eHarmony Rolls Android Wear App
Santa Monica-based online matchmaking service eHarmony is jumping into the smart watch market, saying today that it has launched its mobile app for Android Wear and Samsung Gear S. According to eHarmony, the move is a part of the shift by the company to a "mobile-first" product development process. eHarmony said the app will display notifications that are sync'd with a user's phone, allowing users to see a match's name, age, location, photos, and messages. eHarmony already offers up Android and iPhone apps; however, the company has yet to announce a similar app for the new Apple Watch. eHarmony has been in the midst of a major overhaul of its infrastructure to adjust to the new, young, mobile driven market--which is more comfortable with apps like Tinder than eHarmony's online roots.
