Think about the experience of your last plane trip: from booking, to check-in and take off, it’s a continuous filling in of forms, searching for information, standing in line and showing papers. Airlines know that improving the entire travel experience is the key to getting ahead of their rivals, attracting customers and displaying their overall brand value.
Smartphones have helped to drastically improve the travel experience, and are now widely used for everything from booking to check-in and lots more. Smartwatches promise to make it even better – because they’re right on our wrist, they’re much more accessible and easy to use for travel, and so they have tremendous potential to make flying fun and easy.
Airlines know this, which is why many now have their own smartwatch app. But have they taken off? Have travelers flocked to them, and have the airlines reaped the business rewards they were expecting?
Not really. That’s because up to now, smartwatch apps have largely been developed through the lens of traditional mobile devices like smartphone or tablet computer. Wearables are a whole new ball game.
Instead of empowering a service by leveraging its smartwatch-specific business potential, often smartwatch apps are created as a scaled-down version of a smartphone app and therefore become limited and trapped.
At the heart of the smartwatch is the human connection between services and users, and that changes everything. It’s a totally new perspective that needs to be understood. Context is the new design framework, smart features anticipate customer needs and interaction moves from easy to instinctive.
So, what can you do to bring your smartwatch app the to next level? Here are the essential five steps that make it happen:
