Design Principles of Android Wear

  1. Timely

    Android Wear is designed around the core actions of suggest and demand. Wearables provide the right information at the right time, allowing users to be more connected to both the online and real worlds.

  2. Glanceable

    Keep interfaces uncluttered and easy to read. Organize information using a clear information hierarchy.

  3. Easy to tap

    Make sure your tap targets are well-spaced and easy to tap. Avoid relying on a large amount of user input to use the app.

  4. Time-saving

    Create efficient flows that help users complete tasks quickly. Avoid creating complex experiences that rely on multiple steps to get a task done.
