The Sunlight Mode brings a short boost of maximum brightness so you can see your smartwatch's face outside.

Google is going to be rolling out the latest update to the Android Wear devices this week and the smartwatch’s UI is going to get much better with the Easier Navigation which the update is going to bring. Apart from this there will be a set of new Modes which will also have a Sunlight Mode for amped-up brightness and other app improvements are going to include control from the smartwatch for notifications and additional per-app information in the Android Wear smartphone app.

Google is expected to release this system update alongside the Google Play update and a new category watch faces will be included. This week is bringing all sorts of updates to the Android devices with an over-the-air software release with three key points on tap. The highlight of the update is the Easier Navigation which has the ability to "quickly bring a card back if you've accidentally dismissed it." Apart from this, to make things easier, you are also going to see all the recently used actions at the top of your list when you tap the watch face.

The new modes which will come with this app will make it easier for the situational feature adjustments. Tapping into the Sunlight mode is going to bring a short boost of maximum brightness so you can see your smartwatch's face outside. In the theater mode, the screen will be turned off and when you’re in a dark room, the notifications will be turned off. You will also see a quick actions pull-down which you will view by swiping down from the top of the screen.
