Making App Icons for watchOS

According to Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines, every app must provide an icon to be displayed on the Apple Watch Home screen and in various other contexts. An app should specify several different icons of different dimensions to suit different screen sizes and different situations.

You can save valuable time by using Makeappicon.com to generate app icons of all dimensions you need for submitting your apps to Apple in one click, no matter it’s built for iOS, watchOS, macOS and iMessage App & Sticker Pack, and focus on coding and improving your apps.

Here is the dimensions for watchOS apps:
