Create a lasting impression with your designs

Communicate the identity and purpose of your app by designing visual elements using colors, icons, and typography. Test your app to see if you can read information easily and find a consistent brand identity. You should also make sure that your app uses consistent animation when transitioning between screens or performing functions. Design elements with strong visual impact, such as the launch screen or icons, to work well with the watch’s circular display.
