Abstract

Back in September of 2014, Apple announced their first new product line since the iPad in 2010. In an unusual move for Apple, they gave developers access to the Apple Watch SDK, and the public information on a device that wasn’t to ship for another seven months. The delay between announcement and release was important because although it was most likely production issues that caused the delay, the Apple Watch presents a new paradigm with different user interaction methods, and usage levels measured in seconds rather than minutes. Developers were able to start building apps for the Apple Watch with the SDK that Apple provided and quickly realized that the traditional ways of planning and building iOS apps wouldn’t directly translate to the Apple Watch, so the time would be required to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t.
