I like it! On my LG G Watch R the calculator is perfectly usable. A few ideas:
  • I'd like sqrt and x^2 and would be perfectly happy to sacrifice abs and ran to achieve this.
  • I'd really like an EEX button. On a small keyboard, anything that saves on key presses is valuable. How about using the display as an extra key to achieve this?
  • Ability to work in degrees would be nice (sacrifice "e" for this?). Once again, it would save on key presses.
  • When pressing f and g it might be nice to change the key labels to show the shifted functions. This would improve readability at the cost of changing the "feel" of the machine.
Particular congratulations on how good the calculator looks. The LCD display is especially nice!
