- Smartwatches are quickly becoming a popular complement to smartphones for notifications and activity tracking, yet most lack an effective method of text input. Typing on a smartwatch with an onscreen keyboard was originally thought to be impractical due to the small screen size. Participants, in this study, typed using two different text input methods while standing and while walking. Read the article to learn which input method resulted in the fastest typing speeds, accuracy, and was preferred by the participants. Recommendations to include a full QWERTY keyboard on all smartwatch designs are discussed.
