The Apple Watch is a device set to redefine how users interact with apps and technology. As the first wearable technology device released by Apple is expected to have a wide adoption among iPhone users.
This presents as a great opportunity for brands and companies to extend their iOS apps by doing Apple Watch app development and be among the early adopters of this new technology while providing the users of their apps increased functionality and an enriched experience through the extension of their app to the Apple Watch.
Having your app available for the Apple Watch or as its unofficially called by some iWatch provides your users with a whole new dimension of engagement, accessibility, and functionalities and at the same time increases user loyalty and usage of your app.
We at Elegant Media have extensive experience developing apps for iOS and our team of developers is already working with the WatchKit SDK to deliver extended functionalities of iPhone apps in the Apple Watch and provide innovative experiences.
If you have a health related app then an app for the Apple Watch is a must have. By extending your app to the Apple Watch you would take advantage of the heartbeats sensor in the watch, and be able to provide your users with even more detailed information about their health status and right on their wrists!
Fitness / Sports apps:
When it comes to Fitness or Sports apps the Apple Watch really shines through. With it’s heartbeats sensor and accelerometer it can track activity, calories burned and provide your app with new layers of information to deliver more in depth reports after a workout session, or real-time information during a workout which users can access easily on their wrist and use on the go to make their exercise routine more efficient.
