Designing for the Apple Watch

Published on

As the Apple Watch is increasingly becoming part of our every day lives, the apps we design for it are playing a crucial role in our routines. Some are a hit, others a miss.

What constitutes a good app experience for a wearable like the Apple Watch, and how can we design for one? What are the best practices?

Through good and bad examples, and personal experience, this presentation is aiming to answer these questions towards a clearer understanding on how to design for this new product category.
