ChatGPT is the talk of the town these days, and while Bing has implemented the best AI-powered technology to date, you can’t have Bing Chat everywhere just yet. If you’re tired of the Google Assistant or Alexa’s laconic responses and want something more than the assistant strapped to your wrist, ChatGPT might just be the thing for you.
For this tutorial, you will need a Wear OS smartwatch. Almost all of the best Android watches (Opens in a new tab) Powered by Google Wear OS including Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, Watch 5, TicWatch, and Google Pixel Watch (Opens in a new tab), And many other things. WearGPT works on both Wear OS 2 and Wear OS 3 watches.
Keep in mind this is running on ChatGPT-4 which, as of this writing, is still running on a knowledge base discontinuing in September 2021. In other words, feel free to ask interesting questions on ChatGPT about historical facts, math questions or some other facts that existed prior to September 2021. At this time, Bing Chat only uses ChatGPT and provides up-to-date information for questions such as “What’s the weather like?” or “What’s going on in my town this weekend?”
How to put ChatGPT on Galaxy Watch, Pixel Watch, and Wear OS
WearGPT is a free app on the Google Play Store that makes it easy for you to run ChatGPT queries from your Wear OS smartwatch. Here’s how to install it on your watch:
- Go to WearGPT app on the Google Play Store (Opens in a new tab).
- If you’re doing it from the web or from your phone, tap Install on more devices And select your watch from the list.
- If you are using the Play Store on your watch, just tap install.
- Once it’s installed, open the app drawer on your watch and tap WearGPT.
How to use WearGPT
WearGPT’s interface is a bit information dense, but easy enough to use. From your watch, it’s probably easier to ask a question on ChatGPT using your voice. To do this, simply tap the microphone icon on the WearGPT home screen. The standard Google or Samsung voice prompt screen will appear and you can ask the question, then tap the submit button when done.
If you’d rather type in the question or edit your previous query, you’ll need to click on the text box to the left of the microphone button. This will open the text editor and allow you to change your question (or type one manually), then press submit to ask a ChatGPT question.
Once you submit a question, ChatGPT will consider the answer for a moment and then give you the answer in the largest text box on the screen. This is the part that takes up the bottom half of the app. At this time, you will need to use your finger to scroll down through the answer if it is too long. Scrolling is not done with the crown or rotating bezel on the watch for some reason. We hope this will be fixed in a future update.
