I'm having a bit of an internal debate over which navigation pattern is more suitable for use on the Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch enables you to use
a) Hierarchical navigation - a list of items that link to a detail page, swiping left->right, or tapping top left chevron will take you back to the list page
b) Paged navigation - Swipe horizontally to navigate through a group of items like a stack of cards. Scrolling down on a card could show the extra details.
Advantages of a) - You can use the digital crown to prevent covering the interface - New users to the watch will become familiar more quickly if they already use another iOS device - Faster to skim a list than scroll through several cards.
Advantages of b) - Improved legibility as generally less information on screen at once - Fewer accidental touches - Can trigger any context sensitive actions (force touch) without needing to go to details.
Any other strong arguments for either case?
