Smartwatches such as the Apple Watch and Samsung Watch have become a vital bridge between today’s fast-paced digital and physical world. According to a recent report done by the International Data Corporation, smartwatches grew 54.3% in 2018, signaling to developers that these devices aren’t going anywhere. Because of the smartwatch’s popularity, there is an opportunity to develop innovative solutions for apps on the Apple Watch. As a UX/UI concentration at Cal Poly, I have only designed interfaces for web and mobile devices, allowing me to have more space for additional functionality. I want to present myself with a new challenge by designing a smaller interface that only allows for limited features. I intend to apply the concepts and skills I have learned in the Graphic Communication program to develop efficient and usable solutions.
