Wearables Workshop: UX Essentials

Let's go zero to wireframe with wearables!

Wearables can be tough to understand and design for, especially if you don’t have experience with the hardware. In one evening we’ll get you up to speed on wearable technology. We’ll talk about two trends, context and continuity, and focus on how those trends will impact the user experience of screen-based wearables. Then we’ll spend the rest of our time getting hands-on by wire framing a smart watch app.

In this workshop we will:

  1. Explore the world of wearables, and hone in on smart watches.
  2. Explore the challenges that come along with screen-based wearables - specifically context and continuity.
  3. Get hands-on with smart watches - wireframing a smart watch app with feedback and discussion.

You’ll leave this workshop with the skill and knowledge you need to get started designing the UX for smart watches.
