Rachel, I’ve miscommunicated my intentions, it seems --not in regards to what the UI does, but what I’m hoping for from anyone that takes the time to help by sharing their thoughts on what I need/ed help with, and in particular, how I’ve expressed that to you.
I assure you that I was not snapping at all, if you’re referring to how I concluded my previous response, please believe me when I say that everything was meant with the utmost sincerity…I should’ve included words that would’ve reiterated my intentions (in this case: express my gratitude for your willingness to help), like “Many thanks regardless” or even just “:)”…lesson learned.
For what it’s worth, the reason I chose the words used to conclude my previous response is that previous instances of me asking members of a forum for their thoughts on this same question all ended with the conversation diverted off-topic to visual design, for example.
And just as with this thread, I really did appreciate that people were passionate about trying to help as best they can, but fact remains that the focus was: selecting the best test methods. The premise was that all preliminary work (research, synthesis, ideation etc) that lead to the proposed solution featured in the image of the watch, had already been done and validated.
TLDR: I honestly did not mean what you thought I meant with the way I concluded my previous response.
I’ve emailed a copy of this message to you directly as well.
