We spent a long time imagining what watchOS 10 would be like and the amount of information about the design changes and they have finally arrived: widgets coming to watchOS 10. This new way of displaying information and content is integrates into the home screen so the personalization of each user is now key. In fact, the widgets are called up directly from the Digital Crown, with a slight twist. They have also taken the opportunity to redesign native apps within watchOS as World Clock, in addition to the new spheres we expected.
Widgets coming to watchOS 10
As expected, widgets have arrived in watchOS 10. These interactive elements with dynamic information will now appear at the bottom of the face and can be accessed by sliding the digital crown. We have seen examples of app widgets such as stocks, reminders, weather, etc. It's a new way of access more information without having to access the applications themselves. Also, those widgets are dynamic and can appear or disappear. For example, timers become widgets when one is active.
have also been announced two new spheres. The first, Palette, a sphere with many colors and another called animated Snoopy in which the well-known character gives us the time in motion. As always, these spheres will be exclusive to watchOS 10 and will most likely have more or less configurations depending on the Apple Watch we have. Finally, they have introduced layout changes in some native apps like the World Clock app that we will have to analyze in detail when the keynote is over.
