In a world filled with conceptual innovations that never see the light of day, there is one standout from CES 2024 that you can actually experience for yourself. Behold WowMouse, an extraordinary application that has revolutionized the capabilities of your WearOS smartwatch by transforming it into a state-of-the-art Bluetooth mouse.
The latest update of the WowMouse app is now available for download, bringing a host of exciting features and improvements. With WowMouse, you can harness the power of your smartwatch’s existing sensors to effortlessly navigate your cursor without the need for a physical surface. Simply move your hand in open space to intuitively control your mouse. And to click, drag, or scroll, a gentle press on your smartwatch will do the trick, giving you complete control over your external device.
While it may initially appear as just a cool trick, WowMouse has proven to be a remarkably dependable and functional tool during live demonstrations. Snazzy Labs even put together a video showcasing its impressive capabilities.
The genius behind WowMouse comes from the minds at Doublepoint, a company committed to enabling your WearOS watch to function as a mouse with any Bluetooth-enabled device. It is worth noting that not all WearOS smartwatches are currently compatible with WowMouse. However, Doublepoint is actively working on expanding compatibility, so stay tuned for further updates. As of now, the application is optimized for Samsung’s WearOS smartwatches, particularly the Galaxy Watch 6, as well as the preceding Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 generations.
When observing WowMouse’s gesture-based controls, you’ll notice similarities to Apple’s Double Tap feature, which is present in the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 smartwatches. However, the Double Tap functionality is limited to controlling the smartwatch itself and does not extend to external devices. WowMouse, on the other hand, offers a far more versatile solution. According to various reports, WowMouse has displayed greater accuracy and reliability in gesture recognition than its Apple counterpart.
