Developers get Apple Watch peek

Today Apple released Apple Watch information for developers, so they can use WatchKit to build connections between their iOS apps and the Apple Watch in advance of its release next year.

A lot of this stuff is quite technical, but if you want to get an idea how the first iteration of the Apple Watch will work, it’s worth a read, especially the Human Interface Guidelines.

Also worth noting: This first go-round for developers won’t let them build fully native apps—that’s coming later next year. However, as (underscore) David Smith writes, the initial capabilities are more impressive than he had expected.
