Music at your fingertips : Introducing the Wear OS 3 companion app

Your on-the-go audio companion. Whether you're hitting the gym, running errands, or simply enjoying the outdoors, the iHeart Wear OS 3 app keeps the music flowing, always within your reach.

Music is freedom. It sets the rhythm for our workouts, fuels our adventures, and soothes our souls. But carrying your phone everywhere can be limiting, especially when you're on the move.

As Lead Designer, I spearheaded the iHeart Wear OS 3 app project, guiding the design team through concept exploration, user research, prototyping, and iterative refinement. I took ownership of the user experience, crafting intuitive interactions and ensuring a smooth transition between smartwatch and smartphone app.
I collaborated closely with engineers and product managers to bring my vision to life, ensuring a technically sound and user-friendly product.
