Alpha Software has announced the release of Alpha WatchBench, an Apple Watch app that enables developers to code iOS apps for the wearable device in JavaScript.

Alpha WatchBench is designed for developers to create working prototype apps on an iPhone coded in JavaScript rather than Objective-C or Swift. The app comes with developer APIs and documentation for creating applications that interact with real-time data and services. It offers working buttons and menus rather than a static prototype made up of mockups and wireframes.

“Alpha WatchBench allows all developers—not just iOS developers—to experiment with how Apple Watch can fit into their business processes and determine its best use cases for improved productivity,” said Dan Bricklin, CTO of Alpha Software. “This is a powerful tool that will give companies a head start on exploiting opportunities opened by Apple Watch.”
