Abstract: This study examined smart watch message reading features by considering the following assessment points: simplicity, comprehensibility, perceived usefulness, and overall satisfaction. Three smart watches (Pebble Watch, Samsung Galaxy Gear2, and Sony Smartwatch2) were subjected to user tests, and indepth user interviews were conducted. The results showed that 83.3% of participants experienced difficulty in checking and reading messages. Screen size, text size, and accessing messages were the top three factors causing inconvenience. The participants believed that the most useful feature of the smart watch was message notification, and message reading was also considered useful. The message notification function could be further developed for smartwatch design.
