Gestures on watches
To enable slide changes, we are using the gestures built into the Android Wear framework. The reason is that we do not want you to learn any other movements than the ones you already know.
To be honest, the first time when we used these built-in gestures was during the development, and it took significant time to learn them for us. Also, learning them is not enough if you want to make sure that the presentation goes smoothly, as if these gestures are not 100% yours, they can look weird to your audience.
- Practice gestures before going in front of an audience.
- If you are not sure, use the swipes, they are easy to do and look cool 🙂
