You will exercise conceptual thinking, visual invention, digital craftsmanship, and sensitivity to audience and human factors. We will start to work on smaller screen, this time focusing on a specific wearable (in this case WatchOS).
Smartwatch popularity continues to grow according to latest research from International Data Corporation (IDC). The category makes up a third of the wearables market right now in terms of shipment volume, but two-thirds in terms of spend due to their higher average prices.
You will design a cohesive interface to manage a theoretical Smart Home. A smart home allows homeowners (users) to control appliances, thermostats, lights, and other devices remotely using a smartphone or tablet through an internet connection. We will design an interface that manages the following:
- Lights (on/off, dimmer, timer)
- Television (on/off, volume)
- Garage door (open/close)
- Front Door (lock/unlock)
- Front door camera/doorbell
You can elect to include other functionality that proves to be an effective addition to the applications functionality.
