Here are some early concept designs for an Apple Watch fitness app. My chums at Sensoria asked me to photoshop some concepts to show how the Apple Watch could work with the Sensoria fitness wearable device. The Sensoria smart socks have sensors woven into the fabric which can detect strike points on your feet as you run to help you improve your running technique. Sensoria are one of the leading developers of truly wearable technology and the “internet of things”.
Designing an app for the Apple Watch
Designing for the small screen and “quick glance” use case of the Apple Watch is a largely reductive process, editing the parent app down to the most essential features, then refining the graphics so they are legible on the small screen and the context of a quick glance.
Of course, all this is academic for me right now… I need an Apple Watch! Which means I also need a new iPhone 6. I’m not someone who likes to upgrade for the sake of getting the latest thing. I’m convinced Apple have been sending “slow-down-self-desctruct” messages to my trusty iPhone 4s – it use to be lightning fast 😉
I’m trying not to listen to that inner voice that says:
You are a Freelance Apple Watch App Designer… you need this for your freelance designer business
I’m very excited to be working with Heapsylon on an iPhone app for their amazing Sensoria, a super accurate fitness tracker that connects your iPhone to a smart sock and sensor that tells you how well you run. Wearable technology and smart fabrics are a fascinating new form factor, and as a runner I’m very keen to get hold of a prototype as soon as I can. Click here to pre-order yours.
As well as designing the UX and UI for the Sensoria Fitness app, I also designed their web experience from user on-boarding and fitness dashboard to Sensoria’s promotion site and e-commerce store.

My foot heat-map designs which I created for my friends at Sensoria Fitness are now being beamed onto Google Glass specs!!! It connects to Sensoria’s amazing smart socks and app.
Tis the future.

I used a bit of motion blur (it’s a running app, it’s forgivable!), I also increased saturation to make the green of the foliage match the logo.
Then I masked out a copy of the original shoe image on another layer to have it un-blurred. The image is now more dynamic and blurring of the background helps shifts focus to the product.
Finally adding the copy, iPhone image and logo.
