With the new Apple Watch now available for pre-order, we thought it would be interesting to see what apps wearable users are likely to download and get the most use out of on their wrist.
Given there are already a number of Android compatible smartwatches available and in use, Mobidia decided to take a look at the usage of five popular Android wearable apps to see what functions people are utilizing on their wearable devices.
Android Wear users had the highest screen time, which wasn’t surprising given that this is one of the primary apps for controlling preferences and managing notifications and devices with an Android smartwatch. In a very close second was the Wear Fitness Personal Trainer app, which has seen a consistent increase in usage month over month since launching in October.
It seems camera and browser functionalities are less of a concern amongst the wearable community with Wear Internet Browser and Wear Camera Remote users only engaging with the app for a few minutes each month.
As the trend for wearable’s continues, we will no doubt see updated versions of peoples’ favorites repurposed for this new market, as well as a variety of new apps entering the game. This will certainly be an interesting space to watch in 2015 and we are excited to see which apps are most successful.
