Wearable technologies are the latest to impact mobile consumer space. Smartwatches, fitness trackers, and other wearable devices are now as essential as smartphones and tablets.

What is Wearables App Development?

Wearables app development helps you build an application that connects you to your users through wearable devices. In the development of wearables apps, you need to define the purpose of the app. Some wearable apps intend to offer personal care and healthcare services, while some are designed for general purpose. After determining the purpose of your wearable app, developers create intuitive yet compact user interfaces for the application. The compatibility of your wearable applications with Android and iOS platforms is maintained. Wearable apps are easy to use, intuitive, and data-secured.

Does Your Business Need a Wearables App?

Almost every business can find its application on wearable devices. These devices run smart technologies, collect user information, and offer complete mobility and ease of use. By partnering with a wearable app developer, your business can launch an app that captures a vast segment of consumers. In 2019, more than 700 million wearable devices were sold across the globe. When your business gets to leverage the power of these wearable technologies, it drives your brand awareness and boosts your business multifold.

Smart band apps and smartwatch apps are the two most effective wearables app categories for businesses, especially if you belong to the healthcare, travel, lifestyle, retail, or manufacturing industry. With the proper expertise, developing an excellent wearables app can provide a cost-effective solution to drive your sales organically and add a new stream of revenue to your business.

Wearable app devices are limited in functions, which makes their updates and management relatively easy. At the same time, these devices are the most reliable sources to collect and store user information. From health stats to spending behaviours, you get access to every critical information of your targeted audience. An enterprise-level wearable application can improve your status among competitors. The development of user-centric wearable apps is the key to create highly immersive environments and engaging mobile applications.

The Wearables App Development Journey

Wearables App Design

Your wearables app needs an efficient design that provides better glanceability to the users. Wearables have small screens and these devices can only display limited content. We design your wearables app with lightweight interactions and simple layouts. Keeping their UI design simple is important as these apps require a clear and minimalistic outline. We also minimize interruptions and secure the privacy of users while designing these apps.

Cross-Platform Development

Android and iOS are the two platforms where your wearables app would run. For Android wearables, our app development process helps you cater to a big user base. We craft your Android wearable applications exceptionally, making them more purposeful than mobile applications. For iOS wearable app development, we design a tailor-made app that offers a captivating next-level user experience. For maximum market reach, we can help you build your wearables app for Android as well as iOS.


API Development

The application programming interface is the crux of wearable app technology. By integrating APIs, your wearable app can communicate with mobile devices and online resources over the internet. We use open-source APIs to build connections between device hardware and wearable systems. As software intermediaries, our wearable APIs are developed for instant processing and lightweight operations.

UX Development

We develop a unique user experience for our wearable apps. You can experience the power of a fully-functional micro-interaction that is designed efficiently to carry out its tasks. These wearable app micro-interactions help you deliver a personal branding experience and enable the users in unlocking new doors to one-touch access and effortless digitization.

App Testing

After developing a high-quality prototype, we run your wearable app on a large user community. It gets tested with techniques such as A/B testing and changes are added to the app code. We implement these changes directly and fuse them with the core programming of the wearables app. The server-side testing of these apps is also taken care of.
