Now we can have autonomous navigation on Google Maps directly from Smartwatches with operating system Wear OS


During its presentation Samsung galaxy watch5 last August, Google announced that we will soon be able to use navigation on the service Google Maps autonomously at smartwatches with operating system Wear OS without requiring pairing with the smartphone. This feature is now available as the company confirmed in a short update.

So, in case you have a smartwatch with Wear OS and LTE antenna, you can now access the navigation function turn-by-turn through the Google Maps service even when you have left your smartphone at home. You realize that this is a very useful feature if you want to go for a run or a hike without carrying unnecessary weights with you.

To activate turn-by-turn navigation on your smartwatch, just open the Google Maps app, enter your destination (either by typing or by voice command), choose the mode of movement (pedestrian, car, bicycle) and then starts normally as we know it from smartphones.
