Wearable Notifications

Congrats to Joshua Wiley, the winner of the Ticwatch E!

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winners, folks. Blame Christmas.

Thanks a ton to everyone who entered and to our friends at Wearable Notifications for sponsoring this giveaway!

The holiday season is in full swing, and we’ve been giving away some pretty cool prizes lately to say thank you to our readers. Next up on the list is a chance to win a free Ticwatch E Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch from our friends at Wearable Notifications.

Before we get to the giveaway details, let’s take a moment to give a nod to our sponsor for this one, the Wearable Notifications development team. Shout outs to them for their generosity here, and for keeping a relatively slumping platform alive with fresh content.

What is Wearable Notifications?

Wearable Notifications is a simple app that provides data to watch face apps designed for Android Wear 2.0. It takes the notifications from apps you designate and displays them within your watch face’s “complications“. The app does so in several ways that differentiate from the way Google manages notifications.

Google’s notification management

  • Can only track notifications that get sent to your watch
  • Only displays a generic “Bell” icon
  • Only counts based on Apps, not Notifications – so if you have 5 Hangouts notifications and none from any other app, it’ll display “1″
  • Always present even when it’s at “0”

Wearable Notifications

  • Tracks Notifications that come on your phone
  • Displays the real icon from the app that produced the notification
  • Counts based on notifications for the app – so if you have 5 Hangouts Notifications it’ll display “5″
  • Hides when there are no notifications to display

How much does the Wearable Notifications app cost?

The app itself is free, with limited functionality. Unlocking the full version via in-app purchase will set you back a whopping $0.99. Surely a nominal fee if you’re an Android Wear 2.0 user looking for better control of your notifications.

Go fill out a survey or two, get some free Google Play Store monies, and it won’t cost you a dime.

Wearable Notifications is currently in beta. You can grab the app from Google Play with the widget below and join the Google+ community for more information.

  1. I don’t have android wear, and this would be my first time having one so I can’t say what my favorite app would be!
