How does it work?

Watch Mirror connects your Apple Watch and Figma design through the internet, and not directly. Because of that a pairing code is required.

Just like when visiting an island on Animal Crossing using a DodoCode™, when you open Watch Mirror on your Apple Watch a pairing code is generated and displayed.

On Figma, right click anywhere on the canvas, select "Plugins", then "Watch Mirror Beta". A window will appear where you will need to enter the provided pairing code by the Apple Watch app. Clicking connect should fire things up!

If you don’t see Watch Mirror Beta on the list, you need to install the plugin by visiting its page on Figma’s Community, making sure you are logged in, and clicking the Install button on the corner.

Can I navigate my prototype?

Yes. Ish. Basic navigation functionality has been implemented, but only for "On Click" interactions that "Navigate To" or go "Back". Links, overlays and swapping are not available, as well as any navigation animation.

Those features are planned for future releases. Let us know if you have use for any of them.

Is it secure?

Watch Mirror uses HTTPS connections between your devices and our servers, so attackers are not able to spy on your data.

Additionally, only two clients are allowed to connect using the same pairing code, so even if your pairing code is compromised, an attacker is not able to get access to your designs.

We only transmit images from Figma to the Watch Mirror app, we never store anything in our servers.

It is important to note that we do not provide end-to-end encryption at this point, which means our servers have access to the contents of the transmitted messages. Please read our privacy policy for more information.

I need to talk

I can lend an ear. Or eye. If you have problems or have feedback, get in touch with Wes on Twitter or send an email to, and we (well, Wes) will get in touch soon.
