Something to look forward to
Android 7.0 Nougat review
Uber announced its app would be available for Android Wear back in 2015. Almost 2 years have passed since the announcement but with the unveiling of the first devices with Android Wear 2.0 the platform is finally ready to work on your wrist.
If you are lucky enough to already have Android Wear 2.0 smart wearable, you can download the app from the Play Store. The most fascinating thing is that Uber is standalone on your watch. This means you can book a ride, check drivers progress, choose bookmarked destinations, compare prices and ETA and even see your own progress to the destination in real time.
Ubers biggest competitor Lyft doesnt have an AW 2.0 app and some time ago pulled out its Android Wear one from the Play Store. So if youre up for a drive in someone else's car and you want to book it from your smartwatch – Uber is your only choice.
- Strava is now a standalone app on Android Wear 2.0
- Android Wear 2.0 is headed to these smartwatches in the coming weeks
- Google Maps update lets you book an Uber ride without switching apps
- Uber's calendar shortcuts let you choose the location of your next meeting as the destination
