Accessibility Comments: 

Fully accessible with VoiceOver. VoiceOver is a bit laggy, though. One of the buttons is simpley labeled, "Button." But this is the only button on the first screen, so it is clear it is meant to be the start button. All of the other buttons are labeled, though it doesn't call them buttons. You just double tap as usual, and more options pop up. If you give yourself 5 minutes to initially get used to it, you will find the app very easy to use in future workouts.

Other Comments: 

This app is used to control the app on the phone. It cannot be used on the watch in isolation. You can select, "Other," from the built in Workout app on the watch, and then activate your 7 Minute Workout through the watch. That way you get credit towards your workout goal and the watch will monitor your heart rate and calories burned.
