Glances added to the Workout App wouldn't require any buttons or effect the minimalist look. It would in fact add to these because:Unfortunately the lack of buttons for the minimalist look hampers usability.
I was thinking they could use the friends button during workout as a start stop. I mean who's going to look for their friend to message mid running workoutMy answer was in reply to the person immediately before me regarding faster access to starting and stopping timers, etc. If the watch had two more small buttons on the other side as used to be the convention, the device would be a lot simpler and quicker to use, you wouldn't even have to look at the watch to do something as simple as start/stop a timer. Less isn't always more as apple seems to think. I expect the next version of the watch may have a third button and the one after that a fourth, lol.
