Thanks to iOS, when a notification arrives to the user’s iPhone it will be shown on the Apple Watch or on the iPhone, depending on the situation. By default the operating system provides a default notification interface to show the message but we can customize it by including different images or content.

WatchKit offers two types of notification interfaces:
