Physical interactions with augmented reality glasses such as tapping, swiping, pressing buttons, etc. can sometimes lead to false positives or unintended input due to the difficulty of precisely controlling the hand while touching the device. This disclosure describes techniques that use a secondary wearable device, e.g., a wrist-worn device such as a smartwatch or fitness tracker, to detect when a user is reaching for a head-worn device such as augmented reality glasses. Upon such detection, the inertial movement sensitivity of the head-worn device is lowered or disabled to mitigate unintended selection changes while the tap gesture is being performed. When the hand is detected to be lowered (upon completion of the tap gesture), the sensitivity is returned to normal.
