When managing connected lighting systems in the home, we can choose to do so through voice commands (with compatible assistants) or through the corresponding mobile application. And in the case of Philips Hue lamps, also across the clock.

This is possible thanks to the application created by an independent developer. An application that can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store called Wear Hue and which allows you to control Philips Hue connected lights from a smartwatch with WearOS.

Philips Hue lights can be controlled via Bluetooth connectivity or Wi-Fi via a bridge. Depending on the model chosen, the Philips Hue or Philips Hue app allows you to control the lights from your mobile. In addition to the mobile application, accessories such as buttons, switches… or the respective voice assistants.

To these options we must add a new application available for WearOS. The application is called Wear Hue and is available for free on the Google Play Store. An application that is not official and that allows you to control certain functions from the watch.

With Wear Hue, you can manage your Hue lights directly from your WearOS smartwatch. All you need is a hub or bridge, a Wi-Fi connection from the bulbs and the clock is connected to the same network as the Philips Hue bridge. With this app you can:

Connect the Philips Hue bridge See the status of all your devices Toggle device status Set colors and light tones, brighter, brighter…

The only limitation, as we have seen previously, is that the clock must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Hue Bridge, so it can only be used if we are at home, compared to the possibilities offered through the mobile app. .which allows the use even if we are far from home.
