    The Apple Watch is the next most expected device from Apple, and new information is surfacing on a constant basis. Apple has made available the WatchKit SDK to developers, and now we have new details related to Apple's wearable device's display resolution.

    According to MacRumors, the first publication to observe this, the smaller 38mm Apple Watch has a resolution of 272 x 340, while the larger 42mm Apple Watch has a resolution of 312 x 390. Apple refers to the Apple Watch display as "Retina," and instructs developers to use 2x image assets. Here are some more details:

    Apple also mentions that its Apple Watch aims to: "blur the boundaries between physical object and software" by using the Digital Crown navigation tool, the Taptic Engine for subtle alerts, and Force Touch, which is a new touch control system. Apple also says that the design "should contribute to this experience of hardware and software feeling indistinguishable." and needs to be thoughtful.

    The content created for the Apple Watch should be "lightweight," suggests Apple. But if we look at how small device is, there's just no other solution. One thing is for sure - it will be really curious to see how will apps look on the Apple Watch.
