Passing data to Apple Watch app from iPhone

I made a utility for transferring the data between iWatch and iPhone. This is done using the WatchConnectivity framework which is available in watch OS 2 and later. General steps to perform. Although all steps are written in the working sample code. Create the  WCSession Implement the  WCSessionDelegate methods.  WKInterfaceController  will receive the context dictionary in one of the delegate method. In the  UIViewController,  Create the  WCSession. When ever you want to share information to watch, then update the  ApplicationContext                  try WatchData . sharedInstance . session . updateApplicationContext ([ "message" : message]) Full working code is available at
