With Calendar for Android Wear, your schedule is never more than a tap away

Being in control of your schedule and keeping track of the many events that fill our lives can feel like a juggling act. Smartphones have made it easier, by giving us easy access to our calendars while we're on the go. Calendar for Android Wear (opens in new tab) takes the ease of seeing your upcoming appointments a step further, by letting you see your full schedule from your Smartwatch. A simple calendar that lets you view your appointments, and syncs to the calendar on your Smartphone. If you don't always have the time to check your phone, then this Calendar for Android Wear might be right up your alley.

To open up Calendar for Android Wear, just say 'Ok Google, open calendar' or grab it manually. It should automatically sync with your current calendar app. There aren't any real options for customization, or settings, but that's because the app concentrates on doing everything right. It's a basic calendar view, with the month and year at the top of your screen.

The current date is denoted by a red box around the date. You'll also notice that while some numbers are black, there are red ones as well. The red dates are the days on which you have appointments in your calendar. If you want to check on your calendar for months other than the current one, a quick swipe to the left or right will let you go forward or back in time.

If it's a day where nothing is scheduled, then all you'll get is a little gray box informing you there are no events scheduled on that date. If you tap on a date, then you'll get a list of all the appointments you have scheduled. Tapping on a specific appointment will open up another screen with all the information you put into your phone.

This means whatever you labeled the event as, time, date, location and details are all available right there on your wrist. It's a simple but capable design that lets you see everything you need to, without digging for your phone at an inconvenient moment.

It's available on the Google Play Store now, and it's 100% free.

If all you need is an organized glance at your calendar, this is one of the simpler options out there. Will you be checking out this Calendar, or do you prefer a different one?

  • Kind of annoyed by how bad so many apps look on round screens. Google knows why kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch. And they're willing to sell it to you.
  • I just happened to download this today before I saw this article and I really like it on my Moto 360. I like being able to see a month at a time and to me or looks fine on the Moto 360. It is simple and works well. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hmm....this app is getting some bad reviews in the Google Play Store. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yes there are some negative comments but an overall rating of 4.0 is pretty good. Also if you read the reviews some have already been addressed through updates. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I prefer using the standard Google calendar and then using a watch face like pujie black that can tap into it. Just tap the middle of the watchface and your daily agenda animates. If I need to see the full month view I just pull out my phone. You also get notifications for all of your events from android wear. To each their own though.
  • That sounds pretty cool. I wish I could afford an android wear watch ( ; - ; ) Posted via the Android Central App
  • You can find the Moto 360 at a little over $100 on Swappa. Google knows why kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch. And they're willing to sell it to you.
  • And if you want new (with manuf. warranty), it can be found many places (I got mine at Amazon) for $150.
  • Have this app and like it, but wish it would work even when not paired with my phone. I pretty much only use my SW3 when not paired (working out, running), would be nice to be able to take a quick glance at my calendar occasionally. This is likely a Wear issue, not an issue with this app though?
