LONDON, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
eHarmony.co.uk today announced the latest addition to its mobile family, offering its mobile app with smartwatch support for Android Wear and Samsung Gear S devices.
With more than 50 per cent of new users coming to eHarmony.co.uk through mobile devices, this release is the latest example of the company's mobile-first product development process.
Both the Samsung Gear S and Android Wear smartwatches will display enhanced notifications that are synced with the user's phone. When a match sends a communication, the member receives a push notification to their phone and an enhanced notification to their smartwatch.
The enhanced notification includes the match's name, age, and location, as well as their primary photo and personal message sent through eH Mail. Users are also informed when they receive questions sent using the company's Guided Communication options. The member can then simply open the eHarmony app on the connected Android device, and load their match's profile.
"Mobile represents a huge opportunity for us to capture a new market share, broaden our impact and continue creating better matches," said Romain Bertrand, Managing Director for eHarmony.co.uk. "We want to provide our users access to eHarmony.co.uk anywhere they are, from any device they choose. To that end, we have employed a product development process that adds new functionality and options to our mobile platform first. This is another way that eHarmony.co.uk is anticipating its members' needs."
The primary photo, match's age and location are features only available through new enhanced notifications on Samsung Gear S and Android Wear smartwatches.
