Best Apple Watch apps: 25 fantastic apps you need to download on your Apple Watch

Lewis Painter | Dec. 14, 2015
The Apple Watch has a great selection of third-party apps available.

It'll also notify you when the International Space Station (ISS) is due to fly over your location and lets you tweet its astronauts!

It caters to amateur stargazers; displaying images of constellations that are visible in your location, giving you a greater insight about what you're looking at and enabling you to star gaze more accurately.

Best Apple Watch apps: Strava

While Strava is similar to Runtastic, Strava boasts the ability to track bike rides as well as running. Strava will display real time stats including elevation gain, average speed, distance and heart rate during your exercise session.

It can also be split into different segments that gives you details of your workout, helping to keep you motivated. While on the topic of motivation, you'll also receive a virtual trophy whenever you set a personal record. Everyone likes trophies!

Best Apple Watch apps: Tagger

Tagger makes it easy for photographers to geotag digital camera shots with a tap on the Apple Watch. It also includes "golden hour" times so you can capture the perfect light conditions based on your location and the inclusion of nearby photos (powered by Flickr) can give you that bit of inspiration that you need.

You have two choices when it comes to geotagging - you can geotag a single point, or track continuously. Bear in mind that tracking continuously will most likely have an affect on the battery life of your iPhone, as the Apple Watch doesn't have built-in GPS.

£2.99 | Download Tagger for iOS here.

Best Apple Watch apps: TripAdvisor

The much beloved TripAdvisor app has also made an appearance on the Apple Watch. You have access to TripAdvisor's vast library of traveller reviews as well as ratings and photos of hotels, restaurants and attractions straight from your Apple Watch.

The TripAdvisor glance will give you recommendations of nearby points of interest based on your location and time of day - for example, at midday it'll automatically suggest the highest rated restaurant in your area and then give you walking directions via Apple Maps.

Best Apple Watch apps: Twitter

Twitter has been redesigned to fit the compact display of the Apple Watch. You can scroll through your Twitter feed directly from the watch, as well as favourite/retweet tweets on your feed. You can also view Top Trends if you want to see what the wider world is talking about.

You also have the choice of being notified by a simple tap on the wrist whenever a new tweet appears - a good idea for casual users, but not for those of us following 600+ people!
