  • Patent number: 10281999
    Abstract: Button functionalities for user interfaces, e.g., for use with a portable multifunction device, are disclosed. Exemplary button functionalities are described for an electronic device with a display, a rotatable and depressible input mechanism, and/or a button. Different device features may be accessed, depending on whether the rotatable and depressible input mechanism or the button is activated, and further depending on whether the activation represents a single press, a double press, or an extended press on the rotatable and depressible input mechanism or the button.

  • Patent number: 10254939
    Abstract: A method includes detecting first movement of a first contact on an on-screen ruler in a first direction around a pivot location; in response to the first movement: rotating the ruler by an angular amount according to the first movement; and when the ruler has entered a snap zone associated with a snap angle upon rotation by the first angular amount, rotating the ruler by a first adjusted amount to bring the ruler into alignment with the first snap angle; detecting second movement of the first contact in a second direction and the second movement satisfies unsnapping criteria; and in response to the second movement, rotating the ruler by a second adjusted amount to bring the ruler into alignment with the first contact.

  • Publication number: 20180206766
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to devices and processes for monitoring attributes of a user's physical activity (e.g., workout) or inactivity, and to user interfaces (e.g., an activity indicator) for displaying the same. In some examples, a device determines whether physical activity corresponds to a first type based on a first set of criteria, and whether physical activity corresponds to a second type based on a second set of criteria. In some examples, the device controls an inactivity timer that measures user's inactivity. In some examples, the device displays a first visual representation of an attribute or amount of a first type of physical activity, and a second visual representation of an attribute or amount of a second type. In some examples, the device displays a third visual representation of an attribute or amount of a third type of activity. In some examples, the third visual representation corresponds to user's inactivity.

  • Patent number: 9794741
    Abstract: A host device (e.g., mobile device) and a wearable device can cooperate to provide location-specific information to a user. For example, a host device can maintain a store of location-specific information records. When the host device detects that its current location corresponds to a relevant location for one of the records, the host device can send the record (or a portion thereof) to a paired wearable device. The wearable device can present information content from the record to a human user and/or to a machine such as a scanner or wireless communication terminal.

  • Publication number: 20160299570
    Abstract: A function of an electronic device can be invoked using a wrist gesture (e.g., flexion or extension) that is detected by a wrist-worn device. The gesture can be detected using sensors in the wrist-worn device, e.g., in the wristband and/or behind a face member. A specific gesture can be identified from a library based on analysis of sensor signals. The invoked function can be executed on the wrist-worn device or another device that is in communication with the wrist-worn device.
