Overview

Learning to handstand is becoming increasingly popular. One of the key progress metrics when doing this is the length of a hold. Without any hands free to set a stop watch, obtaining accurate timings can be a challenge. Our Handstands app for Apple Watch solves that problem.

Approach

Understand the device

Apple Watch was a new platform for us. It has fantastic potential, but using it as a platform for useful applications requires a good understanding of its capabilities and design protocols. Our first step was to learn about how to create an awesome Apple Watch app.

Technical Feasibility

We analysed a lot of data to understand how accurate we might be able to make our timer and to determine what data we could use to trigger the start/stop.

Define the requirements

The development requirements were produced and put into Jira. These included detailed user stories with acceptance criteria and pixel perfect screen mockups.

In development, coming soon.
