Wearable devices recognize a limited set of gestures due to the small size of the device. The actions associated with a given gesture are typically pre-configured and non-editable, thus limiting the functions that the user can perform. This disclosure describes techniques that enable wearable device users to map gestures available via a wearable device to specific tasks, e.g., performed by a virtual assistant. Once configured, input of the gesture results in the associated command being passed to a virtual assistant, provided by the wearable device or a separate paired device, as if it were spoken by the user at the instant at which the user performed the gesture.
