Unread SMS, Mail, Call Counters on Android Wear 2.0

An important missing feature in Android Wear 2.0.

Android Wear 2.0 is a significant upgrade in terms of usability, but there is one thing I couldn’t seem to find.

Although the watch shows notifications as they come in, there are no watchfaces showing overall things like missed calls, unread text messages and unread mail. For example, if you had 3 missed calls, 10 text messages and 50 emails, wouldn’t it be nice to just have a number to show each, even linking to a program that would show them all rather than swipe, swipe some more, more swiping.

While checking the large watchface editors such as Facer, Pujie Black and WatchFace Premium, I just couldn’t seem to find faces with this functionality built in.

Then I found Ultimate Watch 2.0, which has a vast array of functionality, such as showing the heart rate as a “complication” (a dial with an icon and a value).

It’s currently 79p on the Google Play Store and is a definite recommendation, as it is a full functional editor with a bunch of options. Check it out!
