Apple Watch Now Playing

Apple Watch Now Playing

Around the time watchOS 2 was in beta, I was thinking about how its system glances could look if 3rd party apps were allowed to customise their actions.

I used Spotify as an example on the Now Playing glance. I added functions for starting a song radio, save to your library and a saved indicator next to the song name. Using the primary colour helps to resemble the app better too.

While working on the customised glance, I also made a default version to help others who might be designing similar glances. The resource is available on Sketch app sources.
