Apple Watch app rules – users must only look at the screen for a maximum of 10 seconds
Now, there has been a lot of speculation about the battery life of the upcoming wearable, and many believe that it will not be enough to last a full day with comfortable usage. So, this report may throw some oil in that fire, but on the other hand – the guideline may be catered to user experience as well. See, people usually don't want to spend a lot of time operating their wearable, so the time-limiting instruction may be carved out so that developers keep their apps short, sweet, and to the point – giving the user as much information at a glance as they can.
Well, whatever the case, the Apple event, at which the Watch will reportedly be launched, is only a few days away, so answers will be coming soon.
