Top 10 Tips for Building an Apple Watch App

Paraphrasing from Michael Ridland’s blog post:

  1. Re-think your iPhone design from the ground up
  2. If it takes more than five to ten seconds they should use their phone instead
  3. Bluetooth is slow
  4. Show only the exact data the user needs for the task at hand
  5. The watch is slow; your app should be fast
  6. Use Handoff when necessary (see #2)
  7. Let your iPhone do the work
  8. Use dictation when necessary (see #2)
  9. You only have ten user interface elements–that is and isn’t a limitation
  10. Get an Apple Watch and use it
