No individual gestures allows
App developers should set no own gestures to the handling of their applications for the Apple Watch. Instead, they are bound to the interactions which purports them to Apple.
These looks include still wiping movements in the horizontal, vertical and in the corners, as well as the tap of the screen and Siri in addition to the previously mentioned short and long. The Crown on theside can be turned and her button and press the button on the sideof single or double.
