Apple Watch maps

On Apple Watch, maps are static snapshots of geographic locations. Place a map in your interface at design time and show the appropriate region at runtime. The displayed region isn't interactive; tapping it opens the Maps app on Apple Watch. You can annotate the map to highlight points of interest or other relevant information. The system lets you add up to five annotations to a map.

Fit the map interface element to the screen. The entire element should be visible on the Apple Watch display without requiring scrolling.

Show the smallest region that encompasses the points of interest. The content within a map interface element doesn't scroll, so all key content must be visible within the displayed region.

For developer guidance, see WKInterfaceMap.
