Abstract : Smartwatches are a fast-expanding type of interactive device that al- low users to directly access to many applications on smartphone. At the mo- ment, smartwatches lack a usable means of text entry. In this paper, we propose a new approach of text entry on smartwatches called UniWatch. At first, we give a state of the art concerning text entry on small devices. Then, we recall our past approaches of text entry and more particularly Uniglyph, a text input method for handheld devices that used a 4-button keyboard. Secondly, we de- scribe and compare the different adaptations of Uniglyph for tiny connected de- vices such as smartwatches. All the proposed adaptations require only three but- tons or three simple finger strokes on the screen. Thirdly, we examine the role of word completion and word prediction for such devices.
