Previously I mentioned a tool allowing you to render UIViews as an image sequence for use as WatchKit animations and a tool for creating those nice radial charts seen in man Apple Watch apps.

Here’s an open source tool from Mike Swanson called JBWatchActivityIndicator that allows you to easily generate and save Apple style activity indicators and save them for use within your Apple Watch interfaces with a high degree of customization.

With JBWatchActivityIndicator you can generate the standard Apple dots, and ring style activity indicators and customize the minute details such as the number of segments, duration, and frame rate of the activity indicators.

This animation from the readme showing JBWatchActivityIndicator tool in action with its different customization options:

You can find JBWatchActivityIndicator on Github here.
