Learn about running your app in the simulator, and the different options for running watch apps.
- [Instructor] With the simulator set in Xcode…and the simulator running, you're ready to run the project.…To review, the simulator works just like the watch.…The buttons on the side, when pressed,…perform like real buttons.…By scrolling on the digital crown, you can scroll.…Scroll on the watch face and we get time travel.…Click home and you get home.…The simulator usually launches directly into your app,…but you'll see no progress of it loading there,…which is why I often go to the home screen…before I run the project so I can watch the project load.…
Go back to Xcode now.…You can build and run the project…by pressing the run button at the top of Xcode.…However, I like to build first, then run.…Press Cmd + B or go to Product, Build…and build the project.…Depending on what's indexed and built already,…this may take a few minutes to a few seconds.…Once built, now run.…Again, you can use the run button…or Product, Run.…
Now go back to the simulator.…You'll see up here that the simulator actually loads an app.…Usually it'll go ahead and launch that app.…
