Smart Design for Auction Applications on Smart Watches : Achieving usability on smart watch applications (English)
Abstract [en]

This study concerns design thinking and how to achieve usability when designing applicationsfor smart watches. The study's focus is on interaction and design for online auctionapplications such as Ebay and Tradera. After studying usability and design for devices withsmall screens, guidelines and design principles for interactive systems, we developed apaperprototype for an auction application. The prototype was used for testing our intervieweeswhile observing and asking questions. After collecting the data we analyzed the responses andfeedback on our prototype and combined the results to previous studies. Based on the analysisand discussion of the results from the interviews and observation of our prototype, we came toa conclusion in design thinking for applications to smart watches. Usability is achieved byselecting the key features and allowing the interaction to be short and the graphical design tobe simple by designing according to glanceability so the user can interpret notifications in aglance and understand what to do in just a few swipes.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie berör hur man ska tänka när man designar applikationer för smartklockor så de uppnår användbarhet. Studiens fokus ligger på interaktion och design för onlineauktioner såsom Ebay och Tradera. Efter att ha studerat användbarhet och design för enheter med småskärmar samt riktlinjer och designprinciper för interaktiva system tog vi fram en prototyp i papper. Prototypen lät vi testa under observation i samband med intervjuer på testpersoner. Efter att vi sammanställt all data har vi analyserat svaren utifrån vår prototyp samt återkopplat resultatet till tidigare studier. Utifrån analys och diskussion kring resultatet från intervju och observation av vår prototyp kommer vi till en slutsats i designtänk för applikationer till smartklockor. Användbarhet uppnås genom att välja nyckelfunktioner och låta interaktionen vara kort men enkel samt designa enligt glanceability vilket innebär att användaren genom ett ögonkast kan se, tolka och uppfatta vad som ska göras, för att sedan utföra det i ett svep.
