Watchscreen: Bernard Desarnauts, CEO of Wristly Apple Watch research

If you have not read their insights on Apple Watch, I highly recommend you do. They are consistently fascinating.

Conrad is one of the young and brilliant developers behind Workflow, winner of a 2015 Apple Design Award, as well as the excellent (but less well-known) DeskConnect.
