Apple Watch Screen inside of AE position + scaling link within multiple layers

Hello!

I am trying to recreate the Apple watch screen within AE:

http://cdn.cultofmac.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/wearables-soar-in-q2-20...

So far I have this expression on my circles:

M = thisComp.layer("Matte");
minScale = [0,0];
maxScale = [100,100];
p = M.fromComp(toComp(anchorPoint));
a = M.sampleImage(p,[.5,.5],true,time)[3];
linear(a,0,1,maxScale,minScale)

This with my Matte layer makes the layer scale as they get closer to the edge with a mask with feathering on my matte layer, but I can't seem to get my circles to move in position closer to each other as they scale down.

I think I would need an expression that links each Circle to each other surrounding circle to check what each circles scale is and adjust accordingly.

Does this makes sense?

Many thanks!
