Apple Watch SDK, WatchKit, Will Be Released in November

Apple just announced that they will release WatchKit, an SDK that allows third-party developers to work within the Apple Watch platform, in November. Apple has been working with select partners to develop applications for the platform since well before the announcement of their newest product; with the release of WatchKit, thousands of other developers will be able to get in on the action.

WatchKit

It is easy to see that WatchKit has exciting mobile development potential. With Apple’s registered developer base of over 275,000, that potential will definitely be tested. What remains to be seen is how developers will manipulate their data to work within a form factor that is far smaller than any other major platform. Some information is bound to be difficult to translate and innovation will be required.

For all you Apple developers, what will you build with WatchKit?
