Editor’s note: Apple Watch is expected to release in the coming months. But as you know, the company already released WatchKit, the SDK that allows developers to create apps for its upcoming Apple Watch, along with Xcode 6.2 beta. So you may have already played around with it and started building Watch apps. If not, this beginner tutorial is for you. This week Julian from Julo’s development will give you an introduction to WatchKit and show you how to build a simple guess game using the SDK. You’ll learn how to create a Watch app, layout the app UI and test the app.
Enter the WatchKit tutorial.
WatchKit was first released by Apple on November 18th, 2014, along with Xcode 6.2 beta. The SDK allows developers to create and develop apps for the Apple Watch. To develop applications for the Apple Watch, you’ll need to have a paid developer account to download Xcode 6.2 beta. The demo app will be written in Swift. So I expect you have some basic knowledge of Swift programming.
Okay, let’s get started.
