We’re very excited to announce official support for Apple’s just-released Watch Kit.

To start building Watch apps with Xamarin immediately:

  • Download the official Xcode 6.2 release from Apple.
  • Update Xamarin.iOS to the latest version.
  • Update Xamarin Studio or the Xamarin for Visual Studio extension.
  • File > New Watch App!

Xamarin provides complete Apple Watch support in both Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio. You can use your favorite IDE to:

  • Create new Watch Apps with an associated Watch Extension.
  • Edit watch user interface storyboards in the iOS Designer.
  • Start and debug watch apps in the iOS Simulator (Visual Studio uses the Mac Build Host).
  • Build and test your watch app Glance and Notification modes.
