Custom notification cards allow you to receive specialized notifications on your smartwatch Once you select a custom notification card, every time you receive a new notification, the selected notification card is automatically displayed on your watch face. This reduces the chances of skipping an important notification.

Once Android Wear is installed on your smartphone, you can pick any custom notification card from a couple of demo cards that are already available in the app. Here is how:

  1. Turn on your Android smartphone.
  2. To view the apps list, tap the Menu icon.

  3. Tap Android Wear from the available apps.

  4. When the Android Wear app appears, tap the More icon (icon with the three vertical dots) from the top-right corner.
  5. From the displayed list, tap Demo cards.

  6. After the list with different card types shows up in the Demo cards window, tap the desired one from which you wish to get notified on your smartwatch. (E.g. Reminder (by time) in this demonstration.)

  7. Once added, tap the target card that appears on your watch to see the respective notifications.


  • Note: If you want to remove a card from the smartwatch, open the card and swipe to the right to delete it.
