This is thanks to the folks at Phandroid who have managed to get their hands on some screenshots and details regarding the upcoming update that Android 5.0 will be making to Android Wear. For starters, Google has finally addressed the issue of screen brightness by introducing two new modes – Theater mode which will dim the screen’s brightness so that it doesn’t distract other moviegoers; and Sunlight mode that will crank the brightness to make it more legible under direct sunlight.
These options can be easily accessed by swiping down on your watch, thus providing you with a quick way to make the changes. Google has also made improvements to Android Wear for those with visual impairments. The new accessibility features will allow users to increase the size of the text, color inversion, as well as providing magnification gestures. No word on when the update will be making its way to Android Wear, but we’ll keep an eye out for it.
