Apple has put a lot of effort into creating beautiful and familiar watch faces. They've created a range of faces both digital and analouge but it felt like very little of the watchface was really being used for time.
Nearly 50% of the watch face presets provided by apple only use 7% of the screen to tell the time. Text can use more of that space.
Beyond the hardware itself there's so much innovation in timekeeping. One thing is crucial, the mechanism of the display is intrinsically linked to the information being displayed. While the sheer choice of faces shows how personal time keeping and wrist watches are.
Connections made, sketch scribbled.
I made two in total, the first on the overview tab the prototype makes use of Helvetica, however, the system font on Apple products is now "San Francisco" the prototype below (should at least on a mac / in Safari) be displaying a SF-Pro preview. The main indicators of the font are the slightly slanted ' and a rounded full stop. More info on the San Fransico font can be found on the apple developer website.
