- The constant demand for wearable apps. New features, and new capabilities, with the launch of every new device there is a demand for people's favourite apps and tools to be updated to fit the new devices and capabilities.
- Fragmentation. There are no standards for wearable devices, making it easy for wearable app development need to focus on a specific device, and need more work to operate on another model, even if they are similar to wearable, such as smartwatches.
- Tethered devices. To get around the restrictions of the user interface on many wearables, they are often used almost exclusively with tethered devices. However, with so many options, including thousands of different smartphones alone, allowing for tethered devices is a significant challenge.
- App Updates. Users expect apps to be regularly updated for new devices.
- Privacy and Data Security. With any connected device, maintaining privacy and security within apps is always a challenge, with the restrictions on wearable devices it can be doubly so.
- User interface. By necessity, every wearable device is compromised in some way in terms of how users interact with them, and that translates into the apps that must find ways to use those restricted controls to deliver an acceptable user experience.
- Battery life. For wearables to be practical they need to have battery life that lasts long enough to not be an inconvenience but leveraging all the power a wearable device has during wearable app development means that you will cause the battery to drain faster, it's a balance that wearable app developers must always try and find.
- Speed. Getting an app to run smoothly on restricted hardware is a constant challenge.
- People expect to use devices all day, but the more features added, the more energy is needed to power the device and the faster the batter is depleted. Finding the balance between battery capacity and practicality remains an ongoing challenge for wearable design.
- Lights on fitness trackers convey information to users. This is a great design choice to overcome the limitations of having no screen, or a screen that is too small to be useful in many situations, however, the lights themselves also present challenges. Can they be seen in daylight? Is the meaning of each light message clear for the user? Hours of development will go into the lights that we usually just take for granted.
- Keep interfaces uncluttered. A smaller interface makes it easy for the design to become cluttered and difficult to use, careful planning is needed to maintain visibility with any interface.
- Smartwatches must convey information that can be consumed at a glance. Whether screens, lights, or anything else, clarity for information is crucial.
- Timely information is what makes wearable UI valuable.
