The truth is that this is an interesting option within those included in Android Wear 5.1, since it increases the level of security against unwanted access (which is not exactly a minor issue on a device that shows notifications of a large number of Applications). Then we leave the video in which you can see how to configure the lock screen protection on an LG Watch Urbane:
The truth is that everything is very simple, and the method used is a Pattern – of a minimum of four points – on the touch screen, which makes sense since a PIN would be much more complicated to use. Obviously, the entire process is done in the smartwatch Settings, and the simplicity of activation is very great. By the way, a very good detail is that viewing specific information as a watch can be viewed at any time, something that is essential and a success.
Striking options for this functionality
One of those that stands out is that when the clock detects that it is not on the wrist of the user, automatically activates the pattern for any process that you want to perform with it. In this way, it protects in a much more efficient way that someone wants to access the information of the notifications or of the applications from which the data can be seen on the smart watch itself. This, we remember, as long as the version of the Android Wear 5.1 operating system is used (yes, in some moments errors have been detected in this option, but the tests have been done with a version that is not the end of development).
The fact is that everything indicates that with the new Android Wear 5.1 development, which will first reach the LG Watch Urbane, there will be little surprises that can be as useful as the one indicated that protects the smartwatch screen by using a gesture pattern. Does this one that can be seen in the video seem interesting to you?
