Summary


In this chapter, we have understood the importance of dark themes on Wear devices. We changed the custom TextView with font assets. We have seen how to write custom layouts and defined a few animations in it. In later projects, we will explore more of the design guidelines and components introduced exclusively in Wear 2.0 Wearable action drawer and wearable navigation drawer.
