  • The reason given by Google for the shut down is that “only a small number of people” used the watch apps to control their Nest. - 9to5google.com
  • "Moving forward our team will spend more time focusing on delivering high quality experiences through mobile apps and voice interactions." said Google - 9to5google.com

I wonder if this is indicative of a greater trend of people not really wanting to use apps on their smartwatches. Personally, I never really saw the appeal and prefer the battery life of my Casio.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I would want to try setting the temperature of my house via a Google Home. It's not that hard to just walk over to the thermostat and adjust it.
