Really good post discussing various details about how certain features of the Watch work by Gurman. Force Touch is one of my big question marks about the product, so I’m happy to see that ‘sources’ say it works well functionally. I still think it will take a while for users to grasp the concept of a tapping gesture that doesn’t directly relate to an onscreen UI element. I also foresee some people with particularly forceful taps to need some to readjust their handling.
The breadth and depth of the software features on offer with Watch OS really don’t feel like a 1.0 release. This feels like mature software — Apple is covering a lot of bases with the initial firmware.
