide to get onboard, my code can port over easily.

Nah, I don't use em.

I have an apple watch and I loves it, though I do wish the complications were better - the functionality is actually pretty basic. My favourite thing about it is that I actually use my phone much less because I don't have to open it up and get distracted checking apps pointlessly every time it buzzes.

That makes sense. Are you able to make calls pairing a Bluetooth? With android, the last time I looked at it, you couldn't. And the functionality of it was limited. I don't know much about the Apple line tho.

Yea you can make calls directly from the watch, there's a little speaker and microphone but it's kind of stupid, I never use it for that. I decline calls on it all the time, though!

? Android had this ability from day one.
Go to your Bluetooth settings on your phone, select your wearable, enable Use For Call Audio.

I got rid of my wearable a while ago. I used it the first week I got it. Then sold it.

I don't use smartwatches. I never got into the wave. I like my good, old fashioned watch that tells the time.

Got a watch from my girl one Christmas. She knew I'd immediately get to coding for it. KPWW, for all you Broad City fans... I never leave without it.

Time is cool but I need more!

I get it. But, my phone screen is big enough to do what I want on it.
