Following the conclusion of the Fitbit acquisition last week, Google now owns two smartwatch platforms. While the timing may be purely coincidental, the Wear OS app in a survey today asked users about their satisfaction with the OS they wear.
Earlier today, the Android companion customer featured a major “Help us improve the OS Google wears?” Notification. One tap opened the app and a sheet surfaced asking: “Overall, how satisfied are you with your smartwatch?” Five options were presented when Google invited users to participate in a study. If yes, you were taken to Google Forms.
Unfortunately, those who enabled the dark subject on their phone were unable to fill out the questionnaire easily because the black background was displayed against a gray background. This is quickly corrected by turning off Night Mode, but some were not able to do so before disappearing.
For those who did not receive the Ware OS survey or were unable to access it, we have repeated this below:
As a company, Google heavily leverages user feedback and other metrics to shape its products. Time is most coincident with last week’s Fightbit acquisition. Last February, the Google User Experience Research Program sent a survey asking that users be interested in health facilities, making it possible to prioritize development.
Elsewhere, Google and Watchman are currently releasing the H-MR2 update, focusing on “more intuitive controls” and speed improvements. A new weather tile and fitness tracking update were also launched in November.
