GET FAMILIAR WITH NOW NO­TI­FI­CA­TION CARDS

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

Now Cards are no­ti­fi­ca­tion cards sim­i­lar to Google Now that pop up from the bot­tom of your screen. Th­ese in­clude text mes­sages, emails and missed phone calls, as well as traf­fic and weather up­dates. As of up­date 4.4.W.2 you can opt to have th­ese no­ti­fi­ca­tion cards re­main on your screen un­til swiped away (just swipe down to dis­miss them), or to only pop up for a few sec­onds be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing. Tog­gle be­tween the two set­tings by go­ing to the Set­tings menu and se­lect­ing the “Card Pre­view” op­tion. Opt­ing for “Watch face sets card pre­view” will al­low no­ti­fi­ca­tions to re­main on the dis­play, while se­lect­ing “None” will not. Whichever, you se­lect you can see your un­read no­ti­fi­ca­tions by swip­ing up from the bot­tom of the dis­play.

To scroll through your no­ti­fi­ca­tions, keep swip­ing up. If you want to see more info on a card, just tap it. Some cards will dis­play ex­tra op­tions when you tap them, for ex­am­ple, a Gmail card has op­tions that let you ar­chive, re­ply, or open Gmail on your phone. When you’re done with a card dis­miss it by swip­ing from left to right. Dis­miss­ing a card on your watch will dis­miss the same no­ti­fi­ca­tion on your phone and vice versa.

If you ac­ci­dently dis­miss a card and want to re­trieve it you can do so by im­me­di­ately swip­ing down from the top of your watch’s dis­play and press­ing the ‘Dis­miss­ing’ but­ton with the re­verse ar­row on it. You have about five sec­onds (there’s a lit­tle timer sur­round­ing the but­ton that shows you how much time you have left) be­fore the no­ti­fi­ca­tion is gone for­ever.
